Hello, I am a european boy living in Shanghai(China), couple days ago I bought a Toshiba Qosmio X70 here. I clearly had chinese OS so I decided to install ubuntu and english windows 8(I could not change the language from the options).
I had usb sticks of both of them but even changing the BIOS booting options the pc would boot the chinese OS.
So I burned a DVD with ubuntu but after the initial menu the laptop would get stuck on a black screen. Same happened with the Windows stick(except it would stuck on the "starting windows" screen).
So I tried to change the BIOS, but the only one available on the official site was 1.0 version meanwhile I have 1.1 version and the .exe bios flashing program says it's not compatible.
Can someone please help me? I don't know what to do, I paid a lot for this pc and I feel like I wasted the only money I had on it.
