I'm in a bind with my new system. (first time Ubuntu installer)
(All brand new)
ASROCK Z87 EXTREME4 1150 SERIES MOTHERBOARD
i7 CORE 3.4GHZ HASWELL 4470 Intel PROCESSOR
2 KINGSTON 4GB DDDR RAM
1 KINGSTON 128GB SSD V300
ASROCK Tech Support stated my bios confiq, system boot sequence and sata connection are correct.
I get Black screen with flashing cursor top left corner. USB boot attempt. (2.0 port)
I get "Press any key to continue" message. DVD boot attempt.
ASROCK Bios has a shell option in which I had to download .efi file and rename it shellx64.efi
Finally in EFI SHELL and I can see USB DIR
What do I do to launch this iso file?
If anyone wants to mention GRUB or GRUB2 or any other third party stuff to mount ISO files in efi shells, please list a concise How-To and provide links to software you wish to suggest.
Otherwise, please note that the ASROCK tech stated that the EFI SHELL is not to install operating systems, but for other functions regarding driver installs, etc., not for iso.
I felt that the tech spoke with confidence.
Is it that ubuntu 13.04 is not ready for what I'm throwing at it?
Do I need to wait for the soon release of 13.1 Salamander or whatever its called?
I've done enough research to know that the information provided should help resolve my issue and get me going in the correct direction.
Mind Blown in Michigan
Its not a CHECKSUM issue
I went down that rabbit hole and downloaded iso multiple times...same results
