I have just purchase a Lenovo G500S laptop with Windows 8 preinstalled. I am new to Linux based operating systems and I’m attempting to make it a dual boot system with Ubuntu.
I have backed up my Windows partitions, shrank the window partition, turned off fast boot and disabled secure boot.
I then created an image file of Ubuntu v13.10 and attempted to install it. I was presented with the install menu options and selected to install Ubuntu. The disk spun for a while, and then nothing, I attempted the same with v12.04 and got the same results.
I would appreciate anyone that may have some helpful hints.
Thank you in advance.
