After hours of searching and trying different things I have yielded no results and need help figuring this out.
I got a new dell inspiron laptop, intel pentium processor. Its my first computer with a efi bootloader. As soon as it was out of the box I was installing Ubuntu Gnome remix 13.10. I booted from usb created by unetbootin from a Windows 8 prompt. It booted and installed. As I hate windows 8 I felt no reservations in keeping it so I wiped it clean for ubuntu. Well now Im trying to install a different distro, specifically pinguy. I have tried creating a usb with unetbootin. It gets ignored. usb-creator won't pick up the iso file at all. burned to disc gets ignored. there is no boot order in the setup menu. I don't want to change to legacy because I know ubuntu suports efi. Any help would be appreciated, Ive read countless articles and forum posts and can't find anyone else having the same issue.
