Re: Msi ge 60
I have a GE60-20E. I specifically got an earlier model with Win7 on 1 TB hard drive, so I did not need to figure out UEFI. I used nomodeset after I got that black screen the first time I tried booting 64-bit 13.10 iso and that worked. I do not know if it was really needed or if I just did not wait long enough when screen went black during hardware detection, but I thought it might be needed with the dual Intel/Nvidia graphics (sometimes nomodeset is required for nvidia alone).
After you install nvidia drivers, to use nvidia graphics put optirun before the command. Although some other things need to be done to run Steam Source games.
