- Are you intending to dual boot with Windows or overwrite Windows?

Can you install Ubuntu in UEFI mode (with GPT partition table, not MSDOS partitions with MBR)? Maybe you need another method to make the USB drive, for example cloning the iso with mkusb according to the Ubuntu Forums tutorial "Howto make USB boot drives"
- Ubuntu 13.10 64 bits on bootable USB, made with Rufus 1.4.3: MBR with BIOS/UEFI
Could be. Maybe you have to test a few proprietary drivers before you find one that works.
I had the feeling this issue has something to do with the fact that the latest Nvidia Graphics drivers are not provided on the bootable Ubuntu:
I have not heard of Melchior.
1) If I modify the file /boot/grub/grub.cfg to insert 'nomodeset' before 'quiet splash' and select option 2) during the boot, I get the same result: black screen.
2) I heard about 'Melchior
' which is supposed to be able to customize the bootable Ubuntu, but I was unable to locate it on the Internet.
How can I install Nvidia drivers on the USB stick and make them installed with Ubuntu?
Or maybe someone has another solution?
You can install proprietary graphics drivers from the Software Center, Synaptics or with terminal window commands. The name of the packages are
nvidia-<some number> for example
