I have an ultrabok with 500GB hard drive and 32GB SSD.

I have created a 100GB partition with windows 7 x64 on the HDD and i want to install a linux distro on the 32GB SSD.

This is how i try to install:

I grabbed the 64-bit .iso of kubuntu(or other distros enumerated below)
Created a live usb with lili usb creator or gtk-usb-creator
Booted from usb
Change booting option to include nomodeset acpi_oso=Linux
Black screen



I have tried various options added to the grub booting options including nomodeset, acpi_osi=Linux and other i have found on various forums but i still get black screen.

Basically, before the desktop should show up ( all the programs are shown with started network, touchpad etc), I end up with either:

a completely blank screen
a blank screen with a NOT blinking cursor on top left side of the screen


I don't know what else to do now :(

Distros I have tried so far(all x64):

Mint 14 cinammon
Mint 14 mate
Mint 14 xfce
Mint 13 Cinammon
Ubuntu 12.10
LUbuntu 12.10
KUbuntu 12.10


Same problem on every distro... I'm just stuck now...

UPDATE:

I have managed to install Linux Mint 14 Cinammon x64, but it's a bit strange, and it doesn't fully work. Maybe by describing the steps some more experienced user can figure out what the problem is.

Steps:

Boot
Wait untill the sound of the logging screen to pop
Press the fn + F1 key to get the laptop into the sleep state
Start -> The login screen is displayed properly


Any ideas what's going on?

Note:

To install I did this:

Boot from USB
Edit grub boot menu and add acpi=off
Wait for system to load
Close the laptop lid -> wait untill the laptop sleeps
Open laptop lid -> the desktop is shown properly

Is this also an Optimus system? With on board Intel video and nVidia chip?
