I have just finished setting up a new computer with the following specs:
CPU: Intel i5 4570
GPU: GYGABYTE GEFORCE 750 Ti
MOBO: GYGABYTE Z87X-D3H

I downloaded 14.04 put it on a bootable USB and tried to boot.
Once booted it shows me the black GRUB menu selection menu
Try ubuntu
Install
Memory Test

etc

but when I click install it just procceeds to a black screen and nothing happens.

I am pretty sure it is a display problem as if I chose "Try ubuntu" I can hear the bootup sound if I wait a bit.

PS. The screen is connected through the GPU with HDMI
PS2. The USB is USB3 and is connected to a USB3 port.
PS3 the motherboard is using UEFI if that matters.
