You want UEFI mode, not some CSM compatibility mode. The install media boots both UEFI and legacy, so CSM is letting the machine decide which, and maybe it's choosing the wrong one. The second disk with Ubuntu probably should have gpt partitioning (not MSDOS partitioning). That will eliminate problems with primary/extended physical/logical partitions, everything in gpt is primary. Ubuntu has handled UEFI installs perfectly for years, it's the vendors who mess things up by adding non-standard restrictions, like specific names on the bootloaders or on the name in nvram to invoke them. Asus did not seem to have any issues (on an x200), but do read up on UEFI
