Sorry for the amateur-ish question... but I would be very grateful for some help!!
I am trying to boot Ubuntu 12.10 from USB3 on my Toshiba Ultrabook Z935 in order to install it alongside Windows 8. But I can't get it to boot from the usb!
Naturally, the first thing I did was change the boot order in the BIOS so the USB memory is first. But when it didn't make a difference, I started researching what the problem could be and I've tried everything I came across and I still can't get it to boot.
I disabled the secure boot, and after a few other changes in the bios, I finally disabled the USB legacy emulation. The latter resulted in "preparing automatic repair" on the Toshiba startup screen and nothing else. All other changes kept booting me into windows. I read a few different things, but so far nothing is working for me.
Thanks so much,
