Lately I'm nervous to go with Ubuntu.
I used it as my only OS since version 8.04 until 11:10 when I started having problems every time I went to install it.
A year ago I'm on Windows because everything I try to install on my machine goes wrong, until the LTS version is unstable.
I downloaded Ubuntu 12.10 and now tried to boot.
1 - First problem:
"Secure Boot not enabled"
I tried a few things on the internet nothing intuitive, a few things here ... other there ... did not find anything that explained clearly. So I risked moving into BIOS and found a property called more or less "Quick Boot", I enabled.
I tried booting again and again the message appeared, but instead of freezing the system as before, allowed me to go to the Grub.
2 - Second problem:
I chose the option "Try without installing" and came another error like this: "Error on reading from cd'0 0x5b55 sector." He spends a few seconds and gives a "Kernel Panic"
I've done a CD and the md5 matches the hash informed on the Ubuntu website, the CD is intact.
I downloaded Ubuntu 12.10 x64.
My machine is a notebook CCE
i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00 GHz
4 GB DDR3 1333
HM65 Express Chipset Family
HD 500GB Hitachi
bios-vendor: Phoenix Technologies Ltd.
