Asus x201e notebook
It came with Windows 8
No CD/DVD drive -I'm using a bootable USB
I'm installing 12.04.3 desktop 64bits
I managed to get it to boot from USB, opened the trial version -it went OK-, clicked the installing icon, selected language and got stuck on this screen forever:
Eventually I felt uneasy, restarted it and saw old Windows 8 again. I'm starting to feel Windows 8 startup screen as if it were some weird version of Groundhog Day's radio alarm clock...
