got a new laptop and i'd like to dual boot with the preinstalled windows 8 and ubuntu.
it is an hp 255 g1 with an amd a4 apu and 4gb ram. the uefi version is insydeh20.
i've been following this guide:
i have completed all the steps up to step 5 (run the ubuntu installer).
i cant boot the livecd. i've successfully burned the iso to a dvd (i'm using the zorinos 7.1 core image which is titled zorin-os-7.1-core-64.iso, it is an ubuntu 13.04 based distro). when i put the dvd in the drive and reboot, the laptop always boots into windows 8. i've disable secure boot, disabled fast startup, and made the dvd drive 1st in the uefi boot order.
i've been skimming a lot of guides and info on this and cant find anything relevant to my issue, as most of them address boot issues that occur after ubuntu is installed. my problem is that i can't even install it because i can't boot the livecd.
