I just got a new laptop: the Asus VivoBook X2O2E, and for some reason, ubuntu's (12.10) not working. Whenever I install it, I choose "reboot now", and then it shows an error: cannot load windows and unknown program; missing a required file. After four tries, I gave up. However, my technological life requires ubuntu, so I seek your help.

Thanks, rsinghal

You installed Linux over Windows 7 didn't you...? If you can answer that for me then I can tell you where to go from there. – user110879 Nov 26 '12 at 18:39
How did you install, using Wubi or through a liveUSB or liveDVD? – To Do Nov 26 '12 at 19:54
