This question already has an answer here:
I bought a Sony Vaio with Windows 8 yesterday.
I want to install Ubuntu, (latest version), alongside Windows. There is an assist button on the laptop to enter the boot option menu, (otherwise, Windows 8 is booted by default.
Whenever I choose the, 'boot from CD' option, it says 'No operating system found'. CD is valid since I tried it on another computer and it worked fine. I have tried both versions, 12.04 and 12.10.
What is the problem, or how should I install Ubuntu on my laptop?
