I bought an Asus G75VW. It has the new UEFI BIOS instead of the old style BIOS (1980's) and has Windows 8 preinstalled.
I cannot get the G75VW to install Ubuntu 12.10 in EFI mode. I did get Ubuntu to load if I changed the BIOS to CSM and the computer sees and installs Ubuntu in "legacy mode". I attempted boot repair, and Ubuntu will load after 1 minute but as legacy BIOS only. If I changed the BIOS to UEFI "Binary is whitelisted" is displayed and I get a purple screen.
I want to keep my preinstalled Windows 8 on internal drive bay 1 and install Ubuntu 12.10 on internal drive bay 2, and have the option of booting either one in grub.
I am a software programmer, but I am very bad at understanding BIOS and partitioning.
