I've just replaced the Release Preview of Windows 8 with Ubuntu 12.10, and it now fails to boot. Installing it went find, no errors were reported, that I seen anyway. The PC in question is an Asus Eee PC X101CH. http://i.imgur.com/HKXnd8C.jpg That is displayed when I boot the laptop, and having left it over an hour, I was a little concerned. So, I reinstalled the OS. I'm getting the exact same results again. Final note: Ohman I have no idea what I'm doing help me.
