I need to install Ubuntu 10.04 on a new Asus Windows 8 laptop (s300). I need to do this for a development project which required that specific version.
I have successfully been able to install 12.10 from a USB stick. But if I try the same process using 10.04 it the machine ignores the USB stick even when I am explicitly booting from it and goes straight to booting Windows.
I think it has something to do with EFI / UEFI on newer machines, since any installation guides demand 12.10 as a pre-requisite for EFI systems.
I am not fluent in Linux or Windows 8 and I am stuck.
Is it in anyway possible to accomplish this or am I out of luck?
Any help / advice would be hugely appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
