This was not my first time attempting dual boot, but it is for doing this with Windows 8. The troublesome UEFI does not detect my USB stick although I changed the boot order and disabled secure boot. Then I changed to Legacy BIOS, it now detects the USB stick and I can boot into a live session, but it is still useless as Windows 8 needs to boot using UEFI and automatically I have to install Ubuntu as UEFI too, but there is no such option since I am using Legacy BIOS. So I tried to install Ubuntu using Legacy BIOS (thought of switching between UEFI and Legacy BIOS when I want to switch OS), but when I restart, I can't boot into Ubuntu at all, it always states "Please insert removable media and..."...Any possible workaround for this? It is kinda important as I have projects to be done using Ubuntu.
**Note: I am running Acer Aspire V3-571G. Made a Live USB Stick using ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso
