I have a HP Pavilion g7 1303 which has Ubuntu 12.04.1 and Windows 8 currently installed (both are x64). I decided to get Ubuntu 12.10 (not upgrade, new install). I downloaded the .iso and used the universal USB installer to put it on a USB. Then I plug the USB in my computer and start it. I press f6 for more options and select "nomodeset" (I have issues with my GPUs - yes I have 2 of them). And then some text. A lot of text. The last part of text is something about USB. Every line contains the word "USB". (usb connect, device * ...) and then there's just that text and nothing happens. Same happens if I select install Ubuntu to hard drive. What should I do to make it work?
