I have been trying for two days to get may acer predator series g to recognize my boot dist. I have one dvd from Ubuntu user which worked on my laptop and one i burned my self 12.10 64 bit which should work. Reading through documintation http://www.itwire.com/opinion-and-analysis/open-sauce/57822-ubuntu-1210-and-windows-8-an-uneasy-marriage/57822-ubuntu-1210-and-windows-8-an-uneasy-marriage?start=1 and other sources I determined I had to turn secure boot off and try restart (holding shift key)or pressing f12 and getting boot options. In both cases the boot up disks are not seen.
My bios setup is as follows. Boot Option Boot priority Order 1st boot Device [CD&DVD] 2nd Boot Device[Removable Device]] 3rd boot Device [hard Disk:UEFI: ST20...]
Authentication System Boot State User Secure Boot Mode State Disabled Secure Boot [Disabled]
No legacy option from what I can see. So I am at a loss. Could 13.04 work or am I missing something. I don't have the Windows disk.
