ok, so I downloaded Ubuntu because I wanted the tux for tf2. the downloading only took about 8 minutes and it was done. when I restart my computer it asks me if I want to use windows 8 or Ubuntu, and when ever I click on Ubuntu the screen turns black and I get a bunch of messages. one is "ALERT!" another is "DROPPING THE BOMB SHELL!" or at least I think that's what the second one said. can anyone tell me what's wrong and what I can do to fix it? would be much appreciated :D
