I've recently bought a HP Pavilion G6 preloaded with Windows 8. I don't like Windows 8 so I want to install Ubuntu. I am new to Linux and have been looking though the Ask Ubuntu and have noticed that there are a lot of issues with new HP machines.
I've followed all the install instructions and can boot from the DVD.
I installed Ubuntu but its almost as if the information is not translating onto my hard drive. When I reload Windows 8 I can see that a new partition has been created but I am unable to boot to Ubuntu.
I've done this a good few times but I have had no success.
I have been into my BIOS and have turned off Secure Boot which I have noticed has been an issue with others but I have still had no luck.
