I got a new computer (HP Envy h8-1534) pre-installed with Windows 8, and came across an interesting issue while attempting to install Ubuntu.
So, as I install, I don't get that slide asking whether or not I want to install side by side with another operating system, wipe the entire disk, or make my own configuration.
I get this slide instead:
If I push anything, it then gives me the message: "Ubuntu has experienced an internal error."
I then tried using an Ubuntu 12.04.2 disk that worked fine for me in the past, and got exactly the same problem.
