I recently bought a DELL Inspiron 14z Ultrabook that came with Windows 8 64-bit. I want to make it dual boot with Ubuntu 13.04.

But when the Grub2 menu appears when I go to Try Ubuntu or Install Ubuntu, I get the following error message: You need to load the kernel first.

How can I install Ubuntu 13.04 on my laptop?
