I've installed 12.04.2 on a OS-less Asus B85M-E (Intel Core i5-4430 [LGA1150]). When I boot, it freezes on a 'pink screen'. Alt-Ctrl-F1 has no output.
i have already reinstalled once. I read in many forum posts that some specific UEFI features cause problems with Ubuntu and GRUB and should be disabled before installation. So I disabled Fast Boot and Intel SRT, and then reinstalled. Secure boot was enabled when I installed a second time. Successful reinstallation, same freeze-up on reboot. I've since confirmed that Fast Boot, SRT and also Secure Boot are disabled. No change when booting.
Should I reinstall again? Should I use a later version of Ubuntu and the Linux kernel? Should I disable anything else?
Also, are there any guides on the UEFI BIOS menu for this Asus motherboard. It has so many options and many exotic names. The last machine I installed Ubuntu (12.04) on was a Celeron laptop, so this is all very fancy. It would be nice to know which options can or cannot be used with Linux.
Thanks for your help.
