Here's the problem (suddenly appeared). I turn on my pc tries to boot... The underscore blinks for some time, screen goes black and starts over again. Goes on for some time and after a while i get: boot0: GPT boot0: GPT boot0: error I've only left it once to go up to there i usually restart.

I tried inserting 13.04 live cd with no luck..same thing happens. After that I inserted a Win 8 dvd which froze when the windows logo appeared(i didn't wait for very long it could have been working, it was there for like a minute).

Restarted after a couple of times and GRUB loaded properly and now im on win 8. Also a couple of times the pc froze while on the gigabyte logo.

extra info: windows 8 and ubuntu are installed on diff hard drives. I have a Gigabyte 970A-DS motherboard and fx6300 amd cpu, saphire 7790 gfx(i know this is useless info but why not :P).

I hope it's not the motherboard.... Any ideas? :/

Please run the Boot Info Script from Linux (even from a live CD) and post a link to the RESULTS.txt file that it generates. – Rod Smith Aug 2 '13 at 15:34

You wouldn't ruin your motherboard installing Ubuntu. Chances are, you just have Secure Boot enabled (don't you just love Win8?). To fix that, boot into BIOS and toggle the Secure-Boot setting off.
