So I have a Dell inspiron15 laptop that I won in a raffle. It came prepackaged with windows 8 and a bunch of bloatware. Of course it had UEFI and all of that stuff as well.
I am trying to install ubuntu 13.04 64bit version and after quite a few errno 5 errors, I finally got it to work by using pendrive and booting/installing from usb.
Now, when I turn on the computer, everything starts to load, it goes to a purple screen that asks me to select the OS I want to use (I deleted win8 sort of on accident). I select Ubuntu and it goes to a purple screen and freezes.
I tried adding init=5 after quiet splash and that didn't work. Any other things I can try? Does it having something to do with the $vt_Handoff line?
