I have an MSI GS70 laptop running Windows 8 and I'm attempting to dual boot Ubuntu alongside Windows 8. I'm following the directions to install Ubuntu in UEFI mode and have tried disabling SecureBoot and all that stuff. I don't think I can turn off Intel SRT because I currently run a RAID array and doing so would result in a loss of data for me.
Anyhow, onto the actual issue at hand. I can successfully select the USB drive as the primary boot device and I get to the page that asks whether I want to try Ubuntu or Install it or do the OEM option and so on. So I get that far, but when I select to try Ubuntu without installing, it goes to a black screen and it appears to quit reading from the USB stick and nothing is displayed on screen. Does anyone have an idea why this is happening?
Edit: I do want to add that my laptop has all USB 3.0 ports, if that makes a difference.
