This question already has an answer here:
I have been trying to install ubuntu 13.04 dual-booted with windows 8 on my computer (HP ENVY 15 Notebook PC). My motherboard is UEFI supported. Following most guides, I created a LiveUSB to boot from, I disabled secureboot and disabled FastStarup. My computer doesn't seem to have intel smart response technology or a fast/quickboot option. I boot the LiveUSB (UEFI) and am able to get to the GRUB 2.0 menu; however, when I select "try ubuntu" I get a black screen and when I select "install ubuntu" it boots me straight into windows 8.
Moments ago I tried booting in Legacy mode and still ended up with a black screen. When I select nomodeset I get another black screen this time with a blinking underscore at the top left; when I tried acpi = off I received the message "an error occurred when trying to mount /tmp" and when I try nolapic I get a black screen (not sure if I am supposed to try nolapic and acpi = off at the same time).
If anyone has any information on how to solve this issue I would greatly appreciate! Please keep in mind this is my first time using Ubuntu or any linux distro for that matter.
