I am using a VAIO SVE14123CNB LAPTOP with:

  • BIOS Version R0160D7
  • EC Version E0160D7
  • ME Version

I am using 64-bit Windows and I tried to install UBUNTU 64-bit 13.04, but nothing worked, so I changed to SECURE BOOT-DISABLE;BOOT MODE LEGACY...and installed it.

Once I remove my usb-livedisk, no operating system prompt occurs, so I checked the Boot status of my windows-8 and its UEFI.

How do I operate becos?! I can't navigate to ubuntu, since it is installed in Legacy Mode.

Urgent help needed took assistance from Installed Ubuntu 13.04 alongside with a pre-installed Windows 8. Neither boot!
