I have a black screen after clicking on "Install Ubuntu" (nothing happens)... I have already tried all experiments found here : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1743535 (nomodeset,etc.)

I am desperate... I have a MSI GE60-OND with Windows 8. I disabled SecureBoot,FastBoot...

Thank you in advance

I have a GTX 660 with Optimus.

I already tried these changes in my grub : - change "quiet splash" by nomodeset - change "quiet splash" by i915.modeset=1 - change "quiet splash" by nvdia.modeset=1 - change "quiet splash" by nvdia.modeset=0 - change "quiet splash" by nomodeset
- change "quiet splash" by xforcevesa
- change "quiet splash" by i915.modeset=0 xforcevesa
- change "quiet splash" by vga=771

Nothing works, thanks for your help !
