Hi, I'm a windows user trying to convert to Linux. But there were problems when I try to install Ubuntu. So I found out that I installed windows 7 from the BIOS way and I know that I have to install it the same way as windows which I have no idea about.
I created the boot-able USB drive as listed in the instructions on the main Ubuntu website from the 12.04 desktop amd64 which is the 64 bit version. I turned off my computer and turned it back on, pressed f11, and it shows me that I can boot from 4 places. One of them was the USB and one of them said something about the UEFI USB. I tried the UEFI but when I got to the screen where it said install Ubuntu, 5 seconds later, it just turned into a black screen for like 10 minutes and just stayed there. Then I tried the USB option, booting from it, it asked me if I wanted to run it or install it. I chose install but after the initializing log, it froze at another initializing log:
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
