I've been using Ubuntu for years. Now I bought a new notebook and want to install Ubuntu again but I can't. My notebook is a Lenovo S300 ieadpad with preinstalled Windows 8. I want Ubuntu to be my only OS.
Here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI) I read some instructions to how install Ubuntu on a UEFI system. So I downloaded ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso and created a live USB. On the USB, there is now a Virtualbox, is that right?
Then I tried to follow the steps described on the named webpage. The problem is, I can't find neither Quickboost nor the Intel Smart Response Technology in my Bios. This is how my Bios looks like:
ubuntuone.com/1uR0P24CLHyjaz7WgodEkp ubuntuone.com/64mh9QZ2EzIdI9d7YkU1ws ubuntuone.com/1wmNF0Z02X1xQw1YhT9ZcO ubuntuone.com/2aHUj4YYrQ0qihebFfFKdA
I tried to simply boot from USB but this didn't work. In this case, the Lenovo Logo appears and nothing happens.
Please, could you help me? I really want to return to Ubuntu.
