I created a LiveUSB of Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS using Pendrive Linux.
- Created a separate 30GB partition using Windows 8 Disk Management
- Disabled Secure Boot (Didn't find an option to disable EFI boot)
- Disabled Fast Startup
The laptop starts the GRUB menu shows up but it doesn't go beyond that no matter what option i choose. After choosing any option the screen goes blank but the power is still on i can see the power light.
My laptop is:
processor- Intel i5 4200U
Video Card- 2GBnVidia 740M
The GRUB menu I see :
