I'm trying to install Ubuntu 13.10 from a USB drive onto an Acer S7 alongside an existing Windows 8 partition.
I've set aside a 30GB partition for the Ubuntu installation.
When I run the installation, it doesn't detect any existing operating system. I've followed this guide to the letter - but on the last step of the 'Install Ubuntu' part (the actual installation), I get the following un-Googleable error:
In case the picture isn't clear enough - it's an error prompt with the message "??? ???". Clicking on "OK" takes me back to the first page in the installation (the one telling me that no operating system is detected). Pressing 'continue' is not an option because of the error prompt.
Is anyone familiar with this? How can I fix this error and install Ubuntu?
