I'm trying to dual boot windows 8 and Ubuntu on a Lenovo Ideapad y510p. I shrank my windows 8 partition from ~900gb to ~600 gb (leaving ~300gb) for ubuntu.

disk partitions

I have UEFI. I have disable SRT, fastboot, secureboot

I created a bootable USB using Universal USB installer with Ubuntu 12.04.3 ISO.

I was unable to boot from USB so I changed BIOS setting to Legacy boot and Legacy first.

When I boot from USB I get message that says press enter to continue or something, and then lots of messages fly by and ends with:

 scanning hard disk partitions to create /etc/fstab 

The process just hangs there

Any suggestions?
