This question already has an answer here:
Ive been reading all of the ask ubuntu questions i can find, but im still having trouble getting ubuntu installed on my new laptop! it came pre-installed with windows 8.1 and id like to dual boot with either 12.04 or 13.10, whichever i can get running! I am not exteremely computer savvy, but i know enough to get me by. I tried changing from UEFI boot to CSM in the bios, disabling secureboot, and disabling fast startup to no avail. I still would love to be able to run ubuntu, but i cant find anything else to help me! I can get to the first screen where it gives the try before installing and install options, but once i choose an option, it just turns the screen black. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
PS: I'm running a toshiba satellite, if that helps anyone!
