I've heard a lot of good things about Ubuntu, so I decided to try it out on my HP notebook 2000 laptop (via LiveUSB). My laptop came pre-installed with Windows 8, and it has a UEFI system. However, every time I try to boot from the USB (16 GB), I get an error message saying "Selected Boot Device Failed". I turned off SecureBoot, but I still get the same result. I have also tried creating the LiveUSB from both Rufus and the Universal USB Installer.

Quick Recap of what I'm using:

HP notebook 2000 laptop, windows 8 pre-installed with UEFI
Ubuntu 13.10
LiveUSB - 16 GB (Tried Rufus and UUI)
SecureBoot is off

Note: I still need to be able to boot to Windows 8, I just want to be able to play around with Ubuntu
