This question already has an answer here:
I have a windows 8 Gateway desktop PC and I was wanting to install Ubuntu (13.10) on it.
Firstly I created a bootable USB using PenDriveLinux, the process was successful, and when I plug the flashdrive in using windows 7 AND 8, it is no longer recognized as TOSHIBA 8GB, but Install Ubuntu (H:), whenever I go into the BIOS of the Gateway PC, I set my removable disk as the first boot priority, and disable secure boot, and Launch CSM was set to always, and even after all these setting changes I still boot into windows 8.
I did notice that the motherboard in the Gateway PC was an exclusive motherboard, I don't know if that means anything but it is very frustrating and I would like some help to resolve this issue.
Thanks in advance, Gage
