I can't install Ubuntu on my new ASUS R510D laptop. I have messed with it for days. My laptop model is R510D. Its an AMD A10 Elite Quad Core. It has a Radeon HD 8670M 2GB card built in. Its running windows 8.1 64 bit and I want to run Ubuntu 64 bit along side of it. I have updated all of my video drivers and updated all of my windows drivers, i have also updated my bios to the latest version (Version 2.15.1227).
I have shrunk my disk to have unallocated space to install Ubuntu. I made a bootable USB of Ubuntu 13.10 and have set the UEFI bios to FAST BOOT = Disabled, SECURE BOOT = Disabled. I have selected the boot device to be the bootable USB and it loads the GNU GRUB version 1.99 main screen which says "Try Ubuntu without installing" "Install Ubuntu" and "Check disc for defects."
If I try to run or install it will just go to a black screen and do nothing more. If I press cntl+alt+dlt it will go back to the GNU GRUB menu. I can press e and edit the GRUB, so I have tried to add the line NOMODESET before quite splash to no avail. I have changed Quite splash to No splash and I see nothing. I have put NOMODESET after quite splash and even replaced quite splash with NOMODESET. I went back to the bios and tried to run it in Legacy mode by enabling LAUNCH CSM and LAUNCH PXE OpROM. This did nothing to rectify this issue either.
Nothing is working. Does anyone have any idea of what I need to do to install Ubuntu?
P.S. I thought the USB could be the issue so I downloaded the disk image again, even tried downloading 12.04 and it still hangs on the black screen. So if you're thinking my files or disk is corrupt, thats not it either.
