I've been wanting to install Ubuntu on my Ativ Smart PC because it's really slow with windows, so I was hoping for a bit better speed with Linux. The problem is that it simply won't let me install Ubuntu.
I've tried a lot of different things, including trying to boot up a LiveUSB (Both x86 and x64). It's a Windows 8 computer and I've turned secure-boot off. This PC seems to hate anything other than Windows booting, when i try to boot the LiveUSB it loads up but i get this error every single time:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
- Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
- Choose your language settings, then click "next".
- Click "Repair your computer".
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
info: the application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or containing errors
It won't even let me boot up formatters so i could erase everything off the HDD, so I'm really lost here. Help??
