I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on a new Lenovo G505 with Windows 8. I am admittedly not much of a computer person, and have not been able to get Ubuntu to fully install. So far, I have:
- partitioned the hard drive
- created a bootable USB
- disabled Fast Boot
- disabled Secure Boot
- Enabled legacy mode
When I boot from the USB I get the option to try or install Ubuntu. No matter what I pick, I then see the opening purple Ubuntu screen for about 15 seconds, then a really fast script, and then the screen goes black and the installation hangs up. I have to restart the computer to try again.
What am I doing wrong, and how do I get rid of this horrible Windows 8?!
Thanks so much for the help!
