I am Trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on Win 8 Tablet, Acer Iconia w3. I have tried to boot from USB and DVD via USB drive. Any help would be appreciated. I am looking to wipe Windows 8 completely and only run Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Thank you!

I also tried for 3 hours to boot anything but Windows8 from stick and USB-DVD. No success. Googling, I learned, that many people tried it, but the BIOS of our W3 just blocks booting anything but Windows8. –  user299600 Jul 1 '14 at 21:47
