So I recently had to get a new computer. It came pre-installed with Windows 8.1. Needless to say, the past month has been a nightmare. After a number of issues, thanks to a suggestion and to avoid having to pay $100 to downgrade to Windows 7, I decided to try Linux. But, after burning the Ubuntu disc image to a disc, I get an error message when trying to run the operating system and got an error message stating something was wrong with my Windows 8.1, what a surprise... I'm pretty stuck here and wondering if anyone has had success with Ubuntu and Windows 8.1. I'll try to regenerate the error message and get a picture of it. Thanks.
