comment Ubuntu on Asus X205TA
The absence of /mnt/EFI/BOOT was my fault; I was using a 32-bit iso, not the 64-bit. Sorry for the noise. But, with that resolved, I still cannot install ubuntu as normal. When booting off of the usb, I am dropped into a grub rescue prompt. I don't know how to proceed from there.

comment Trying to install Ubuntu on ASUS X205TA
The instructions you link to could be a bit clearer (and I've not been able to get them to work all the way through). The suggestion is to prepare the USB key from which you want to install onto the x205TA on another machine which has an installation of ubuntu 14.10; the tools used aren't available on Windows. This would have been better posted as a comment on the answer at askubuntu.com/questions/551320/ubuntu-on-asus-x205ta.

It helps, but not all the way :-) Your link says "cp /tmp/bootia32.efi /mnt/EFI/BOOT/" There was no /mnt/EFI, so I mkdir'ed /mnt/EFI/BOOT and followed along. I did get the ASUS to boot off of the USB (Huzzah!) but only into a grub2 prompt. So, I'm not able to "Install Ubuntu as usual." A bit more detail about how to proceed would be useful. Thanks for the help so far, though!
