comment Installing Ubuntu on a Pre-Installed Windows 8 (64-bit) System (UEFI Supported)
@Hellreaver excellent answer and thanks for the comment, but up to 14.10, there are still specific cases where this question still is relevant. I REALLY wish your answer would be THE ONE, since that would save me a lot of hassle. BTW +1 for the answer and letting me know another Ubuntu user is playing around with the whole Windows 8 issues. Great work.

The bluetooth issue was probably fixed on a later Kernel version after 14.04. You might want to risk it if the BT is very important to you by using a mainline kernel version for ubuntu (type ubuntu kernel in google).

comment Black Screen with cursor - Booting from HardDisk & LiveCD
I would take the motherboard out (take the RAM out of it, CPU and battery which I am guessing it is a CR2032 battery). After removing everything from the motherboard and taking it out of the case, wash it down with water (No need for soap), pressured water so you can get inside every slot, every place of the motherboard and let it dry for 2-3 days (Recommended 3 days the first time if you have never done this before). After 3 days, you can connected everything to it but only connect the battery/ram/cpu and test with a liveusb. The add the hdd. Then add the PCI video card. Please let me know.

comment Black Screen with cursor - Booting from HardDisk & LiveCD
I see you have extensively tried to find the issue (Very few do it so methodologically so kudos). I would test without a hard drive, only RAM and MOBO/CPU. Insert a LiveUSB and run Memtest, let it run for 1 full pass, then go to the Live Ubuntu and play around with it (Internet, office, sound, terminal commands like lshw, lspci, etc..) For like an hour to make sure it is not the motherboard. Just in case you feel it is the motherboard (Because of lack of maintenance for example), my way of solving this is mentioned on the comment below because am out of characters ^^

Also happening with a Qualcomm Atheros and a Broadcom b4313 so I do not think this is limited to the Intel. The procedure is basically the same. Connect a bluetooth speaker (In my case I tried the Samsung Bluetooth earphone) and after that, the whole Network Manager started having problems. Between failed connections and not offering an option to connect there is some relation between the bluetooth and the wireless here I would think.
