Trying to boot into the 12.10 live installation from a USB stick on ASUS Zenbook Prime UX32VD. After GRUB it just shows a blank screen. It's an UEFI system, so from the boot manager I picked UEFI: USB DISK PMAP and as advised in here, changed the splash parameter to nomodeset. So the parameters are:

setparams 'Try Ubuntu without installing'

    set gfxpayload=keep
    linux   /casper/vmlinuz.efi.signed  file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet nomodeset --
    initrd  /casper/initrd.lz

I've already tried re-creating the USB stick, removing the quiet parameter and not changing the splash parameter, but neither of those made a difference.


Check that you disable the Secure Boot as well as Fast Boot as stated in the UEFI part of the documentation.
