I bought a satellite c55d-a5170 laptop with win 8.1. needless to say windows sucked so I tried to load ubuntu 13.10. I went into the setup and set it to cms boot instead of eufi. To boot like a bios system. before and after this setting change it would start to boot to the cd and then give a message, something about halting cpu something. It went so fast I could not get it. simply halt and sit at a black screen. After setting it to cms boot I would get the little divinci man logo of the boot cd but it would still halt at the same point.
I can't get it to boot to the disk to install, much less get through the install.
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
