I have an Intel NUC like box with me (exactly this thing: http://b2b.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5445#ov) and trying to get Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installed on it, but for some magical reason it just won't work. It has a 32GB built-in eMMC flash storage and every time I boot the live usb with UEFI and get to the installer it goes fine till a point and I get an input/output error message for some unknown reason or a read-only error for the /target which makes not much sense to me. Once booting the live usb without UEFI can install it, but can't install the UEFI partition not even with boot-repair so can't boot it... argh
Has anybody had any experience installing Ubuntu on eMMC flash? Is there any trick?
