I am having hp pavilion g6 2320tx with windows 8 preinstalled with the UEFI mode
I am trying to install ubuntu alongside Windows 8 but it fails every time giving me the error that grub2 was not installed.
First please download this Word File where i have all the screenshots
Here Are the Steps i followed :-
I disabled Secure boot and disabled legacy mode(i have tried enabling legacy mode and installing ubuntu but that also failed!). Here is Screenshot of the BOOT OPTION of my laptop before i attempt to install

After this i restart and started ubuntu from usb flashdrive (live boot).But Before getting into ubuntu it gives the below screen for just a flash of a second

This comes every time i did this procedure(i ignored this msg btw :P)
After Getting into Ubuntu i chose to install ubuntu and i created:
- a swap area of 4096 mb.
- a boot area of 500 mb.
- rest of space for ubuntu.
- This is my partition space.
