First of all the hardware :
- Core i5 Ivy bridge 3210M 2.5Ghz
- 6Gb RAM
- AMD Radeon HD 7650M
- 750Gb HDD
With Windows 8 Single language 64bit preinstalled. And include UEFI and Secure Boot
Specific model number - SVE15128CNS
Problem : I am trying to "try ubuntu without install" with a live USB on my laptop, but I was unable to. I ended up getting a blank splashing screen with nothing on it, which forces me to shut down using power button.
nomodeset but still nothing. I could not reach the graphical interface or a good terminal where I can do something useful. I have tried with secure boot disabled, but couldn't change UEFI to legacy as windows 8 is pre-installed. I have tried with the following operating systems:
- Ubuntu 12.04
- Ubuntu 13.04
- xubuntu 12.04
How can I try Ubuntu without installing it on my machine?
