I'm trying to dual boot my new Acer V5-122p with the pre-installed Windows 8 and Linux Mint 15 Mate. The laptop doesn't have a DVD drive, so I have to boot through USB. When I boot Mint in UEFI mode, the Mint logo appears as if it's going to work, but then it just goes to essentially a command line($) and gives me an error saying, "Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the x server output to diagnose the problem?" It basically ends telling me, "The x server is now disabled. Restart MDM when it is configured correctly." I thought this might be being caused by Secureboot, but I've disabled that and it still does the same thing. If I boot it in Legacy mode, then it works fine. Problem is, I have to install in UEFI mode, because that's how Windows 8 is installed. I've also tried booting it on another computer, then running all the updates to see if it would help and no luck there either. Compatibility mode also doesn't help. The command, startx, also does not work. It gives me an error saying, "no screens found" and "xinit:unable to connect to x server: Connection refused." I've also tried Ubuntu and Fedora, and the same thing happens.
I've really tried to figure this out myself, but I'm at the end of my abilities. Does anyone have any ideas or advice on how I should go from here?
