This question is weird. The only Linux distribution working on my MSI GE60 with windows 8 and Uefi is Arch. I cannot install other distributions because I get a black screen on install.
My problem is how to install arch on Uefi without destroying anything, and how to manage a later upgrade of arch to Ubuntu. I know most people go from Ubuntu to Arch. But Arch is my only way to install Linux. And I think if i can install Arch there is a way to install Ubuntu on it.
I tried to solve my problem using this faq http://askubuntu.com/questions/162075/my-computer-boots-to-a-black-screen-what-options-do-i-have-to-fix-it But it doesnt work for me.
