I need someone who is trained in the arts of Ubuntu.
I am trying to install Ubuntu on a secondary HDD I picked up, and I am having difficult times.
I have the AsRock Z77 Extreme4 motherboard, and I believe that may be the problem.
HOWEVER, it may also be my video card (GTX 770) or a combination of the two.
I have been searching the interwebs for hours trying to locate a fix for this.
Apparently it is very difficult to install Ubuntu (or any Linux distro for that matter) onto an HDD that is connected to a UEFI motherboard. I have no idea how to get around this and am very confused. Any insight into the matter would be greatly appreciated!
Also I will reiterate a couple details:
-Trying to install Ubuntu 12.10.
-I have an AsRock Z77 Extreme4 MOBO, which happens to be a UEFI MOBO.
-My video card is an EVGA Geforce GTX 770.
-When I attempt to install using WUBI, I encounter one of two errors when switching between the different install methods:
1. I get a black screen with a purple line on the left side and a command line type of screen but no commands execute.
2. I get a completely black screen, and a command line interface. Dozens of commands execute, but it hangs on a command that says "switched to clocksource tsc" then continues. It finally stops execution at the following command: "ata8: hard resetting link".
Before you suggest it, hard drive failure is not a problem, because I have tried it with multiple disks.
