I just bought a HP pavilion hpe H9 phoenix (i7, 8gb ram, 126 ssd & 2x500gb sata) and wanted to install Ubuntu 12.04 on it.
But the computer seemed to be uefi protected. So I turned this feature off in the bios. Then I succeeded to enter the conf menu in the live usb/cd mode (set language with F2, keyboard layout with F3, etc). I then launched the option to try Ubuntu without installing, but nothing happened: just a black screen.
Is it due to the uefi/efi protection? Is this tower motherboard protected?
Does anyone have an idea about how to install any 'buntu on this tower or any uefi protected PC?
It is the first time something like this happend to me… I think I went through 100 of 'buntu installations before. I can't "live" without it…
