hp 650 with windows 8
As the title says I have windows 8 installed on my HP 650 I would like to get rid of windows and go to a Linux o/s.
My problem is that I cannot get the laptop to boot a live DVD with a Linux o/s on it.
The uefi boot loader is not allowing me to use live dvd's I have tried changing the boot order to accommodate various scenarios including booting from a DVD or USB.
I have partial success with a Ubuntu DVD but finished up with a black screen.
Any assistance will be appreciated.
Turn off UEFI..
Go into your uefi BIOS and turn uefi boot off. When you have this uefi off you can install any Linux operating system.
