Grrrr

Posted 11-08-2013 at 11:35 AM by zaivala

My netbook died. It was good, in that I could run Win7 (not bad), any Linux I wanted to (mostly Puppy/MacPup), and even came with a quickboot to ASUS' own version of Linux desktop.

So I bought a new ASUS (actually, two -- identical ones for myself and my fiance). The new machine, an X550CA, has UEFI on it and Windows 8 (now 8.1). I can't even get it to boot from the disk drive, the USB drives... some websites said that if I disabled QuickBoot I could get to "Legacy Boot"...
