UEFI/Graphical Boot problems
I've just built a new PC.. with a MSI x79a-gd45 (8d) motherboard.
All the hardware seems to be running ok.
This is also the first time I have installed/had a UEFI PC.
First of all I tried booting a couple of my live cds to install a new system but none would boot.. after some research I found out they have to have the ability to boot in UEFI mode.
I downloaded the latest ubuntu (12.04) which is my least fave distro.. but would do for now.. and it booted to the grub menu for the live-cd.. but then when I try booting to the live demo or just install the screen goes black and I dont see anything else.. not even any kind of verbose or out of range messages...
any help would be appreciated.
I downloaded and burned the iso for 'Archboot' and again.. got it to boot but then I try to load any of the options from grub.. screen just goes black and I see no more..
I am guessing it might be some graphics card driver issue... it's an nvidia card.. usually never have any trouble with them... but I still get no message on the screen telling me anything.
