Dell-Inspiron 17 7000, RAM 16Gb, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2GB DDR5 + Ubuntu12.04.4


I just purchased Dell-Inspiron 17 7000, i7, RAM 16Gb, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2GB DDR5 and want to install Ubuntu 12.04.4 as a dual boot with window 8.1.

Before to install Ubuntu, is their any body who installed Ubuntu-12 on this machine and what was his experience. What about the GPU, does it work? is their any simple flow of Ubuntu installation for this machine?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks kareempharmacist,

I did installed 14.04 and its working fine!

But Im facing a new problem!
When I shutdown my system while using Ubuntu 14.04 it sent me back to Grub loader to select the operating system to login.
This cycle continues if I login again Ubuntu but Im successfully shutdown my system if i Select window from the Grub menu and then
select the shutdown option.

do you have any idea how can i properly shutdown my system from Ubuntu?

Again thanks for you suggest!
