empty security header Grub error - fresh usb install on new computer build

I am trying to install Linux mint via my usb thumbdrive but when I choose "Start Linux" from the Grub menu, I get an "Empty security header" message and then it goes to the linux mint live area. How do I start the live linux mint without this message?

I solved the "empty header issue" by changing the "Windows UEFI" thingie to "Other OS" in UEFI.

But I still can't get Mint to work right. When I install it and then try to eject the thumbdrive it won't allow me. It just restarts itself right back to the installer. This is not a good start for me regarding Mint. I may have to resort to something else. So much for an easy install...


Nevermind, I decided to use Windows 8.
