I know that my disc was good cuz my other computer recognized it as one.
and to get into windows 8 you will need to enable secure boot may be..

I'm using a dvd, but I can use either.

Currently I enabled secure boot after my last attempt failed.

Ok I'm woking on the universal usb installer now. Hopefully this will work.

I won't be able to get to far this evening however I'll try to get back to it tomorrow.

Will I still need to change the secure boot?

Ok, I disabled Secure Boot.

Can you tell me how to change the boot order and how to partition?

Thanks so much.

See for taking boot from usb either on startup select boot menu and select usb.. or else go to bios settings.. in boot and change the boot order/sequence..
now to install ubuntu along with win8 u will need a separate partition. So go in control panel of windows 8. View by Large or Small Icons. Then go in Administrative tools. Double click on Computer Management. Then go into storage. Then in Disk Manager. And from there you can make a seprate partition for ubuntu..

I did install that and partitioned my drive yet nothing happened. I'm sure I missed something there.

When I read everyone says, "Just restart your computer and it will work. Problem is... my computer doesn't even recognize the usb or disc.
