[Discuss] UEFI

Eric, i remember reading about this when i was about to purchase a netbook i wanted from the store but it only came in windows 8.? so i opted for ordering the version that ccame installed with ubuntu.? was an asus 1015E, nice to have all he features of the computer working with the linux instead of hunting for drivers i guess...

good luck.

the computer is ok i guess except the mouse pad and clickers suck and the os keeps forgetting about my sd card every time i resume.? but it's light, has good battery life and i can read it outside so i'm happy.

Anybody have to deal with UEFI and Intel Rapid Storage Technology?
I've tried just about every option available in the bios but have been
unable to get any popular distro to see the 500gb or the 32gb drive.
Everything else appears to work off a live dvd.? Win8 seems to only
show the 500gb drive and uses the 32gb silently.? Since Win8 is
horrible I really would like to get xubuntu running on it.? Anybody
overcome this?
