    So I'm super frustrated.


    Ideally I want to get rid of my preloaded windows 8.1 and install fedora 20. I've seen plenty of threads discussing the problems but I thought since the newer fedora were licenced to be bootable with windows UEFI, it would work.

    I have my live usb with fedora.
    I reboot
    I choose the usb as the boot device in the UEFI menu
    screen goes blank as there is no signal, computer goes idle nothing, happens.

    Thought maybe its just a lot of processing, left it for 6 hours, no response.

    What am i doing wrong?

    I don't even want UEFI or care about it, I'm happy to format the disk and hopefully the Bios will let me install fedora but i would like some clear instruction/direction because i don't want to be stuck with a piece of hardware for a couple of k that has no firmware and i can't do anything with.

    Thanks,

    Conor
