    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

    So I tried again today with fedora 21 server and the usb booted and I installed a uefi fedora 21 sucessfully. I set secure boot to "other os". Funnily enough it can't be disabled in the menu (non active button). That worked for installation. Then I rebooted and ........... blank screen no output whatsoever.

    Can it be my graphics card? or perhaps I should try and do a non efi fedora?

    NVidia GTX 750 is the graphics card


    thanks
