In prebuilt windows 8.1 i want to install fedora 20 in it as a dual boot. my system has uefi and i cannot change my secure boot into legacy boot as the option in boot menu is locked. i used a live usb for fedora installation and found that when i run "start fedora" link it says "error loading kernel (some thing written etc) "and the screen goes blank. when i used the same usb for a windows xp it worked. please help me to resolve this issue. P.S. i am not an expert user of linux...

well im not a data wizard, but maybe try 1)removing your hard drive from your computer.

2.) power on computer F12 boot from USB

3.) VERY quickly slide the harddrive back into the connectors while linux is booting so it can recognize that you have a harddrive becuaze i think it scans for that one of the first thigns it does i think

thats my 2cent
