UEFI Workaround

Dear Klaus, Please help! I have done everything I can think of to install Linux on my 2013 touchscreen Asus Visiobook. I partitioned the hard drive, and I am using a Live USB, and I also installed the latest Linux kernel. When I reboot, I get the option to launch Ubuntu or Windows, but every time I try to choose Ubuntu, I am denied! Please help, I hate Windows 8. What can I do? Or, what didn't I do?

Sincerely, David
