[Bug 1129524] Re: [MSI GT70 0NC] Precise & Quantal won't boot in UEFI


I'm trying to get raring installed on my MSI gt70 OND-489NE, and I am
seeing the exact same symptoms. I have updated my BIOS from the above
mentioned download site, but to no avail. I still have not actually
installed anything on my hard disks, but I need to get there soon, if I
want to check the functioning of the system before my initial warranty
runs out.

I'll boot into legacy live mode and try the command mentioned in #50. Do
you also wish me to do a complete apport too.
