I have a problem. I'm trying to install Linux Mint on my laptop.

I tried everything to install it in UEFI mode from disk but it wont start; it always says "reading error."

Then I tried with a USB. Everything goes well till the moment when it says "installation cannot continue: Grub loader can't be installed."

What should I do to install Linux Mint, and have dual boot when my computer starts?

I solve the mistery. For anyone who is dealing with the same problem, there is no way to install Linux Mint on this lap top except to install Linux and Windows 8 in legacy mode, hp developed strong security on this kind of lap top. –  Vesko Vujovic Jan 31 at 14:38
