I seem to have run into some difficulties trying to install Linux alongside my USB. I made a bootable USB stick and done all the UEFI firmware settings from which I disabled fast boot.

Now when I run my USB from the boot menu, the first screen shown is the options for Linux: "try it for free", "install Ubuntu" and so on.

Regardless of the option I choose, the screen just goes blank and that's it.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Which version of Linux? Sometimes you've got to set nomodeset option to get the graphics driver to work, depending on the hardware. – Ash Feb 25 '14 at 10:53

Upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10 fixed the problem for me.
