After installing a Linux distro (Fedora 19, to be exact) on a Windows 8 machine I got the message:

No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.

What did I do wrong?


Turned out the problem was that I had tried to install a 32 bit version of Linux. When installing on an x86 system with Secure Boot (UEFI) a 64 bit version of Linux is needed.
