Ubuntu Mate and Windows 8.1 on Intel Nuc

Hello guys,

I need your help. My first attempt to install Linux didn’t go well :). I have Braswell Pentium Nuc with Windows 8.1 that is installed in UEFI mode. After i click on Try Ubuntu or Install Ubuntu (UEFI mode) i get Ubuntu Mate logo and after few seconds installation stops. Any idea what to do.
Both Os are 64. Ubuntu Mate is 15.10
I read Installing Ubuntu in UEFI mode Guide but didn’t find solution.

Thank you


see the UEFI links in the complete install guide!:

Links are as follows:

Post back if you have trouble!. :smiley:

Thank you wolfman. The problem was that you have to select Linux as an OS in Intel bios. Now everything is all right.
