Hello I'm running on a VAIO E Series, Windows 8 64-Bit OS my specs are:

CPU: Intel core i5-321M 2.50GHz
RAM: 4GB
System Model: SVE15125CXS
BIOS: R0150D5
Graphics Chip: Intel HD graphics 4000 1664MB

I've been trying (for about 3 days now) to install a Linux OS onto this computer via a USB flash drive with no success. Iv also looked up just about everything that is available online to try and help me with this problem (Forum posts, Blogs, Wikis, etc...) nothing iv found has helped me with this. Im trying to dual install Kubuntu with my Windows 8 so i can get into a daily routine of using an easy Linux OS to reach my goal of being able to use BackTrack without fumbling over the GUI like a moron.

Things Iv tried:
*Iv used multiple USB's from 1GB Patheons, 4GB Skatedrives, to 16GB TravelDrives. So i doubt the problem's with the USB drives. Plus i was able to download Ubuntu onto an older PC, But failed with the "No Operating system found" on this one.

*Iv used different kinds of USB mounters like unetbootin, Yumi, and Universal USB installer.

*Iv checked my boot menu and one of the options was boot from USB/CD, so i would imagine that it can run off a USB and yes i have removed all other USB drives and removed any CDs.

*Iv used different Linux Distros: ubuntu, Kubuntu Mint and backtrack, all with the same outcome.

I usually don't resort to begging on forums, instead would search for answers rather then asking but this is becoming a major pain and I'm to inexperienced enough to solve this on my own. Any and all help in resolving this problem would be greatly appreciated! If there is anymore information i can give to help resolve this problem just ask.
