Although Ubuntu 12.10 had already came out, since 12.04 is a LTS release and I didn’t post my installation guide at the time, I decided to document my take on it. Also, I had bought a new computer at the time (Asus M5A99X board) and had to consider EFI and my new SSD drive. Hardware considerations Comparing this install with my previous ones, I had two new things to consider: a EFI motherboard and a SSD drive.
