Unfortunately (as at the time of writing), even the latest development Linux kernel (3.14-rc5) lacks some key hardware support for Baytrail tablets.
Once there, disable Secure Boot, then visit the boot options, and ensure the USB stick is the first in the list.
Press F10 to save settings, and after a few seconds you will be in the GRUB bootloader. This will reboot the computer again, but this time you will have the laptop’s native resolution (rather than being stuck at 800×600 from the “bios”).
In the GRUB menu, highlight “Try Ubuntu”, and press “e” to edit it.
In the editing screen, scroll down to the command line options, where it says “quiet splash”.

Unfortunately this can’t be auto-completed, so if you can’t remember your partition setup, you’ll need to try by trial and error. Then you need to specify the location of your initrd. However internal wifi on the T100 isn’t terribly reliable under Linux yet.We’ll also compile in a new experimental feature for accessing 32-bit EFI services from a 64-bit system, as we need that for tools like efibootmgr to work.Finally, we’ll pull in the latest wireless fixes and the latest power management changes.In addition to the EFI partition, I prefer separate /, /home and /boot mount points; but that is up to you. We’ll need to compile our own bootia32to use with Grub. So we’ll boot manually, fix up wireless, and fix Grub.You could squish down the Windows partition and created the additional partition(s), or just delete the Windows partition altogether if you don’t need it. Boot back to the Grub welcome screen on the USB stick. You’ll need to provide Grub with the path to your kernel and initrd to boot.Delete “splash” and replace it with: Then press F10 to boot. Click the “Install Ubuntu” desktop icon to install Ubuntu permanently.
