Note: I am posting here because unfortunately nobody was able to help me in forums.partedmagic.com! Maybe somebody on this forum ran into the same problem and knows a solution.

I am using Parted Magic 2012_11_30 (64-bit). I have an ASUS G75VW notebook with 12GB DDR3 memory, a Core i7-3610QM 2.3 GHz CPU, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M video card, and a Blue-ray DVD-RW.

I burned Parted Magic on a DVD and tried booting up using options 1 through 4 offered by Parted Magic's initial screen. The result is that it always hangs somewhere and never finished booting up. I know that the DVD is good because I can use it without any problems on two other desktop computers that I have. So there must be some incompatibility between the ASUS notebook (hardware or BIOS?) and Parted Magic (Linux kernel?).

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get around this problem?

I wonder if it has something to do with GPT and UEFI?

I've never tried partedmagic on newer PCs yet

Has anyone tried to install Linux on this notebook and run into problems?

Why are you trying to partition the drives that way? A better method is to use the Windows partitioning tools, they are simpler and eliminate the problems. LINUX should run fine, though since I don't own that computer I cannot say.
