Kubuntu 12.04.2 works really well once its runnig, BUT thing is: grub will not install itself in this notebook. It just don't work. Up to now I'm not abble to boot my notebook in the proper way. In order to boot the kubuntu that I have installed I have to use a live cd (garted). Also, windows won't boot anymore. A lot of google searching and I found no help either. (

Zorin OS 9 is best for Asus K45A i3, 4 GB RAM, 750 HDD.
