You must disable secure boot, fast boot, enable CSM, and disable PXEoprom.

Then you boot your USB without UEFI, but IMPORTANT, push ENTER, and with F6 select NOMODESET.

Remember to delete all the partitions and GPT, then create a MBR table on the disk.

Install with MBR table.

After Install, use Software Center to activate propietarie driver ATI

Thats All

Tested with xubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 14.04

Linux distributions are totally uselesess on this laptop. The installation is fine, but when the system restarts I always meet a black screen. I said ok, and then I tried running it through Live CD. It didn't work either. Linux system doesn't like the videcard of the laptop, that's why it doesn't boot.

I tried only Debian systems: Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Linux Mint, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Debian. The symptoms are the same.
