No matter what I tried, I can't seem to even get the bootloader to load. Always getting stuck on the spinning slash mark (-). P55 with i5 Mobo, set everything in the BIOS like the guides said. Even tried the USB patch for P55 boards - no chance. I can install Debian and Windows without any problems.

Any ideas?

Are you doing a retail install?

The slash means it is not reading your HDD. Make sure ACHI mode is on in the BIOS.

Yes, doing a retail install. AHCI mode is set in the BIOS.
