    Ubuntu and Windows 8 preview are giving me grief on my new MBA. I use Windows 7 Bootcamp to feed one VM, and have a couple of others for WinXP. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 from scratch and that worked, but when I attempt to upgrade to 11.10 it just boots to the grub menu and any choice from that menu results in a reboot. If I choose "previous versions" and choose one from there, it works.

    The Windows 8 preview downloaded, but goes into an infinite reboot loop. I've updated Parallels to the latest version.

    Any ideas?

    Hi - just to confirm I also have the same issue with Windows 8 on my Macbook Air 2012...

    When I install it just goes into a reboot loop..

    Windows 7 though is working fine through Parallels on this new Macbook Air.
