1. Download install script
When Ubuntu has finished installing to your tablet, make sure the dialogue asking if you'd like to continue retesting or restart your PC is kept on-screen.
Now open the Firefox browser and navigate to http://bit.ly/grub32bit,which will redirect to a Google Drive download page.
Click 'Download' to save the linuxium-32bit-patch.sh to your Downloads folder.
2. Install the script
The linuxium-32bitpatch.sh file is a script that automates the process of installing the 32-bit version of the Grub 2 bootloader.
Now you'll need to press Ctrl+Alt+T and type the following commands:
$ cd Downloads
$ chmod 700 linuxium-32bit-patch.sh
$ sudo ./linuxium-32bit-patch.sh
3. Reboot PC
You'll see a series of packages are downloaded and installed automatically, which will basically allow your tablet's 32-bit UEFI to recognise the Grub bootloader, and allow Ubuntu to load automatically at startup.
Click the 'Restart Now' button to complete the process and wait while your PC reboots into Ubuntu proper for the first time.
