Crunchbang on Atom Z3775D Tablet??

Hey guys I've got a question. I have a work tablet, it's running the Atom z3775d dual core processor with x32 win 8. Now because it's a work tablet there isn't much I can do to it, but it's also managed out the wazoo. What I want to do is boot #! from a USB. It has a usb3 port and I have a 128gb usb3 drive. I think #! would fly! But I need some help. I know it has a UEFI bootloader and the bios doesn't seem to natively be able to boot from usb but the very win8 looking boot menu gives me the option to boot from removable media, and if I plug in my drive it pops up as an option. However everything I have tried from grub2win to EasyBCD nothing works. What am I missing? And is it possible? Any help/thoughts are very much appreciated.

Did you prepare the usb with the recommended method on the Downloads page?
How To prepare an ISO to USB - Linux & Windows Instructions

Did you check the md5sum of the download?

{PS It should really be in Help&Support wink )

You will need to disable "Secure Boot" and enable "CSM" or "Legacy" mode in your firmware ("BIOS") options to boot the #! installer and then it will only install in non-EFI mode.

Otherwise, to install a system that boots in EFI-mode, follow these steps:

Make 2 partitions on the stick: a 512MiB, FAT32 EFI system partition (type "ef00") and another (ext4?) partition for the rest of the filesystem.

Then use the Debian 7.7 netinstall*, make sure you select the FAT32 partition as the "EFI boot partition" during the installation process & follow this guide to #! it wink

AMD64 ~ i386
