Successfully able to install and start Ubuntu 16.04 on the MP30-AR0

1) After starting the installer using UEFI shell command
FS1:\EFI\BOOT\BOOTAA64.EFI, select 'Install' menu item and click 'e' to
invoke the Grub editor
2) Change the Grub menu entry:
linux /linux acpi=off clk_ignore_unused console=ttyS0,115200 --- quiet clk_ignore_unused console=ttyS0,115200
3) Type Ctrl-X to boot the kernel and start the installation process
4) After the installation completes, reboot the system. Now UEFI should
automatically boot the kernel, and after a few error messages, the
familiar Linux logon prompt should appear
