Install crash with beta 14.04.
No similar issue happened on this computer with previous ubuntu versions. 13.10 always installed normally and nothing changed in this PC.

I tried with english language, the same happens. "cannot find EFI directory". My SSD partition table is msdos, not GPT, but with GPT table, the same happens.
