I said last week, after posting galleries for installing openSuSE 12.3 and Fedora 18 with UEFI Boot, that I would do the same with Ubuntu when it got a little closer to the final release. It is now one week until the release, so I suppose it is time.
The following installation was done using the Raring Ringtail Daily Build for April 17, 2013.
Of course, it is possible that some things might still change in the week before the release, but as time gets shorter, that gets increasingly unlikely — still, my point is there is no guarantee that any particular part, feature, or bug discussed here will still be the same in the final release.
The Ubuntu Live ISO image includes UEFI Secure Boot compatibility. When you boot it, you can choose between going directly into the installer (ubiquity) or going to a live desktop. If you choose the latter, there is then an icon on the desktop to start the installer.
The first screen in the installer has the language select, and a whole lot of empty space. I find this a bit baffling, why not fill that space with something, even if it is only Ubuntu propoganda? Seems like a waste to me, but perhaps there is a reason for it.
