Ubuntu – Unable to boot from a USB drive on Samsung Series 9 notebook



Ubuntu 12.04 won't boot on Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A (ssd hard-drive)

I'm trying to get rid of Windows but I can't boot from USB because the USB slots on the right (USB 3.0) on the Samsung Series 9 doesn't recognize my USB stick.

I tried downloading the USB drivers from the Samsung site and installing them from the Windows partition, but still no luck.

Any ideas how I can get the USB slots working and get rid of Windows?

  • The problem is that Samsung has a fast boot option, hence it ignores changes to the BIOS boot priority. To disable this, use Easy Settings application to get rid of the fast boot option and boot from USB.
