I would be grateful for some help with the following. I have had for a
year or so a Samsung 64-bit X102B Notebook, which came with Windoze 8
and UEFI. It is a very nice machine, light, good battery life etc, but
Windoze 8 is so crap. Every so often a Windoze update starts Service
Host or some other similar bit of software to mop up CPU usage, and I
have, by trial and error, find out which update caused this, and
uninstall it. A previous notebook I had with lower spec just raced
along with either Windoze 7 or Ubuntu etc, but I have not succeeded in
getting this new one multibooted.
It seems that the latest Ubuntu 14.10 distributed with Linux Format cuts
most UEFI systems and installs a sensible bootloader. I would then be away.
Please will someone give me some dead easy instructions to create a USB
stick with the appropriate Ubuntu installation files from the Linux
Format DVD. I can do this on my Ubuntu Desk top. I don't find trawling
the web for ideas very helpful. At least if I knew I had a reliable
installation USB stick, I could start hacking the UEFI with some confidence.
Any help most gratefully received - Roger.
P.S. I must come along sometime.
