    Can't Install Ubuntu from USB on Samsung Series 7 Chronos


    So I downloaded the ISO and burned it via unetbootin.
    I go into bios and change the following settings:
    disable fast boot, and make the OS selection CMS make USB boot first
    Then when i boot, it just boots back to windows 8. I also noticed that once I reboot back into bios, the USB is not set to first boot as I set it initially.


    By the way I have a Samsung Series 7 Chronos with nividia graphics.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    As far as I know, Ubuntu 64 bit supports efi and secure boot.
