View Full Version : Ubuntu 18.04LTS will not boot on Samsung Laptop but 16.04 will boot and install

I got a Samsung Laptop(NoteBook 7 Spin with an AMD Ryzen Quad Core Processor) that has Windows installed on the SSD. I put in a HDD because I don't use Windows much and intend to install the latest version of Ubuntu on it. I can't get a live session of Ubuntu 18.04LTS to even boot on it. It simply boots into Windows. I was able to get a live session of 16.04LTS to boot into the live session and was also able to install it. 16.04LTS doesn't seem to be responsive of the mouse or touchscreen, but the keyboard does work so I can get to the command line.

Is there any reason that 18.04LTS will not boot? I did try with a disc and USB drive, and also tested both on another laptop where they worked.
