Any tips/links on how to configure Ubuntu to use the 16gig ssd for quick boot and the 500gig hdd for main?
Nope sorry, my one doesn’t have an SSD in it However I guess this might help http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/05/04/manual-disk-partitioning-guide-for-ubuntu-11-04/
You must have the 14″ one. The 13″ one comes with two drives – a small ssd for fast boot and a larger hdd for regular use (and to keep the price low).
Thanks for the article! Seems I should be mounting the /boot and / on ssd and the rest on hdd.
P.S.: On a 14″ notebook, any reason for choosing the Series 5 over Dell 14z? (I’ll be running Ubuntu)
I’ve installed mine with /boot and swap pointing to the iSSD part of the disk, which makes it boot reasonably fast and still stays fast when memory starts swapping on high load.
Sorry have’t looked at the Dell 14z, just know that I am very happy with the Series 5:)
Thanks! Ordered the 13″ Series 5 🙂
Hey, I’m trying get into ubuntu so I decide to install it in my samsung series 5, but the thing is I can’t.
I tried to install it through usb but the bios didn’t recognize, tried with sd card, the bios didn’t recognized either. How did you do it? Sorry for my bad english, greetings from Brazil.
Yeah unfortunately I couldn’t get this to work either so I had to burn a CD with Ubuntu on it (luckily the Series 5 has a DVD burner!)
Hope this helps 🙂
Disable the Fast BIOS feature, install from USB, and re-enable.
I could make installing ubuntu via USB
the solution to recognize the USB is the PC firmware update.
I worked with samsung series 5 ultrabook
No, it doesn’t! For the following reasons:
* battery life is poor, about 2h when watching a movie (with special grub parameters set)
* no suspend after closing the lid
* bluetooth-transfer only works from laptop to my phone (android)
* display brightness doesn’t survive reboot
And a couple of issues which are probably hardware independent. I say it works not too bad but great doesn’t fit.
Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m inspired! Very useful info specially the remaining phase 🙂 I maintain such info a lot. I used to be seeking this particular information for a long time. Thanks and best of luck.
I just buy a Samsung Series 5 Ulta (NP530U3) and when I boot with liveUSB and I shut down without install ubuntu I recibe a black screen and my laptop will not boot more.
Someone with the same laptop has installed dual boot (Ubuntu 12.04 and Win 7)? I have pre-installed Win 7.
If this is so could let me how to do it?
Try asking here http://askubuntu.com/ for help
There is an option in the Bios that prevent Executing programs to modify memory (I don’t remember what it called) Just disable it and it will boot any live CD or Hirens tools.
wow did you manage to install the graphic drivers correctly?
