I was wondering if anyone had had any luck with installing ubuntu 12.04 on samsung series 5 ultra? The thing is that I want to install root on the SSD for fast boot (along with windows7)... if anyone has done this please tell me how.

I've done it with 12.10 and 13.04, but the results are horrendous. Check it out here. This dude says he's got it, but I wasn't able to duplicate his success. – sostacked Feb 25 '13 at 20:34

** HDD

The number is 9 because I using dual boot.

When you will configure your disk you have to create a partition with 10MB for "Boot Bios"
