I just upgraded to 12.10 and I'm having considerable boot problems on my Samsung Series 9 900x3c. Most of the time nothing happens and a hard reboot has to be done. Every couple of times the Laptop actually boots but it still seems to be quite volatile as Kernel panics occur quite often. Any ideas how to fix these issues?

Thanks a lot in advance

Best regards

Ok, it seems as if the old Kernel 3.2.0-31 still works without problems still I would like to be able to run the normally provided Kernel. Any ideas suggestions? – jothebo Oct 19 '12 at 19:38

It seems the problem originates from the UEFI implementation done by Samsung. I did a clean install of Ubuntu 12.10 64 Bit but deactivated UEFI before in the BIOS ever since then no problems.
