I have a Samsung XE500T1C-A01AU, I was wondering, If and how I could install Ubuntu on it while keeping Windows 8 installed, as it only has a 32 bit processor and it has UEFI instead of BIOS. Thanks EDIT: I wasn't specific enough, I want to install it along side Windows 8, I have tried so many different things but it the installer wont boot from usb. Sorry I'm not very good with OS's, I have secure boot off.. Thanks

Is secure boot enabled? If yes then I don't think its possible as there are no suitably signed 32-bit versions of Ubuntu. Also take a look at this question There is a firmware issue with some Samsung laptops so it may not be safe. –  Warren Hill Mar 21 '13 at 12:22
@Luis Alvarado are you sure this is a duplicate? OP specifically wants 32-bit and all answers given use 64-bit –  Warren Hill Mar 22 '13 at 7:19
@WarrenHill Good catch. Will leave it open for 32 bit cases, but it would be better to add the 32bit answer in the other question to centralize all UEFI + Ubuntu questions there. –  Luis Alvarado Mar 22 '13 at 12:43
