I already tried to with install Ubuntu 13.10 on my Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite with the UEFI and CMS OS option in the BIOS, but I still have the same problem. I'm trying to install Ubuntu 13.10 from a USB drive. The Grub menu appears, so when I click on the first or second options, in both cases I see the startup screen, and then the screen turns off and nothing happens after that.

What else do I need to do?
