This question already has an answer here:
I have just wiped windows 8 from my samsumg series 9 by installing Ubuntu 12 64 bit over it through usb.
I have fast bios mode disabled and os mode selection set to csm os and the boot usb removed from the laptop after installation.
When reboot from hard disk, I have 4 choices (grub version 1.99-21ubuntu3.9)
- ubuntu, with linux 3.5.0-23-generic
- ubuntu, with linux 3.5.0-23-generic (recovery mode)
- memory test (memtest86+)
- memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)
I picked 1 and screen turned black with a cursor flashing. note that I am not having a dual boot machine. I am stuck at this screen, please somebody help, I really don't want to revert back to windows.
