I've registered to this forum, as there doesn't seem to have any official Forum on Samsung's website. And this website seems to be the biggest Samsung Community.
I have purchased a Samsung n210 a few days ago, and I realized that it doesn't like to boot in other circumstances than a "regular" boot.
Let me explain:
I have installed WindowsXP SP3 and Ubuntu; a dual boot. When I power up my computer, I select the OS I want to boot on. If the selected OS is different than the one I have previously booted on, the computer will restart and I have to make my choice again. It's only after this, that the computer will be okay to boot. This happens no matter which OS I choose. But as I mentioned above, if I boot on the same OS than on the last usage, it will work perfectly.
Also, with WindowsXP SP3 installed solely, if I decide to boot on a USB Key with Ubuntu on it, the notebook will behave the same way.
So what I have learned from this is that it's definitely not an installation error. Also, I have a dell desktop configured the exact same way and works perfectly.
I took my notebook through some CPU stress test and the MemTest (with 2 passes), and no error came up.
Does anyone have an idea as to why my computer acts like this? Why doesn't my notebook like to boot on a different OS than previously?
I really hope someone will be able to help me, as Samsung's Help Center wasn't very useful.
Thank you in advance,
