New Windows PCs come with UEFI firmware and Secure Boot enabled. Secure Boot prevents operating systems from booting unless they’re signed by a key loaded into UEFI — out of the box, only Microsoft-signed software can boot.
A word of warning to all Samsung PC owners out there: booting Linux using UEFI will brick your PC!
As mentioned here at Anandtech, booting Linux on Samsung's UEFI causes a "partial brick" on your system. The reason why it's called "partial brick" because you can bring the computer back to its workable state by removing the CMOS battery which in turn clears the NVRAM corruption caused by the attempt to boot Linux from Samsung's UEFI.
I suggest that the author add this information I've gathered from Anandtech if you don't want this site to be infested with angry Samsung users who've bricked their laptops because of Linux.
