Hello everyboy and have a nice 2010!
I’m new to your side , have gotten a new N140 and am running into problems.
I don’t like the win7 starter and don’t want to buy a higher version.So would like to add a second OS to the N140.
I managed to burn a bootable usb stick but when i want to start by this it is not recognized.This way I looked to the bios but ( Version 03CU) couldn’t find where to set the boot possibilities.
Does anybody now if there is a hidden item where i can set booting from usb.
I burned a SD-card as well , it wasn’t recognized.
How can I mount my linux to the N140, I don’t want to take it in parts connect the harddisk to my desktop add the OS and rebuild everything.
Will an external usb-cddrive be recognized at boot up?
Regards and pegging for help

genpop – Welcome to the forum
In the bios select the boot menu and press return.
The use F5/F6 to move USB HDD to top of boot priority list.
Press F10 to save and exit.
Hope this helpsJanuary 2, 2010 at 12:26 pm #208557
that would have been easy and that was my idea too
but i can’t find this option.Thats why i metioned my bios version.Is there an additional hidden option and how can i activate this?

genpop – Go to the Boot tab, are you saying you don’t have that in your bios?January 2, 2010 at 1:25 pm #208554
genpop – The Boot bios screen example from the Boot tab

i’m sorry i don’t have this option.Meanwhile I found a bios 04cu and mounted this but these options are missing to.Which bios version is yours and where can i get it ( ok I google it) .How can I upload a picture here, i would show you my boot section.

you are right, i have found it just now.It is a submenue from boot section. I could select it by pressing return directly on the boot section.Just like you told me I read it but didn’t understand 🙂
Thank you very much,it sometimes needs a small ping and you find the solution yourself:-)

genpop – Your welcome and glad it’s all sorted now.
I have to say that the sub menu is not that obvious and Samsung could perhaps do a better job with the menu system to make the option clearer 🙂January 3, 2010 at 3:35 am #208556DagoDivaMember
so did it work? i’m thinking of trying out jolicloud….January 3, 2010 at 1:02 pm #208560
yes it worked,I could mount my kanotix-version without further problems.
But grub mounted my the recovery system as an own system and i can’t find the /grub/menu.lst where I normally configure my boot screen and my wireless lan will not connect correctly even i installed this realtec driver mentioned in the main section of this forum.

That discussion is old, the machine too… and me more and more (77) !
I cloned the disk of my N140 withe AOEMEI Backupper. I set in the bios the boot order as said in that discussion.
The boot is done on the external hdd and I see the Microsoft Corporation screen immediatly followed by an error blue screen
I run the chkdsk : no bad sectors. I run an antivirus on the original too : nothing bad !
Is someone able to help me ? Thanks a lot !
my english is not sure because I’m french
