You can enter any specific notes with running Linux on the Samsung NP550P5C here.
Have to disable Secure Boot and switch to CSM Mode. UEFI Bug. I just talked to Samsung Support
UEFI Firmware Update is expected to be released soon. Installation with Debian 7 RC1 Installer
works ok. I accidently deleted the EFI Boot Partition and always get the error Message that
no boot device can be found. One can boot the System by hitting F4 Key while the Samsung Logo
is displayed. Hit F2 Key to get to the UEFI Settings Menu (while the Samsung Logo is displayed).

First quick look it works ok with Debian 7 RC1. Will wait for the UEFI Update and try again
with UEFI enabled.
