This question already has an answer here:
Thinking of buying a computer that comes with windows 8, but want to install Linux on it (Mint or Debian). I was wondering a few things:
Do most computers with windows 8 come with UEFI now - eg, Samsung laptops?
I heard that Microsoft may lock the UEFI so that other operating systems can't install. Is this the case?
I'm looking to do a clean install - so only have one operating system on the hard drive.
