    I have just bought a new laptop Samsung 300E with Windows 8 installed. As I hate Windows I wanted to get rid of it and install Linux Mint 14 via CD as I have done earlier with other older windows computers. But every try to install Linux fails, as Windows always starts instead of the CD image. I have changed the boot preference to CD, but it doesn't help. How can I get rid of that pesky Windows or at least be able to have Linux as alternative by booting?

    These instructions apply to Ubuntu, but will work on Linux Mint (which is built on Ubuntu): Installing over UEFI
