This is the list of *grub* modules loaded. samsung-laptop is a *Linux*
module. The two are unrelated.
If the samsung-laptop module was loaded for you when booting via CSM, it
will also be loaded when booting via UEFI, and there's a very good chance
that it will brick your machine when this happens.
So I do not recommend installing Ubuntu on this system using anything
*except* CSM unless you are willing to help test our fix which /could be
wrong and could still result in a bricked machine/; in that case you can
