This does not at all describe the issue at hand. An upgrade would not cause
an Ubuntu system to start using UEFI where it didn't before, and the problem
here is already present when booting 12.04 in UEFI mode on an affected
Samsung system. While it's possible a bug left you with a non-booting
system on upgrade, it's unlikely that the upgrade bricked your laptop - to
"brick" the laptop means that the hardware can no longer boot *any* OS, not
just that your current install is non-bootable.
Either way, this is unrelated to the present bug report and you should file
a separate bug.
