I just installed an ssd in my laptop and had to go with Arch Linux because I
couldn't install the newest version of opensuse. But in the process of
installing, I learned something that could be useful to you. First of all,
neither the newest version of arch or opensuse could boot in uefi mode. Both
of the iso's worked fine in CSM mode though. Also, opensuse coughed up an
error message on the failed boots saying /efi/boot/x86-84-efi/linux.mod and
/efi/boot/x86-84-efi/ls.mod weren't found. So I can no longer boot linux in
general unless it's in csm mode.

Hey Matt,

does the above ring any bells?


Not exactly. It sounds like something is buggy in the firmware is files are
missing in the ISO.

Brian, if you want to install in UEFI mode I'd suggest performing a factory
reset of the machine (if you're happy to do that) and making sure you've got
any available BIOS updates installed.
