any ides????
can smart be reset anyone know where some smart info is.
also it complaigns about the disc geom like the xp bug but I can still boot windows


Well , you cant reset the SMART info... The thing is: Linux is more sensitive to this kind of problem... Windows isnt... I've had a SATA disk which would freeze linux but in windows it worked perfectly... Guess what? The disk was broken....
Try looking in the samsung website.. Usually the manufacturer has a tool to check the disk. It's the best way to find out if the disk is really problematic...
