Samsung Galaxy Book Go - Linux

Hi everybody, 

i bought the Galaxy Book Go (NP345XLA-KB2BE) with 4 gb of ram. however, when I bought it I didn't check the amount of ram and as you can expect it's really limited to run windows 11. Therefore, I'm trying to install a light distribution of Linux like Xubuntu. Somehow I can't boot on a usb. When I press F10 on boot, the different options I have are 

- Windows Boot Manager
- UEFI: Hard Drive
- Enter Microsoft Recovery
- Enter QR Mode
 and when I'm in the bios, I get the 2 first options.

Am I missing something? how can I boot on a usb stick to be able to test a linux distribution on livecd?

Many thanks for your help.

Look, you should be able to come up with an answer to your question, however, to help you out a bit, do look into what an ARM64 processor is. Your notebook came out of factory with this processor design.
Doing this will give you a hint as to why you can't boot a linux OS from your Samsung Galaxy Go.

I own a Samsung Go as well and trust me, many of us are looking for ways to make this happen.
In the meantime, do your research.
