Ubuntu on 710S-13IKB IdeaPad laptop

2017-03-18, 6:39 AM

I got new Ideapad 710S-13IKB and trying to run Ubuntu on it. Unfortunatly Ubuntu not finds SSD disc and can't install itself when I run it from USB storage. I found that Lenovo has released BIOS that supports Linux. There some BIOS releases in Lenovo site:

enter image description here

My current BIOS version is 3HCN14WW. According to logic it might be newer sine 14>13 and I afraid to update bios from site. How to know exactly which bios version is newer?

 

Besides that there is "Linux only" BIOS. I need dualboot Win10/Linux. Will "Linux Only" allow me do this?

How to get Linux on this machine?
