[IDEAPAD 330S 15IKB] Dual Boot with Ubuntu

[What I did]

1- First, I changed the partition allocated to windows (created a new partition of 390GB for the Ubuntu) and left it unallocated (as attached).

2- Created a Bootable drive with my USB flash drive with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

3- I used F2 at boot <with the Ubuntu bootable memory stick in a USB port already> to access BIOS, then set legacy boot and legacy support. I enabled USB booting, disabled secure boot and changed the SATA to AHCI. I saved and rebooted. It booted from the USB into Ubuntu with installation option. It DID NOT detect Windows 10 or any partitions.

 

Has anyone installed succesfully any Linux distribution on this or simmilar model?  Am I missing somthing here?

 

Thanks,

Re: [IDEAPAD 330S 15IKB] Dual Boot with Ubuntu

Hi gpiazza,

 

Welcome to the community forums.

 

We checked the model of the device and can see it's not tested on Linux operating system. You may create a dual boot, but we cannot guarantee that all features will function properly. Here are the list of the tested devices to run using Linux OS (if the model of your device is not on the list, it means it's not tested):https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/pd031426 

 

About the Windows 10 not detected in any partitions, have you also tried turning off the fast startup? If you haven't, you may these steps from this article:https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht501793 If you don't do this, the Windows partition cannot be mounted by Linux to see that there is a Windows partition.

 

Keep us posted on how it goes.

Hello Ashley,

 

Inforntunetely it didn't work. The link you sent me was not working propoerly either ("The document you have requested is not available. You may have entered an incorrect URL or login with authorized credentials (for Lenovo Field Servicers and/or Call Center Agents only) to view the page."). But anyway, I will have to send the computer back to the retailer, because it does not support linux. If by any chance you have information about linux working on this model contact me asap.

 

Thanks,

Hey there, gpiazza! 

 

Another help here. As we were checking here, the Lenovo IdeaPad 330S 15IKB is not in the list of the Linux certified units. You may check the full information for the Linux certified unit here https://lnv.gy/2NzFSBr;

 

Regards!

Re: [IDEAPAD 330S 15IKB] Dual Boot with Ubuntu

For what it is worth I  have been running Ubuntu 18.4 LTS on my Ideapad 330S 15IKB since July with no major problems. Prior to this I was runing Ubuntu 16.4 on an older Toshiba laptop which finally gave up the ghost resulting in the purchase of the Ideapad. I have been playing with various flavors of Linux for a decade.

I felt I should add:

 

ALWAYS make a RECOVERY thumb drive of your Windows system (this is not the same as RESTORE) with every new Windows computer. From the Windows START type in RECOVERY and it will walk you through it.

Re: [IDEAPAD 330S 15IKB] Dual Boot with Ubuntu

Thanks for the BIOS info walkthrough in the this video.

That helped me to installed Ubuntu 19.04 from a USB onto my Ideapad 330S 15IKB without any problems.

So all is good there.

 

But now Windows 10 won't load.

Window auto repair ran for awhile but couldn't fix it.

BIOS is in RST mode.

Stroage is still in non-RAID mode, I can't turn Optane back on, if that's needed.

 

Anyone have tips handy on this?
