I understand that the device might not be certified but as all normal manufacturers it should run any linux flavour.

 

I have managed to install Ubuntu with uneboot tool.

 

At the installation press TAB and add the option noapic

 

On ubuntu the brigthess controll works , while on windows does not.

 

However the touchPad problem persists. Is there any solution for the touchpad ????

Is the touchpad not working in Windows? Apparently we don't have available touchpad driver for Ubuntu.
