Yoga 710 - Ubuntu install?

2016-07-26, 2:48 AM

I've tried for 2 days trying to get Ubuntu installed with no luck. I've tried 14.04 and 16. I can get through the install but on reboot I get the can't find root device error. I've tried every solution on the internet related to this error and I still can't get it to work. Anyone have any tips? Otherwise it's going back to BestBuy.

Just have a successful Fedroa 24 installed on my Yoga 710 15" laptop.
Havn't got a chance to conduct a complete test yet, but everything seems to work as expect.

Thanks for the info.  I returned it yesterday and bought a similarly spec'd Dell and Ubuntu installed flawlessly on the first try.
