(710S)Can't install Linux on Ideapad 710S, how do you disable RAID mode?

2016-09-17, 17:47 PM

Just got a Lenovo 710S and tried to install Ubuntu on it, but the installer can't find the drive. If this is something Lenovo did intentionally then they should make that more clear...

 

Is there any workaround? I really like this laptop but I'll return it if there is no way to install other operating systems.

The BIOS that allows Linux to be installed on Ideapad 710s models have been published.

I'm in the same boat

I tried returning it but apparently "It's not a real issue" so I can't.
I hope Lenovo will get their act together soon and fix this

There's already several multi-page discussions floating around.

Can't hurt to post more though.

In the same situation. I really like the hw specs, the looks and the over all nice feel the laptop has, but working as a system dev i do not accept beeing locked out of ahci and denied the ability to install whatever i want on my hardware!

This urgently requires a response and a solution from lenovo, i'm still within the return policy days of my pc distributor and i will sadly return it if there is no fix for this.

In response to customer requests for a BIOS that allows Linux to be installed on Yoga 900 and Ideapad 710s models, Lenovo has started releasing new BIOS.

 

For a complete list of models receiving these BIOS, please read this Knowledge Base article: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-900-and-Ideapad-710S-Linux-Only-BIOS/ta-p/3466850

 

I will post again when the new BIOS for Ideapad 710s are published.

 

Thank you,

I have ideapad 100, and I installed linux mint 18.1 by downloading the iso to a flash drive, and using a program called rufus to make it bootable. In the bios, I enabled legacy support, and then in the boot menu I enabled boot form usb device. Been running Linux Mint ever since! :)

But you boot from USB each time? Does Mint sees Lenova's disc?
