This is NOT resolved.  The user requirement is to be able to dual-boot both Linux AND Windows, not Linux OR Windows.  Without this ability the machine is worthless to me.

Danny,

 

Agreed. Lenovo, please create a better, easier, and more streamline solution (better BIOS) for us. We bought the product. Now fix it.

Re: ideapad 710s and Linux

hello Amy:

 

I bought an Ideapad 710S Plus 13IKB having seen this thread, convinced I'd be able to install Linux, only to find out that, for some reason, this is actually a distinct model from both 710S-13IKB and Ideapad 710S Plus-13ISK.

 

I just want to know whether a bios driver will be made available to install Linux on this computer, or whether I should outright take it back to the store.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

 

Does anyone know if the newest BIOS (0NCN42WW) has the AHCI option available?

 

The less than useless "changelog" of Lenovo isn't any help, and I don't know if I can downgrade to 0NCN27S2 if the new BIOS fails.
