The power key works, but will only send an event after pressing it for at least one second. This is to prevent accidentally shutting the machine as the power key is very close to the other keys.

Did you have to do anything special to "activate" hibernate? I can't get it to resume, as it never finds the hibernate image when resuming. I tried everything in basic-pm-debugging, all tests seem to succeed, but an actual hibernate-wakeup cycle fails. (I'm using "systemctl hibernate")

Finally found the solution. The SSD/nvme driver takes while initializing and enumerating partitions. During the time taken for that, the resume code already decided the "resume"partition was absent, and skipped resuming. A tactically placed "sleep 1" in the initrd's resume code did the trick.

So can I have Windows and Linux on the same machine (dualboot) or not?

 

If it is not the case, it will be possible in the future? 

 

Thanks

I found that we can activate a Linux Subsystem on Windows. It's a beta but it works fine (even you can install software using apt).

 

I'm working with programmes that uses qthreads, massivethreads, etc... (wich are third party libraries) And everything works fine.

 

Hopefully someone else can take profit on this, and keep Windows (because we pay for it...).

Hi,

You wrote that "... you need to switch to AHCI mode yourself in BIOS". So there's possibility of choosing RAID mode and being able to boot Windows after BIOS upgrade? Lenovo states what follows:

"This BIOS creates an AHCI SATA Controller Mode selection to allow for the installation of the Linux operating system.
This BIOS is NOT intended for use with machines running a Windows operation system.
No official support is provided for this BIOS. The user assumes the risk of any performance degradation associated with the use of this BIOS."

I was wondering if there's any possibility of rolling back or upgrading to the main branch BIOS, as the upgrading tool is available as .exe file or if there'e possibility of going back to Windows, for example for reselling purposes.

Greetings,

Sebastian

Hi,

I bought 710s plus several days ago and didn't flash any bios. Changed some option in BIOS to legacy support and installed Ubuntu 16.04.02 from usb flash drive. For what reason there is a special BIOS for linux?

Is legacy mode not optimal and there is some reason to flash special bios for linux?

Hi, @Richard_linux

I recently purchase the Lenovo Ideapad 710S Plus 13IKB and after boot a USB flash drive with a live linux version, I can't complete the linux installation because I can't see the SSD disk. I have the 3NCN16WW V2.02 BIOS version, apparently the latest ( http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/es/es/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/700-SERIES/710S-PLUS-13IKB/downloads/DS119781).

What changes have you done to the BIOS? What version is? Did you have the option "SATA Controller Mode"? Have you change something in Windows 10 or you have remover it?.

Thanks a lot.

My lenovo is ideapad 710S Plus-13ISK model 80VU  (date 16/12/18). Maybe only IKB versions have linux SSD problems?

I bought it for my wife and had only 1 day to install Ubuntu. So I tested the basic functionality in Win10 and tried to boot from Ubuntu 16.04.2 flash drive (I don't remember what and when I changed to legacy support). And I been able to see everything about SSD (partitions, files and folders) from that Ubuntu. So I quickly install Ubuntu on a windows partition.

If you need more info I can check all details after several days.

Thanks @Richard_linux for your reply.

If it is possible and when you can, I need to know if you have the option "SATA Controller Mode" in the BIOS setup like the second picture in https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_XHQ1-AOsTOflFidGZnWnQxemNtSFByenNmM2FTUVp3Vi1ETklKdHM5SVg3TDJEeUZidGc.

 

In my case it doesn't appears and I think it can be the reason why I dont' see the SSD since in https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-900-and-Ideapad-710S-Linux-Only-BIOS/ta-p/3466850 says "In response to customer requests for BIOS with an AHCI option on several Yoga and Ideapad systems, Lenovo has provided Linux Only BIOS...".

Regards.
