DualBoot on Yoga 910

Hello, I am thinking of buying Yoga 910, but for me it is basic to have Linux and Windows in the laptop. Is it possible in Yoga 910?
Thanks

Yes, but be very careful, as getting Linux to work on this laptop requires extensive knowledge in Linux and its kernel. You will have to change RST to AHCI in BIOS, and fresh install windows (download essential drivers before installing), then install linux.

Hi,

 

I updated the BIOS,

 

1st

Tryed boot by USB Linux mint but didn't find the HDD...
2nd

Enter BIOS change HDD to AHCI, than i the MINT installer can find the HDD, but cannot finalize installation becuase didnt detect correctly the boot manager or where to install it.
Once the BIOS at this mode, i cannot boot windows at any way.

So if i want to erase all HDD and install MINT i think wil be no problem, but dual boot no way.

 

3rd Back SATA configuration to initial state and all ok...

Some help needed... becuase i mainly use Linux Mint but sometimes i need Windows.

Tks

Try installing GRUB boot manager? Is Linux Mint UEFI, or Legacy BIOS? The reason why you can't boot into windows is because windows was installed in RAID mode, not AHCI. Reinstall windows in AHCI mode, and you shouldn't have any problems with Linux Mint finding the boot manager.
