I have tried Debian, Ubuntu and Arch, and I can boot into the live-cd, but not hard drive detected so I just can't install Linux.
I keep googling this topic for several weeks, and find that the same problem exists in some recent Lenovo laptops (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12545878). Lenovo had released special BIOS updates for this problem on these laptops (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/forumkb/LL06_EN@TKB!!3466850), but Miix 720 is not included.
Could anyone solve this problem? Will Lenovo release a BIOS update for Linux on Miix 720?

As there is no AHCI supported BIOS, it's impossible to install Linux on internal SSD now.
And you can 1) try WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux, or called bash on Ubuntu on Windows) 2) install Linux on external storage(USB drives).
I have given feedback on Chinese support website, but no solution. They know this but seem to do nothing.
