Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

I think you misunderstood, I meant this Ubuntu 18.04 gnome(default) itself http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/

 

Also, Are you sure that you have secure boot disabled?

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

I tried the link you provided. I guess it is slightly different from the one i was using. See the attached screen shot. I did verify the secure boot option was disabled.

 

The usb stick does work on a laptop Lenovo r61. However it did keep logging me out of it. But booting it did work.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

I did find this bug looks relatively new and pertains to my system https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/systemd/+bug/1771486 Not sure it that is the only reason but contributor for sure.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

From the screenshot, it looks like the machine is not able to mount the NTFS partition because Windows is still using it.

There are a couple of things to note here. Windows 10 has this feature called "Fast shutdown" or something like that, which means, 

when we shutdown a windows 10 machine, it doesn't actually completely shutdown, it's more like a hibernation. So, if you are trying to mount such a disk, you will get the error in the screenshot (the beginning part)

 

What I did (as explained in the post) is that, I first did a shrink on the C drive of Windows, which freed some disk, and left that as an empty partition. Then boot into the live USB, did all the editing of the boot options, and installed Ubuntu on this freed partition. 

 

Please try this way.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

Thank you. I did not want to install directly on my disk just yet but boot usb. yes I did make a 40G partition but have not tried to install yet. Yes the system was fully powered down. At least the light was out and I held the power button for several minuets to make sure it powered down 100%.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

"Fully powered down" for a Win 10 machine is SHIFT + shutdown, or a shutdown with fast startup turned off.  Win 10 "normal" shutdown is more like hibernation.  Restart also invokes a full shutdown.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

Well i tried to install the Xubuntu now , not just run it from the USB. I get the power supply error message 1/2 way into the install. Wont power off do had to hold power button 20 sec to power down. I have a feeling ill be sending this back and getting a dell. Appears the latest code does not work on this device. This has nothing to do with me not trying everything under the sun to get it to work.

 

Keeps erroring out with powerfupply akp288_fuel_gauge: driver failed to report 'charge now' property: -6
over and over. from what i read this is a bug. Dont know when or if it will ever be resolved.

 

update : Tried it again stuck on creating user for 1.5 hrs now. Me thinks its not working.
