Re: Yoga 900-13ISK2 - BIOS update for setting RAID mode for missing hard drive on linux install

2016-10-05, 12:13 PM

szybciak, unlikely. Lenovo has commited not to support Linux on their ideapad yoga series anymore. The hinge is too innovative for that, apparently. You'll be better off looking for competitors.

 

Support might eventually come from the Linux/Intel side (Intel is not as bad as Lenovo, usually) but don't get your hopes too high, it'll be at least months before anything is ready in the kernel and probably years until it's supported out of box by major distributions. By then current hardware will be outdated and it's likely that some new technology will be used insted of this pseudo-raid thingy.

Thanks for your answer. How about other convertible laptops, like for example dell inspiron 7359? They also have such similar hinge, will they run linux smoothly?

Why not bash on Windows 10? Plenty of reasons:

 

1) I don't care for the Windows 10 environment as whole. RIght now I prefer my Mint desktop.

2) I don't like like all the spying that Windows 10 does on your activity. And I don't belive Microsoft will stop anytime soon.

3) I do care about software freedom. It is my hardware, I want to be install whatever I want on it. Especially when there is no real hardware incompatibility: the BIOS issue is a software issue, a choice made by Lenovo (and maybe Microsoft behind).

4) I don't like the direction Windows (and MacOS) are going, where you are incresingly forced to go through their tightly controlled app store to install anything. I choose what I want to install.

I use bash for Windows 10. It's miles better than using a Mac, and the battery life and power management is better than I've had in Linux, but I'd still prefer Linux. I had trouble with Docker, Windows needs to reboot too often (sometimes without asking) and I can't use my preferred window manager. The default terminal options are dreadful too, but I can probably apt-get myself a decent replacement.

Thanks everyone for the information posted here. Unfortunately I came across it only after a failed attempt to install Linux on it :) If I knew I would have never purchased this product. Anyway, I will return it and advice anyone to walk away from it. Cheers!

@Efratoio

Are you aware of the situation, that Lenovo marked this thread as solved? If they'd planned to fix it, it would already be done months ago. They explicitly said, they won't do anything, so I wouldn't wait for a response. The only thing you can hope for is, that someone of the linux community implements a workaround for Lenovos mess.

            Im here back for those who have bought this scammy laptop and still in 14 days returned policy like I ware. Thanks to universe that I found this out before this periud has expired. So I was able to return it. And bought for same money Asus ux303ua...

          Now Im posting the preview of this laptop as alternative to youga 900... Look at the attachments and this link...


:))) This laptop teaches you read reviewas before a buy doesn't it :))))

By the way the yoga 900 is a joint product of Lenovo and Microsoft.   So what you expect from it?
