Re: Installing Ubuntu 16.04 on Yoga 900S

2017-10-10, 0:53 AM

Hi everyone! Did somebody install linux on the 900s in the end? I tried to do it but have very strange issue. When i close laptop cover and open it again the screen becomes to flash. It looks like hardware problem, but i'm shure it;s not. First, windows works fine, second, it can work perfectly for several hours till i close and open it. And after all i checked another one notebook (absolutely identical) and it has the same problem. You can see these flashes in video below.

I tried Ubuntu 16.04 Unity, Ubuntu 17.04 Gnome and Debian. I tried to reinstall all video drivers... No effect...

hi Fyarik

 

Last year when this thread was active I tried just about everything to make Ubuntu work on my 900s. It sort of worked for a while although a number of things needed tweaking (like hibernation, touch screen, working with the pen etc.). But then Windows 10 upgraded itself & my dual boot option was destroyed. I still like the 900s, such a pretty little machine, but I am actively looking for another laptop that will run linux properly. 

Good luck...

Try installing easyuefi and rEFInd to help fix booting problems. The latter gives you a flexible boot menu, the former allows you to make it the default.

Hi,

I tried to install linux on my Yoga 900S, but I am unable to see disk in linux.

What version of bios do you have? What setting you applied in bios? What version of Yoga 900S do you have?

 

Thanks
