Yes, of course. Otherwise nothing is possible.

There will not be any x64 Bios, the product has been replaced in their lineup so not ever maintained.

 

x64 bios mean x64 OSes for all tablets sold (EFI only work with an OS of the same architecture x86 with x86 and so on)

 

they could even add a legacy mod, but they willn't do it because we're not enought to ask, and there is no lenovo employee (the grade is not a proof for the one getting it to be in the lenovo community staff)

0 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

Re: Alternatives OSes and CMS under Yoga 1051

sorry for double posting but i probably got a solution, i'll post it when i'll be sure of it

 

stay tuned

 

edit: there is a way to add grub at the efi boot menu and editing the grub.cfg to make it boot linux live from emmc, android x86.

 

tested not working:

- Windows 7 x86 (no i386 modules for booting with grub),

- Windows 7 x64 (grub lets linux x64 boot due to it's flexibility but not x64 native firmwares)

- android on intel architecture (native x64 boot via gummiboot, and no visible kernel to transpose it to grub at this time)

 

more comming

 

Edit 2: after more testing, this cannot enable SD card boot (linux see emmc as sdcard (mmcblk0)) grub don't know how to access SDcard reader

installing grub willn't help you much than extending linux compatibility

for those interested:
http://superuser.com/questions/918025/install-grub2-with-efi-ia32-support-to-the-esp-partition-from-within-windows-8/1023377#1023377

 

add drive letter with disk part to esp and copy with cmd and xcopy

 

and finally use easyuefi to add an entry to the uefi bios loader and get on it

 

for editing grub edit the boot/grub/grub.cfg file

 

at this time successfully booted ubuntu and LMDE, i'll try gentoo.

 

for an optimised android, you have to build it by yourself because of intel obsession for all inclusive (no access to kernel for booting with grub instead of x64 gummieboot

 

other distros like gentoo and slitaz may work but no idea for bluetooth and wifi support.

 

tryed fedlett too, but didn't boot completely

Does anyone know if we'll be able to load RemixOS for the Yoga 1051?
