C930 Dual Boot

2019-11-11, 13:38 PM

Hello,

 

Does anyone already tried to put the C930 in dual boot ?

I would like to use the device both private and for work but I want to have the working environments seperated from each other.

 

I also have the previous Yoga Book running Android and on that one it is a breeze, just add a new user et voila.

Added a dual boot Windows/Linux/Chromebook on my laptop and also works like a charm.

 

The problem already starts with the software to setup the dual boot, how can I get that on the device ?

 

For your information, I don't have the C930 yet so cannot test yet.

Waiting impatiently to receive my order in the next days ;-)

Hi ,

 

 

Welcome to the community forums.

 

We've found a discussion here where other users tried a dual boot on their Yoga Book C930. There's some user that successfully did the dual boot however, there are some features that's not working.

 

In addition, you may check the list of Lenovo devices compatible with Linux here.

 

Hope this helps.

Auxen

Hi Auxen,

 

Thanks for your input already, much appreciated !

 

However, I want to setup a dual boot wih two Windows OS.

I want to use the PC for both work and private but because of specific security policies for work I prefer to use seperate Windows environments instead of different users.

 

Although I have some positive experiences with Linux, I prefer Windows for day-to -day usage at this time.

If possible I can maybe add Linux in triple boot to do some furhter testing and get used to it for day-to-day usage ? :smileywink:

 

The questions I have are :

- Are the installation files available on the laptop (for example for recovery purposes) and can I use these to install a seperate Windows environment in dual boot ?

- Are recovery files available on the laptop or any other media, in case I need to roll back to factory defaults ?

- If these are not available or cannot be used to setup a dual boot, hwat are then the options/requirements to install a Windows (I've read for example in the Linux post to which you referred to that a USB-C stick/drive will be required) ?

 

Thanks for you support !
