Yoga 900-13isk for biz and linux

[ Edited ]

 

Good evening, this week I bought a Laptop Lenovo Yoga 900-13 isk for biz. I tried to install Linuxmint from a USB flash drive, but Linuxmint does not detect my hard drive Raid. I found information on other websites that had to update my Bios with a special version "Linux". I downloaded this Bios on the Lenovo site, but the exe does not want to start because my original Bios is more recent. Thank you for your help. (I speak French and translated by a translation site)

As mentioned on the previous page, enable the "flash back" option in BIOS:

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

So question... now that I'm running on this custom BIOS (Linux runs great btw!)

 

Does this mean there's no way to boot Windows now? I'm thinking of doing a dual-boot or booting from a USB drive.  I prefer the USB drive boot since my internal SSD drive doesn't have a lot of room left.

 

 

So I tried that (I created a bootable Windows USB 3.0 stick) but it blue screens with a STOP error when I try to boot into Windows.  (I used "WintoUSB" to burn Windows 7 to it)

 

This same USB stick works fine in a different laptop I tested it with, so I'm guessing it's this BIOS, and so the question is - is there a way to dual-boot Linux / Windows with this BIOS?

 

 

Thanks

I'd like to thanks the community for your involvment and actions to push for a solution, and sharing your experiences. I was able to setup a double boot fast & easy now. As soon as I complete a good experience with Linux, I'll get it as a single boot :-)

Regards,

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

I bought my Ideapad 510-15ISK with sales staff guarantees it would run Linux out of the box. I then had to travel overseas and Officeworks stalled me until returning it was unreasonable; Out of the box, Yeh right, it's my first & LAST Lenovo machine; they've sold out to Soft Micros. A shame because the machine has some good points like the software managment idea that is mandatory to stop windows bluescreening every two weeks.
