    Re: Asus X401A-BHPDN41

    I did it and here's how it was done:

    • I disabled Secure Boot in the BIOS by pressing F2 at boot.
    • Pressing ESC at boot presents a boot menu where you can choose to boot from USB.
    • I ran an Ubuntu x64 live USB and Ubuntu finished installing before I could even finish the first act of Hamelt!

    The Pros:

    • Ubuntu boots and runs very fast, faster than Windows 8, even.
    • Everything seems to be compatible without proprietary drivers (there are none available for Ubuntu)

    The Cons:

    • function keys do not work (do I need to file a bug report for this?)
