    HP Envy X2 Install ubuntu/fedora

    I would like to know if anyone has an idea about installing ubuntu/fedora on the HP Envy 2X. I cant stand windows and need a new tablet/laptop. The Envy X2 seems really cool but I would only buy it if ubuntu/fedora will install on it.

    I have this question as well. I've tried it, but have had no success. I've disabled uefi and boot security, but still cannot get it to boot into a live 64 bit Ubuntu thumb drive. Any suggestions anyone?

    Well, considering that the HP Envy X2 has a 32-bit Atom processor... There's no way you'll be able to boot from a 64-bit Ubuntu thumb drive... I'm about to build and test a 32-bit thumb drive. I'll see what I can do.

    I am also interested in Linux (Kubuntu) on the HP Envy X2. This would be awesome, especially with the KDE Plasma Active interface.

    If you have the HP Envy x2 11-g000 series and are running Linux on it please consider editing this page or adding a comment below with your compatibility details. By contributing you will help other people running this laptop or trying to make a decision on whether to buy it or not.
    EDIT: this looks like a place where you can buy the HP Envy X2 with almost any Linux distro installed (if you live in Australia):
