    Great news. But I strongly recommend trying out the final kernel 3.9 instead of the development kernel. Its running here on 12.04 without problems including the proprietary NVIDIA driver.

    and you still didnt have the option to change the position of the disk before ubuntu? perhaps there are some other differances in hardware other than the APU. Im glad you worked it out. I hope there will be a fix for this by default in the next version, because this problem with EFI (some distros wont even install) and WIFI sucks

    I had no problems with 12.04 and 12.10 that can't be worked out.
    I've tried 3.9 on 13.04 with no success.

    I'll stick with 3.10-rc2 until further tests.


    BTW : it's an ATI on the lenovo S205 (AMD APU)

    @snake561 : no, but I haven't reinstalled, things I should maybe do now as I may face the other problem : slow wifi

    I see one difference.
    I've replaced the HDD with a SSD.

    Each time I make partitions for the EFI one, ubuntu add an 1Mb part just before.
    That's may be the difference between yours and mine and why I don't have the mysterious "ubuntu" partition

    So is it now working as expected? Are you all set?

    Sadly no

    I've reinstalled the OS to go on a clean basis.
    Blacklisted rt* and acer_wmi.
    Installed 3.10-rc2

    But this time it's still hard blocked.

    I can't figure out what's wrong now
    I even resetted the bios to default and tried to play with Fn-F5 and hard switch.

    Maybe I post it again: Reset your BIOS to default settings.

    Just upgraded my hdd with an ssd and now I have the same issue, the ubuntu entry in bios is gone and my wifi is hard blocked. Not to mention that I had to install ubuntu 6x times before it even booted, because non of the previous hacks with efi or fat 16/32 partition worked (had to run boot-repair from live- usb).

    This is kind of retarded, that after such a long time this netbook and efi is out things get worse and not better
