View Full Version : Installation Help pavilion x2 detachable atom z8300

The model is 10-n110na

Though there are many posts and cites claiming that they've succeeded, I couldn't install any linux (debian/ubuntu based). Most of the threads were about the old versions of this tablet. They were either atom z3735 or with 32bit uefi. Mine is atom z8300 and 64 bit uefi. Boot isn't a problem for me, maybe cpu wasn't the biggest problem.

1. I tried Linux mint, ubuntu 14.x 15.x (all 04 and 10). Some of them had random freeze, some black screen after boot (even using nomodeset). When writing them to the 500g hdd (rather than usb) I went to the last step, but it stuck at the last step (detecting system)
2. There are many choices for the location of ubuntu. 32g built-in together with win 10 or remove win 10, or 500g hdd, or the micro sd(not likely) I can accept almost any, but I do want to keep the original windows 10.

Sorry for my bad English, and thank you for finishing reading.
