View Full Version : Dual boot of Lubuntu 18.10 and Windows 10 on Acer One 10

December 25th, 2018, 02:30 PM
For the reason of weight (2.8 lbs), I'd like to buy Acer One 10.
1. Is the installation of Lubuntu for dual boot of Lubuntu 18.10 and pre-installed Windows 10 difficult?
2. Is Acer One 10 suitable for Ubuntu 18.04 to dual boot with Windows 10 ?

What model, and is this an older used, I do not find specs for any current verisons.

The MMC card of 32GB makes it just about impossible to dual boot. You may be able to install to an external flash card and boot it?
And some only have 1GB of RAM which is now very small.

See another older thread on lightweight Acer.

If microsoft is to be believed, you will have a very difficult time installing it based on space requirements. See the link to the microsoft site below. You could boot your Linux DVD/USB and run sudo parted -l to list partitions and space used/available.

It looks like one of those systems that is 64 bit, but uses a 32 bit UEFI for some odd reason?
