    Hi,

    What display issues are you experiencing? (Screen Flicker, Brightness...)

    Are you able to turn your wireless off?

    Thanks.

    I just bought an Asus X101CH in Canada thinking that aside from some treatable resolution issues it was well supported.

    But the 12.10 wouldn't even boot on it, and others are having this problem too. I believe I got around it by making sure that it was networked (wired is always safest) when it first booted, but I'm not sure. For a wihle my symptoms were like others': blank screen, flashing cursor, no ability to drop to terminal.

    I've managed to go through the install of 12.10 on the X101CH, but after it rebooted, it won't bring up the OS.
    I would stay far away from this hardware. Do not buy hardware that others' haven't found to be easy to install your OS on, unless you've very talented.

    Besides, there are other problems with this netbook, still as of 2012 November. My advice is to avoid it completely:

    Did you attempt to use the boot-repair tool?
