    Question ASUS X55C and Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10


    I've bought new ASUS X55C laptop (LINK), with no OS preinstaled (only DOS). I've installed Win7, since I got in box cd with Win7 drivers, and everything works fine.

    Now, I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 (dualboot), and I tried it (from CD, without installation). I noticed that my network isn't worknig (wifi, LAN), keyboard commands doesn't work fine, etc...

    I googled for ubuntu drivers, but all I've founded is this LINK. My question is this:

    Can anyone tell me is Ubuntu going to work fine (network, keyboard,...) when I install it, although it doesn't work on "Try Ubuntu" mode? I wouldn't like to install OS that wouldn't work.

    Sorry for bad english, and thanks in advance.

    my advice would be to try dip your foot in the pool by dual-booting. I would also make sure your connected through ethernet before installing and that will save hassle. When I installed on my Asus production machine, it was connected through ethernet and all the drivers worked perfectly.
