    just rebooted with a 32-bit netboot image, usb problems still persist. So don't bother trying that. back to compiling a removable ehcd_hci...

    Is this what you have?
    New Intel Atom - Nov 2013 x86 secure boot can be turned off, but only 32 bit UEFI which no one else has.
    Intel Atom SoC systems that ship with Windows 8/8.1 32-bit provide 32-bit UEFI-only firmware with no BIOS compatibility option (no CSM). In UEFI terms these systems are called Class 3 systems (this term is not specific to 32-bit), ie. UEFI-only with no BIOS CSM.
    Windows with Atom

    Don't ship 32-bit UEFI firmware on x86

    Re: Booting anything from UEFI USB - packard Bell ENME69BMP InsydeH2O

    I am not really up to date concerning the cpu naming schemes intel uses nowadays...
    As far as I can tell, it's not an Atom, at least it says it's a Celeron N2805 / Silvermont cpu, dual core, 64 bit (released about a month ago, I think). And it's running Ubuntu amd64 perfectly fine except for the USB controller.
    But I don't really know if it's just an Atom relabeled for marketing purposes, I guess not.

    But yes, it's got a 32bit UEFI only firmware with no CSM and SecureBoot enabled by default but that doesn't really matter.
    Dual boot with Windows 8 32bit, Ubuntu 13.10 32/64 kernels both work in conjunction with Grub 1.99 32Bit+EFI support, works just fine.
    Intel ValleyView VGA/SATA/PCIe/SMBus and Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 all work fine and out-of-the-box. But the USB (ValleyView rev0a) with ehci-pci doesn't work with neither 32 nor 64 bit kernels.
    EFI is v2.03 by INSYDE corp, although the kernel tells me its v2.31 (plus the message: No EFI runtime due to 32/64-bit mismatch with kernel)

    I read somewheres (about another problem) though, that I could try to disable USB2.0 (ehcd_hci) and only use USB1.1 (which would be better than no usb at all)..

    I do not comprehend that they would offer a 32bit UEFI on a 64 bit chip??? I do not even see how that saves any money unless the nvram can be a bit smaller. It sounds more like a Microsoft thing on only letting you boot Windows.

    It seems there's a new bios but it doesn't fix the issue.

    1. Fix Modify show boot fail dialog behavior issue.
    2. Fix S4 RTC wake up issue.
    3. Fix Retry 5 times for PXE Boot fail issue.

    @davidlukas.m
    So, did you finally manage to install ubuntu?
    I'm planning to buy this computer and get rid totally of windows i won't use. I'm able to tinker the boot and everything but does it worth it?

    thanks

    For the same price, almost same CPU, 2go of ram more and a bit more heavy there's this one : Toshiba SATELLITE NB10-A-103 (Amazon description here : http://www.amazon.fr/Toshiba-Sat-NB1...productDetails)
    But, in the technical document you can find on the Toshiba website it claims the battery last 3,5h... So basically 2,5h...

    Yes, but USB does not work and I cannot recommed it at all.

    If you really want to buy this computer and want to install ubuntu on it, make sure that you at least
    - know how to compile grub, how to edit Makefiles and how to google for compile errors (& how to fix them)
    - know how to manually load a kernel from inside the grub shell
    - know how to install a ubuntu-netboot image (no graphical installer)
