    I'm quite sure that removing Windows will have no effect on this situation, unless you are running Ubuntu in a VM.

After installation, during first run and during live boot from USB, Ubuntu works perfectly along with touch screen, touch pad and everything else. When I boot from HDD later, I get weird errors like "Fixing recursive fault but requires reboot". Tue system came preinstalled with Win10. I wonder if formatting the whole drive and inatalling only Ubuntu 16.04 would be of any use - anyone tried that?

    I have had the same issue with Yoga 700-11ISK and Ubuntu 16.04 on that.
    There are several threads in the internet, and it all leads to the HID multitouch module being the root cause (changing your ACPI setting disables that module).
    The only thing that worked for me is upgrading to the latest kernel (4.10).
    There is another thread mentioning that this has caused wireless failures for some setups:
    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1297188
    but I didn't notice that to be the case for me (I also used newer kernel, that thread is stuck on 4.7).

    I think I found a workaround for this, while still using the standard 4.4.0 kernel.

    I noticed that hid_sensor_hub was always the first listed module in the kernel error dumps when I booted without "quiet" and "splash".

    Edit /etc/defaults/grub and make the following change,

    -GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    +GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="modprobe.blacklist=hi d_sensor_hub quiet splash"


    then run sudo update-grub.

    It has booted up several times for me, and the touchscreen works. I don't know if the fingerprint sensor works, but I don't care about that.

    OK,

    That last proposed solution works well for me.

    Thanks a lot

    OK,

    That last proposed solution works well for me. It is actually better than acpi=noirq.

    Thanks a lot

    I just bought the "Lenovo Yoga 710 2-in-1 15.6" Touch-Screen Laptop - Intel Core i5 - 8GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce 940MX - 256GB SSD - Pearl black"

    I was stuck at the Ubuntu 16.04 boot hangup until I saw this thread. I used GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=noirq" solution initially and the install went smooth from there.

    I wasn't interested in microsoft so I made a recovery usb first and wiped it clean. Then I wanted to post a thank you to Swetha and noticed the follow on suggestion of "modprobe.blacklist=hid_sensor_hub" which indeed leaves the touch screen enabled and seems to be working.

    At this point, everything (including wifi) seems to be working just fine.

    Thank you all!
