    Installing linux on ideapad 710S Plus Touch

    I just purchased a refurbished ideapad (710S Plus Touch -13IKB) and am trying to install linux. I made a mistake in not going through the boards before making the purchase, yuuuge mistake. Anyway, I have now read some of the threads on this forum and elsewhere. If I understanding things correctly, lenovo issued some bios updates in 2016 and 2017 for some select ideapad models. I don't think my model was on that list. Besides, the bios version on my model is 3NCN33WW(V2.55), which is newer than the bios updates released by lenovo.


    I am presently able to log through 'recovery' mode from windows 10 and test the liveusb version of the linux distribution I am trying to install (Fedora). But, as many people have pointed out, the linux installer does not detect the SSD. Without a bios update from lenovo for my ideapad, is there a way out? Or is returning the machine the only solution?

    Is the installation process different with Ubuntu?


    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    PS: On a side note, why is the fan so noisy on this ideapad? I have used thinkpads for the past decade and they were so wonderfully quiet.

    Thread moved to the "Fedora/RedHat and derivatives" forum.

    why is the fan so noisy on this ideapad?
    That would be enough for me to send it back.
