    Re: Installation problem

    Yes, I have tried all suggestions, additionally I found some "Change advance startup options" which has promising options (see
    https://gitlab.com/paapu88/lenovos74..._174430700.jpg
    , tried options 7 and 8 but with no luck. Unfortunately lenovo S740 boots only about every third time from my ubuntu-usb stick, so not sure if it manages to put its safety options back...

    Also tried ubuntu 20.04 but neither did it see the hard drive.

    Re: Installation problem

    Thanks,
    I had done option 2 in https://askubuntu.com/questions/1148...g-installation earlier.
    My disk looks now from windows side:https://gitlab.com/paapu88/lenovos74...Management.png

    If I remember correctly, when first using ubuntu-install-usb-stick (having not yet set AHCI and other bios settings), I did see some disk where to install ubuntu, but it was only 16GB, so I thought (probably incorrectly) that is my usb-stick. Maybe all these problems had been avoided if I'd just installed there??? Perhaps I should get rid of AHCI and go back to factory settings. Opinions?

    terveisin, Markus

    Re: Installation problem

    The images you posted above show that your entire drive is occupied by several windows partitions meaning there is no place on the drive on which to install Ubuntu. Best first step is to use a windows tool such as Disk Management to shrink the largest partition to create unallocated space for Ubuntu if you want to install it. Also, make sure you have fastboot and hibernation off or the windows partitions will not be shown.

    Hello,
    Did shrink partition size with Disk Management, the current situation is:
    https://gitlab.com/paapu88/lenovos74...anagement2.png

    The situation is unchanged, ubuntu 19.10 usb disk does not see any hard disk.

    Fast boot is off (in BIOS settigs), and I could not find any options related to hibernate.

    Maybe the Lenovo has figured out some new protection system?

    Some other Lenovo, issues often common across models by vendor. Bigger difference if AMD or Intel.

    Re: Installation problem

    When I had a similar problem to yours (mine was on a 'miix 3' tablet) I had to turn off Bitlocker in Windows.

    Advice here. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPa...4010647#M83252

    After doing that was I then able to shrink a partition while still in Windows to make room for the installation to go ahead.
    I also had some other issues that probably not applicable to your case.

    Thanks, but bitlocker has been turned off (that was scary when it went in action) and also there is 100GB unallocated space on HD made by windows disk manager...

    I am not familar with OS Optimized Defaults.
    It looks like it really is a UEFI Secure Boot setting?
