Hi,


I'm having great difficulty in getting Ubuntu installed on my Lafite Pro 14". During the Ubuntu installation, when you get to the screen to partition the disk and install, the NVMe disk isn't showing up as an option. When running things like fdisk from the live USB, it cannot see the disk at all. It appears to be because the Insyde H2O BIOS is too restrictive and I cannot disable the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST).


PC Specialist so far are refusing to provide any support as I'm trying to use Linux, despite it being very clear when I configured the laptop that my intention was to have no OS shipped with it and to install Linux.


If anyone can review the spec below and advise on what I can do to get Ubuntu installed on my laptop I'd appreciate it!



Thanks
