You may be interested in my experiences in doing this: https://coosoft.wordpress.com/2014/12/22/installing-ubuntu-on-an-asus-eee-901-pc/ Basically I have the OS on the 4GiB SSD but enough space to install applications and do updates etc. Hope this helps, Tony.

Although the questioner answered their own question, the answer is less than ideal as the larger SSD is slower than the 4GiB (this is why they had the split - fast expensive 4GiB vs slower cheaper 8/12GiB SSD). I did this on the 4GiB/12GiB model. I got the OS running happily on the 4GiB SSD. I wrote about it. If anyone is still interested, it's here: ...

99% the answer would be "yes" - but not 100% sure. It's impossible to tell about ALL Asus computers, but really I've never seen a modern laptop being unable to run Ubuntu and Windows in dual boot. (Maybe I'm just lucky ;)) I recommend you to try Xubuntu or Lubuntu, they should run faster than Ubuntu.

Your device does indeed lack a driver. Please get a temporary internet connection and open a terminal: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential git git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/mt7630.git cd mt7630 make sudo make install sudo modprobe rt2800pci Let us know about any errors or if you get stuck. We will ...

It looks like that model has an Atheros Wifi/BT combo card and the AR3012 has issues in Linux with the xhci drivers and the ath3k module needs to be loaded later. The only workaround I have found involves blacklisting ath3k and using rc.local to load the module echo "blacklist ath3k" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath3k.conf and gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local ...

I'm running Ubuntu 14.10 on MacBookPro8,1, and I have had success with the synclient command (check the current settings with synclient -l). For me, the following command disables 3-finger gestures synclient TapButton3=1 Alternatively, you could try to adjust the sensitivity.

In nine years of using many versions of Ubuntu on probably well over 50 laptops total (long story) I've found this to sometimes occur on new installations but ordinarily it settles down after a few updates. How long have you had this installation installed? If you answer less than 2 weeks, please try this. Press your windows key. type upd -enter-. At ...

I have an ASUS G56JK and had the same problem. It is now fixed for me. In the terminal: sudo gedit /etc/default/grub Change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=" Save, then sudo update-grub Restart computer. The function keys (fn+F5/F6) should now be active.

The short answer is, you can't do it. Your laptop isn't the only one. I recall reading the reason is an incompatibility with the linux kernel and the combination of a 64bit processor but a 32bit uefi like these laptops have. it's the baytrail processor and its stupid frankenstein of a uefi that's the problem. from memory the only way of getting linux to boot ...

Do you have Ubuntu and Windows on two separate partitions on the same HDD? Unfamiliar with your error but, they will cause a lot of problems like taking boot priority over eachother, I keep Windows on different HDD's from other OS's. I don't recommend using any of Windows recovery options if you get an error. I don't understand, what partition is blank?

The standard Ubuntu NVidia drivers generate some problems on slightly older and slightly newer NVidia hardware. If you want more then the standard Ubuntu repository drivers, install the xorg.edgers PPA. As the xorg.edgers group ask not to give installation instructions directly without linking to their page, this is the best I can do. If you don't know ...

I suspect I know what the problem is. You see, when you installed Ubuntu, you almost certainly depended on that wireless connection for the internet access Ubuntu needs to install properly. It probably worked just well enough to try and fail. Fortunately you probably don't have to re-install. You simply need to connect internet to it via an Ethernet ...

You will find a usefull instruction how to install Asus x205ta here: https://github.com/lopaka/instructions/blob/master/ubuntu-14.10-install-asus-x205ta.md I succeeded to install it without problems. Some features like WLAN and CardReader are not working out of the box, so you have to use an WLAN-stick as work around for actualizing software in the ...

Try to plug it into on of your USB 3.0 ports (xhci_hcd) if you have one. I have the same issue when I plug my zenfone into any of my USB 2.0 ports (ehci-pci), it just detects the phone but doesn't mount it.

Although the seller did not let me test the software I ended up buying an ASUS F553M. I installed Ubuntu in accordance with the instructions given here and the computer is running almost 100%. With the exception of not turning off, is locked in the message "* will now halt", and consequent problems in restarting, all hardware seems to work. Thank you, Vasco ...

The problem was the tablet. There were settings you had to initially set to get it to work and they dealt with how the image is hosted. I had forgotten about these settings and did not change them. I used an SD card and the SD card reader to install. Just in case you were wandering I used Android as my OS because its small and fast enough to run well on the ...

if your just trying to boot off of the USB, go to system BIOS and enable CSM. you also need to put it into legacy mode.

synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=2 TapButton3=3 as mentioned above helps me a lot for sudo dmidecode -s system-product-name Aspire E5-571 Also using https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/gpointing-device-settings/ to enable VertTwoFingerScroll and HorizTwoFingerScroll. It works. Maybe synclient can enable it too, but the app works well. But I ...

I've had some success with installing linux on this laptop. The UEFI is 32-bit, and so I had to compile a 32-bit UEFI grub to boot. The wireless card in this laptop is also unsupported currently. It's supported in android, but not in the current Broadcom linux drivers.

The best way is to go to a computer shop which sells one of your models and ask whether you may boot Ubuntu from an USB stick in order to test if everything's fine (emphasize that you're not going to change anything at the computer at all - I've experienced that many resellers have never heard of Ubuntu, let alone used it.) You can put an Ubuntu ISO on an ...

You can try to use the netboot approach. Check out the caveat here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EeePC/Fixes#Installing_Ubuntu_via_PXE. 14.04 might still be affected. The netboot guide is on another community doc https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/Netboot

My Asus x200 will not boot when secure boot is enabled, but works just fine when secure boot is disabled. UEFI mode otherwise works fine. The other 'gotcha' is that the boot order is not persistent when the usb is removed. The default order of hard disk first is reset, so you might have to play around with that too.

You will probably need internet connection for installing the driver. How much i know from our little chat, you have a Note 4 Android phone connected to your WiFi. Try to set up USB Tethering on the phone and connect the phone to Ubuntu via USB cable, it should work out from the box for working internet connection. Next step is on Ubuntu, go to System ...

The problem was I have UEFI, I had to play around in the BIOS settings to get it to properly boot. I turned off secure and fast boot. It won't allow me to set my USB as my default boot so I will have to do that manually but that's no big deal. Thank you to all who helped on this question. Very much appreciated.

try to set your BIOS settings to default and try it again. It looks like a GPU issue, that is true, but it can be bcs of Asus BIOS settings, some turbo mode or similar. Report the progress! EDIT: When you boot the Live CD, navigate to System Settings->Software & Upgrades->Additional Drivers. Wait few seconds to find your hardware and check for ...

It could be that your USB Stick is too large with 256 GB of storage, and "corrupted" from creating a bootable image. Normal people have USB with 8, 16 or max 32 GB, or DVD's of 4.7 GB ;) I have one suggestion on that issue: I boot my Ubuntu Live CD from my phone via DriveDroid app. You can get it for Android and iPhone and it mounts via cable all ISO's ...
