The installation USB launches, but stops with the following screen:

"hw perf events fixed 4 > max(3), clipping!"

I read somewhere, this is Linux's issue with the Intel Gen 10th. Ubuntu 19.10 and CentOS-8 didn't work either.

Please Ubuntu, fix this issue.

  • Have a look at this. github.com/jakeday/linux-surface It does not list surface 7, but can open a new issue. – Archisman Panigrahi Dec 3 '19 at 5:37
  • Thanks, but that github page only provides a bunch of lib to make touch and pen function. I cannot install (so far any) Linux to begin with. – Davood Norouzi Dec 7 '19 at 13:47

I decided to go with WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux, Ubuntu version) plus Xming X Server to get all the graphical functionalities. I can even use my pen to draw on Linux's Gimp using this combo. I got all the benefits of having a Linux and at the same time preserving the unique interface that Surface Pro 7 offers.
