I solved the problem
- I created a 14.10 hotkey, and I copied a
bootia32.efi file in the EFI/BOOT directory.
After the installation was complete, I could only access the Grub menu. I hit c, and marked in the command line (autocompleted by hitting tab, so I do not remember the exact versions):
linux (hd1,gpt2)/boot/vmlinuz-3.16-24-generic root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 reboot=force,pci
To fix wireless issues: kernel must be upgraded to version 4.00 at least, so I manually downloaded the new kernel images and installed them (there are three files)
- Reboot and prompt in the grub edit menu the same code as in 2., but with the new kernel's name. The wireless works perfect with kernel 4.0 (I had solve the problem with the WiFi card before installing grub, because my USB WiFi adapter - NeatGear WNA1000M - wasn't recognized).
- After that, I followed this guide from the grub installation
After the OS boots open a terminal and type
sudo bash then type the following:
Install deps for task (type the line below and hit Enter):
apt-get install git bison libopts25 libselinux1-dev autogen m4 autoconf help2man libopts25-dev flex libfont-freetype-perl automake autotools-dev libfreetype6-dev texinfo
Clone repo (type the line below and hit Enter):
git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/grub.git
Compile (type the line below and hit Enter):
./configure --with-platform=efi --target=i386 --program-prefix=""
mkdir -p /usr/local/share/locale
../grub-install -d . --efi-directory /boot/efi/ --target=i386
cp grub/grubia32.efi ubuntu
And then reboot, and that's it. Good luck!
Installation of drivers for Edimax (EW-7811Un RTL8188CUS)
First finish other configurations desired (ie apt-get update/upgrade, etc).
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms git
git clone https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes.git
sudo dkms add ./rtl8192cu-fixes
sudo dkms install 8192cu/1.9
sudo depmod -a
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add the following at the bottom of the file:
Battery monitor is available with the 4.0 kernel, however, the sound card is not recognized yet unfortunately... And Bluetooth does not work, either.
If anyone has a suggestion to fix this issue, I will be very grateful!
