- # Ubuntu 12.10 on Lenovo Ideapad S205
- This piece of shit hardware does not play nicely with Ubuntu. If you've made it this far, hope you haven't pulled all of you hair out of your head yet.
- ## Important Info
- - The S205 uses UEFI and has no bios switches to disable it.
- - This means that we need to create an EFI partition and use the 64-bit version of Ubuntu (32-bit won't work!) and only use primary partitions
- - Linux Mint doesn't have EFI in it's partitioner for some reason
- - Wifi doesn't work for some reason
- # Steps
- - Create a live USB for Ubuntu 64-bit
- - While on the live USB installation, select "Do Something Else" and make an "EFI" partition of 125MB.
- - Partition the rest of the drive however you want ( / and swap, / and /home and swap, whatever). Use primary partitions only (you might be able to get away with an extended for /home but I haven't tried it).
- - Install
- - Pray
- - Awesome, now Ubuntu is installed
- - Now, go into the BIOS boot menu and make sure that your boot HDD is FIRST, and the mysterious "ubuntu" entry is SECOND. This will enable your Wifi.
- Because holy christ, why is it so fucking hard to install linux on this computer. FUCK.
