In Topic: Ideapad does not install Bodhi Linux

12 November 2017 - 12:07 PM

Last night I knew my laptop was saved when it allowed Ubuntu to install. Will try Bodhi on an older laptop now that I received kindly more detailed instructions from SmartDuck:



First you will have to enable booting from usb in the bios.
Function (Fn) + F2 just after starting your ideapad will let you change the bios settings.
Sometimes you will have to press several times to get access.
Go to the configuration tab and set USB-legacy  to Enabled,
Go to the security tab and set Intel platform trust technology to Disabled,
Go to the boot tab and set the
   boot mode to lagacy support, 
   boot priority to UEFI First,
   USB boot to Enabled
Go to the  exit tab and set OS Optimized Defaults to Disabled
Press exit saving changes.
After restart press F12 to enter the boot menu en choose the usb option. (Flash drive you have connected)
The Lenovo Ideapad is a great little notebook. Runs fine with Bodhi Linux, everything works out of the box.
When this will work on my old HP notebook it is not an answer for my Ideapad but since SmartDuck has his notebook running I will mark this thread as solved.
Thank you all.

Thanks for your reaction. I´ve asked SmartDuck for more details. SecureBoot, where possible, was disabled. I am a layperson in these matters, hope the laptop can be saved.
