    Btw, I just noticed Manjaro jumped up to distro #2 in popularity the past 30 days on Distrowatch.com (see image attached below).  Is there a reason? I think so. Manjaro XFCE is my preferred distro.

    Hi,

    is it possible to remove completely windows 10 and do a fresh install of ubuntu and leave Ubuntu as the only system?

    According to this “https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI&#8221;

    Section:
    <h1 id=”Installing_Ubuntu_in_UEFI_mode”>Installing Ubuntu in UEFI mode</h1>
    <h2 id=”Case_when_Ubuntu_must_be_installed_in_UEFI_mode”>Case when Ubuntu must be installed in UEFI mode</h2>

    • if Ubuntu is the only operating system on your computer, then it does not matter whether you install Ubuntu in UEFI mode or not.

    I think it’s possible do it withouth problems with boot ,uefi , refind .. is it correct?

    Thanks

    I’ve been running Linux Mint 18.3 now for about a month on this device without any major problems. I’ve had no problems with the touchpad at all! I’m really a newbie at Linux and Linux Mint is newbie friendly but also a bit boring. Also the battery life kinda sucks, got 2 more hours on Windows. What distros do you recommend (not Ubuntu) that uses the same repos as Ubuntu? The reason is that it makes it alot easier for  me to do different guides and tutorials. Is there an easy way to exract/backup installed applications?

    So, I installed Atergos 18 on the EZbook pro v4, without any changes like rEFInd. I installed a Samsung 128GB SSD and wiped the windows partition. I then did the install with Systemd instead of grub2. I worked great out of the box with only the mousepad not working in the USB booted Antergos and after install. I did a “load defaults” on the BIOS and the mousepad works. I’m testing it now to see if I’ll run into the freeze issue. It’s been running fine for the past 3 days.

    Hope this helps someone.

    It is weird, mine is working with the patched kernel, no touchpad freezing issues at all.

    Well after all my effort to find/get an inexpensive well functioning Linux notebook mine just died for no apparent reason

    Yeah i need an already spun ISO aswell. Windows managed to mess up my partitions and now I need a bootable usb to fix it, but I don’t have any iso.

    If I read this linux versions horror stories here I fear the even win 10 is the smaller evil regarding having a working  pc. Now even the Jumpers commit suicide when deprived of win10 (sorry brad).

    I wish people would put the same effort in, to find a way got bring a good working win 7 to the Jumper.

    Need Help?

    WiFi isn’t working with this distro on my EZbook 3s, Manjaro also isn’t working. The WLAN adapter is Realtek RTL8723B (0bda:b720). I have searched and some people got it working but in Ubuntu based distros, nothing for Arch. Does someone got it working on a 3s?

    Please keep in mind that the Apollo lake is build for win 10 only.
    Even in my Bios is a win 7 OS option it is not possible.
    The intel hardware has some build in nasty surprises what you can counter by external usb devices (wifi, bt, soud, touchpad/mouse etc.There are very few people who got it working but just a certain distro under just a specific Jumper version.
    If you want to linux, shop for an ultrabook with linux installed already.

    Or do it like I did, prevent windows from updating anything, then rip out everything what bugs you and put a win7 OS look and feel over it. This way you have a modern OS working under the hood with win7 handling, no spying, no telemetry and I never saw even a single advertising or had a single crash because of unwanted remote installation.
    I tried all the other  ways, for the Apollo lake this is the best workable for me, since I am back in control ans not MS. (see link below)

    Please help me. I followed your instructions exactly. But when I reboot into refind, the screen just pops up the logo jumper and nothing happens. I had to go to the BIOS and override the Windows Boot Manager to get into Windows 10.
    I tried several times and failed. I plan to install dual boot Windows 10 and Phoenix OS.
    Thanks you @Brad

    I disagree completely.  My notebook was working great for two months with dual-boot Win10/Manjaro.  The reason it failed is something went bad in the hardware (so probably I just had bad luck).  There are LOTS of people using Linux on this and many other Apollo Lake notebooks.  The problem is support of the Grub boot manager used with Linux (and why the rEFInd boot manager works perfectly). And I think this is an issue of the device’s BIOS not supporting Grub.  These Notebook makers just don’t care about Linux so they don’t test it or modify the BIOS to support it.

    Is yours the v4 of the Jumper Ezbook 3 Pro?  If so, probably you did something wrong in the installation steps.  Make a rEFInd USB boot drive and try to boot from that and if so, see if it gives you the boot options/buttons for both Windows and Linux.  If only Windows, then your Linux install was not correct.  Did you install Linux to the same or different drive and partition of your Windows?
