I have installed linux Mint on the wintel w8 pro.
Now I am not able to boot on ubuntu. The error message is "ubuntu boot failed".
I look under /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu and see all that:
fbx64.efi fw fwupx64.efi grub.cfg grubx64.efi mmx64.efi shimx64.efi
So now if, boot manager, I ask to boot on file I can go down to the ubuntu folder select grubx64.efi and validate by enter and all works fine from here.
?? Am I missing something ??
I restore default bios settings, and there no unrecoinzned devices, wifi and bt works fine, but windows claims there is no device capaible to play audio, but drivers seams to be propertly installed, any sugestions ?
BIOS reset, take it apart and disconnect battery(bottom part comes out, no screws).
Anyone has drivers for x5-z8350? I still have an image of the original install but one of the drivers casing the ntoskrnl.exe to use a lot of cpu time.... Did a reinstall and the problem is gone but there are a lot of unknown devices in device manager.
So, after a windows update -few days ago, my W8 Pro (windows 10 home 64bit) couldn't boot anymore. Blue screen, can't repair...
I created a usb installation disk and I installed the win 10.
Everything went great, I thought... Now there is no WIFI option, No Audio detected (no Sound, video and game controllers in device manager) and no bluetooth...
I have searched online, I have done hard reset to bios with the battery, but the problems still remain.
Does anyone have the drivers? Has anyone found any solution?
I am not responsible for any damage to your device when you are not sure leave the default Settings.
All Tested and 100% Working.
