Linux on HP Pavilion x2 detachable PC 10

I have the same problem too.

Now, after installing Ubuntu 16.10 I have:

 

- the speakers doesn't work;

- the touch pad doesn't recognizes the 2 fingers scroll;

- the battery icon is missing;

- I've not yet tried the micro-SD;

- during installation the MS OS was lost (fortunately this is the least important issue of all);

 

 

is there someone who know how to fix the drivers ?

Have you tried updating? 

 

sudo apt-get update

 

sudo apt-get upgrade

 

If hardware is detected apt-get will install the drivers, presuming they exist in the repos.

If you have a recovery image of the device can you pls share it? I guess I messed up trying to reset the device and erasing everything and now stuck in the "cannot find boot device" error. Looks like I need a recovery image which I never created. It would be very helpful if you could share your recovery image.

For all that have the same problem.

I had the same problem after failed  re-installation of win 10.


Remember I had win 10 upgraded from win 8.1 from within the 8.1 system. Hence my product key 8.1 was converted and registered by microsoft for win 10 before the reinstallation, so my version will automatically be validated.

 

 

do this:
1.download OS system iso ( Win 10 in my case)

2.download rufus

3.make a bootable usb with following specifications

  • partition scheme and target system type: GPT
  • File system: FAT32
  • create bootable disk: iso; and choose the OS system iso


then:

1.start up your X2 and press esc immediately: choose F10 bios setup

2.in system configuration: disable secure boot

3.move usb/CD boot up.

4.save and exit bios

5.restart your X2 with the bootable usb in place.

6.it will fire up.

7.install win 10.

8.when prompted for the product key choose: skip

9.remember: no hardware specific drivers are installed
  so you must download and install fx network driver separately.

Linux on HP Pavilion x2 detachable PC 10

I managed to install multiple linux OS in this laptop, MX linux, and debian were the ones i lost more time with

but right now im with debian 9 and i sorted the problems you will face after installing

being not having wireless and audio drivers

so what you need to do, or what i recomend

get a phone with usb internet sharing, and when you enter in debian

if you want install sudo, to do that open the console and type su, put your password and you will be as root

type:

apt install sudo

after installing sudo type:

nano /etc/sudoers

 

that will open that file and you will need to add underneed root or wherever you want this line

username ALL=(ALL) ALL #replace the username with the user you want to have sudo

after that press ctrl x to close the file, type Y to save it and press enter to finish it

sudo installed and working just reboot

 

for wireless drivers, install git:

sudo apt install git

then open this link if you want to check it https://github.com/hadess/rtl8723bs

and get the clone adress and type in console

sudo git clone https://github.com/hadess/rtl8723bs.git

enter the cloned folder

cd ./rtl8723bs

and build the project

for that you need to type

make

make install

ps: if it does not work you probably need to install the build-essentials to be able to use make

reboot again and you should have your wireless working now, connect to your internet via wireless or keep the usb connection

 

for the audio all you need is to install the firmware-intel-sound pack, for that type

sudo apt install firmware-intel-sound

reboot again, and you have debian, with audio and wireless working

have fun...

ps: finish all that today after months looking for ways to make linux working in that laptop, so idk if i will find other problems with other drivers or something like that, but at least i got what i need for now working

finaly i can mess around with linux everywhere now 😉
