HPEnvy 15 x360 Linux Installation problem

HP Recommended
HP Envy 15 x360
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble installing linux in my laptop. After I select Insall or Live try, the screen just goes black and freezes. Nothing shows up.  I've tried to boot Kali in Legacy mode and it says 'System wakeup disabled by ACPI'. Same thing happened with every distro I tried.

 

Any suggestions would be great.

 

Thanks

Beeshal

Hi there @_beeshal,

Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel. I understand you are having an issue with Linux. I will be glad to help you.

 

Hp does not support Linux on this computer.  I would suggest Reset your PC.

 

Please keep me informed of how things went.

Hi @_beeshal,

 

Resetting to factory default would put back to windows.

 

There maybe a way of setting up for Linux, but not supported by HP.  For any issue with Linux you need to contact Linux.

Hi

 

To begin with you need to use a live distro that has lots of options.   http://distrowatch.com/

 

One of the best for booting is probably Knoppix, http://www.knoppix.org/ and it has a coupla screens of options.

 

 http://knoppix.net/wiki3/index.php?title=Cheat_Codes  -   Ususally F2 & F3, and you type something like...

 

knoppix64 acpi=off  lang=uk

 

WARNING WILL ROBINSON;

 

Your machine may have a secure boot option to prevent any other software to install as an OS.

If you change your partitions size or order you may lose any recovery partition, SO HAVE A WORKING RECOVERY METHOD.

 

A live distro runs in ram, and does not touch your hard disk drive, except to view your data.  It will NOT write to your HDD.

Except if you choose to install / or do so yourself.

 

If in doubt please ask.
