Linux on the HP Stream tablet

HP Recommended

 Oops, this was a reply on a closed thread...

 

Please delete, thanks.

 

I can boot 64 bit distro's with the bootia file but no luck with the

ubuntu-mate-17.10-beta2-desktop-i386.iso.

 

I carefully did all those things u have written on first page but i don't get a usb boot option at startup.

 

I write those bootable 64 bits distro's with rufus but the 32 bits disto's dont work with rufus (GTP partition) so i use unetbootin-windows-655. Could that be the problem?

I have not tried the beta2 releases, it seems like they still should boot okay though.  I use Unetbootin on Ubuntu to create the USB so it seems it should work okay on Windows.  You might try booting the USB in another computer to make sure it works and disable secure boot on the Stream if you have not already.

FYI, there is a new thread started for Ubuntu 18.04 on the Stream tablet.
