Just putting this out here....any status on Linux on the HP Stream 7? I've gone through the other threads here...the end results was Ubuntu Mate working only with kb/mouse, but no touchscreen, which kind if defeated the point of a tablet. Now that Ubuntu 15.10 is out, has anyone tried this?
Not yet. I guess there are not enough HP Stream 7 tinkerers out there. Here's the biggest problem. How do you go about creating a bootable device or network setup to allow the alternative OS to get booted? I tried a USB drive with Windows 10 x64, no dice. The other option is a PXE boot server hosting the image you want to install witha microUSB to Ethernet dongle. I don't have the patience to obtain such a dongle to test, but if someone else does, I'd like to hear what they found.
