Installing Ubuntu 13.04 on a ThinkPad Helix
The ThinkPad Helix is shipped with Windows 8 Pro. Dual boot installation is possible.
- external CD-RW drive
- minimum 800 MB CD-ROM
- burn Image
- Disable Fast Boot (german only: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Dualboot)
- Disable Secure Boot
- start with alternative device
Some things worked out of the box:
- basic needs as both batteries, keyboard, touchpad, TrackPoint,
After basic installation you can't boot Windows from GRUB, temporary workaround
and proceed with recommended repair to fix the problem.
F1 to F6 worked out of the box.
