I'm interested in this. I'm pretty handy with Linux, just haven't started looking at how to get it started on this device. I'd love to have some basic guidance.

Re: Ubuntu Linux on NS-P1W7100

apologies for the necropost but how might i ask did you boot to a linux drive? i cannot get this to boot from usb at all no matter what. have disabled secure boot entirely, fastboot is off as is quiet. boot order is set to boot from usb dive. doesnt matter which drive i use or what distro since as soon as the pc restarts it seems to be resetting the bios to boot from windows as soon as i choose "save and restart" from the exit menu. am i just missing something simple? please let me know.

For some strange reason it was decided to make a 64-bit computer with a 32-bit firmware,  you need the 32 bit efi files.

If you are installing ubuntu download the64 bit version, inject the 32 bit efi and grub files then install.

Re: Ubuntu Linux on NS-P1W7100

There didn't seem to be much interest in the thread so I stopped working on it

The power is working in kernel version > 4.12 if I remember correctly.

There was some development on a generic driver for the silead touchscreen but there was a problem with initialization that kept the working patch from being included in the kernel.

There are other drivers that work for the touchscreen but they require that the firmware be extracted from the windows driver.

If others are interested in testing I would consider putting together images.
