It is clear that the computer does not recognize the pendrive. I do not know Linux but when this happens in Windows it is because the Pen is not compatible or because the properties are not recognized to recognize it: format, name assigned to Pen, Windows WINPE, or incorrect boot files. If you say it is recognized on other computers I format it to Pen from the tablet itself and then paste the files for the boot on Linux.
Okay, please tell me what is the procedure to make a windows bootable pendrive.
I already made a windows bootable pendrive (don't know if I followed correct method or not), but when I used it in other computer it was working and booting from other computer but not in chuwi lapbook 15.6
My chuwi lapbook 15.6 came to me with a pre-installed windows 10, definitely the manufacturer or the vendor had used some or the other method to install windows, I want to know what are the other methods of installing the operating system? defuinitely there is no internal cd/ dvd rom so if I use a usb pluggable external cd/dvd rom drive then my assumption is that I will get the same non-booting problem that I am encountering currently with my usb pendrive
what are the other proven methods of installing an operating system on chuwi lapbook 15.6
what the manufacturer used to install windows 10 ?
Problem is only with Linux. My pendrives are becoming windows bootable and they are booting up windows setup utility without any issue.
Conclusion as of now is that the Linux bootable usb is just not working with chuwi lapbook 15.6. I tried ubuntu, puppy, fatdog, manjaro etc. None of these are working. Is there any compatible linux distro for chuwi lapbook which I can install. I hate windows, I purchased this laptop as it's cheap and i thought i will later install linux on it.
not that it helps you much but I've booted ubuntu 17.10 live image from usb on my 15.6 without any issues - i used the F7 method and selected the appropriate uefi for the usb. . I created my live usb using Startup Disk Creator but I've also used Etcher and UNetbootin successfully.
If you do get your usb to boot I can recommend a tool called isorespin which you can use to make your ubuntu iso compatible with the apollo lake chipset.
