Hi All,

Good Afternoon.

I recently purchased chuwi lapbook 15.6, ever since I am trying to instaall Ubuntu or puppy or some kind of linux on it. The lapbook doesn't come with a cd / dvd drive so the only option for me is to install a linux via a usb pen drive, I tried to put the linux .iso into my usb pendrive using unetbootin software to make my usb pendrive linux bootable. I later tried to change the boot priorities in bios and tried to boot from the usb pendrive but it's just not booting, the usb pendrive doesn't seem to be showing up in the boot priorities menu in the bios. please help in suggesting a solution

Hi All,

Good Afternoon.

Use "Disk" program (Linux) to make the USB.
Select the USB Drive on the Right.
then the 3 cogs button (options)
In the drop down menu select ...Restore partition image
Find the .ISO file and BINGO.
The USB will now boot.

I Used "Ubuntu Mate 17.10" everything works except for sound.
BIOS is set to "Windows 8.1"(other choise is Android). as there is no Linux option.

The headphone jack and the speakers don't work... Yet.
For the Sound - USB Headphones.
"Razer Kraken USB" is my choice.

Have your USB in the Lapbook.
To get into BIOS hold down "ESC" then press Power button.
Goto Boot Menu.  
The USB should be in the list. Use the + key to move it to the top.
F4 = save and exit.
Now you should boot from the USB.
