Herobox - Linux Mint

Herobox is a wonderfull machine I appreciate a lot!
But how can I install Linux Mint in dual boot with Win10?
It is impossible to boot on Linux, neither on a USB KEY nor on a USB CDROM.

Why do you say it is impossible?
Can you see the usb stick in the Bios?
Can you try to boot off the usb stick if you see it in the bios?

Can @Management confirm weather the Bios is 32bit or 64bit ?

I will be happy to help you will linux but I don’t really own the hardware.

I see it have been 6days without a reply so I hope you have it installed already.

Well… I slightly disagree with you.

After a time of disappointment, I tried other USB keys. The third one has been correctly recognized at boot. Linux Mint 20 starts normally and then I have successfully installed Linux Mint release 20 64 bits Cinnamon, in dual boot with the pre-installed Windows 10.
It is pretty pleasent to use both.

So it has not been a waste of time. Thanks to Chuwi’s helpdesk who pays attention to my situation.


Where’s that? I am not from chuwi, I am just a community helper who tries to help users get linux on their devices while I don’t even own any chuwi device lol.

Good to hear that you got it sorted, yes some usb stick cannot be recognized in bios or bootable.

Enjoy your linux device.
