I just bought this last week. I love the small size. It’s compact and portable. I just hate that it came with only 2 USB ports and no ethernet port at all. I appreciate the additional M.2 SSD 2240 so I bought one 128GB from TS.
I booted up, by default it gave me an old (factory default) Windows 10. I directly update it to the latest Windows 10. So far, so good.
I wanted to install Ubuntu 20.04. So, I did that on my new SSD. Too bad, the sound driver wasn’t recognized. I went back to Windows 10 but this time. I did a clean install of the latest ISO. Nice, it has digital license activation. +1
However, I got a few unrecognized drivers, same as reported on this forum. You can find the threads all across this website. No solution.
I went back into the BIOS. There’s this choose OS selection. So, I selected Linux, saved the setting and reboot.
To my surprise, the POST (CHUWI logo) didn’t show up despite the blue power LED. No, don’t tell me to check my HDMI cable crap, there’s nothing wrong with it. No signal on my monitor and it goes to sleep.
I read about removing the CMOS battery but I don’t have the hexagonal stub screwdriver at the moment.
What the fish? I realized that I bricked my LarkBox Pro. Which idiot in CHUWI released this exact BIOS setting that can be changed thus bricking my device?
HOW DO I BOOT TO MY BIOS AGAIN? Don’t tell me that RMA crap or return policy. While I understand messing with BIOS could be dangerous but you guys must at least QC the whole damn system before selling it to the market.
WHAT NOW?! I’m so pissed up.
