I’m having an issue trying to install any Linux-based OS on the UBook Pro. As a note, I’ve also owned a Lapbook Plus and Lapbook Pro, so I’m familiar with the fact that getting Linux to install can be an issue. I am NOT having the problem with the single underscore causing a failure to boot. I’m aware that means that the boot from the USB failed to initialize.
Instead, the issue is that I get to a grub-like page usually to do the install, but then the install fails before I even get to the UI to select options such as partitioning, formatting, etc. I have tried to install Deepin, Zorin OS, and Ubuntu, all without success. I tried the last 2 OSes because they boast universal support, so I’m shocked that this failure has happened.
I wasn’t able to take screenshots, but I took pictures on my phone of what happens with the Deepin installation. It basically keeps pasting everything between the “Timeout waiting for hardware cmd interrupt” over and over again every few seconds until the machine suddenly powers off. I know that some of these come pre-loaded with Linux, so a dual boot should indeed be possible. Anyone have any ideas on how to make it happen? Deepin is my most preferred distro btw, so if it has to be distro-specific in the solution, deepin is the one haha.
I uploaded the files to imgur since I took them on the phone but am using the UBook Pro to type this message. The images can be found here:
Anyone have any ideas?
