Hello everyone, I’m Dom, I’m new here.
Recently purchased a Linx 1010b tablet and would love to know if it’s possible to install PureOS in it.
Here’s the Technical Specifications:
Intel Atom Quad Core Z3735F up to 1.83 GHz processor
10.1-inch 16:9 IPS HD (1280 x 800) with 10 point multi-touchscreen
Integrated Intel HD Graphics
32GB eMMC storage
Front 2 MP and rear 2 MP
Integrated 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0
1 x mini-HDMI, 1 x micro-USB, 1 x microSD slot
Built-in stereo speakers and microphone
7,900 mAh li-ion
610 grams in weight
I’ve been trying to install Linux Mint Mate on it, but having a difficult time.
“It uses the Bay Trail chipset, which has a history of causing frustration when trying to boot Linux, particularly because although it features a 64-bit processor, it uses an EFI system that only operates in 32-bit.” - Ian’s Blog
That and it seems like the current version of Mint (even Ubuntu) has a bug, bootable USBs comes out as “read only” devices which prevents me from putting a copy of Bootia32 in the Boot folder.
So, I recently just found out about PureOS which is exactly what I need and would like to put into the tablet, just wondering if 1) Is it compatible or will it work, 2) will I encounter the same issues as mentioned above?
Any help/advice/recommendations/suggestion would be helpful. Thank you for taking your time.
