Chinese manufacturers' fresh mobile phones arrived at the stores with a set of definitions that can not be identified by Linux distributions, but it seems that this is not a deliberate trend against the open source world
The sub-forum dedicated to the Linux operating system within the largest forum community in the United States, RADIT, filled up This week hundreds of complaints from users of Lenovo's popular UltraBook series. Users who have tried to install the various operating system distributions have found that they are prevented from doing so,SSD Preconfigured in RAID mode that Linux does not recognize. The option to set it in AHCI mode and solve the problem also has not appeared in the AH-BIOS Of computers.
The problem appeared on Microsoft's signature computers, that is, laptop computers supplied by Microsoft with a "clean" version of Microsoft Windows. Some users have claimed that Lenovo has actively blocked the installation of Linux distributions on these models under its agreement with Microsoft. A user who identified himself as a "Lenovo product expert" responded to one of the negative reviews on the product page in Best Buy, claiming that such an agreement does exist and that the computers are designed to run the Windows, Adding fuel to the fire.
Neowin site turn The two companies asked for explanations. Lenovo responded: "Lenovo is leading the trend in the industry of setting up SSD drives in certain RAID configuration products to improve system performance. Lenovo does not intentionally block customers from using other operating systems on its products, and is committed to providing Authority and training To install Linux on a variety of products .. Let me emphasize: Yoga 900 was designed for Windows 10 and is not on Lenovo's supported product list. "
A little later, the site also received Microsoft's response: "Lenovo recently set up drives SSD In some products in a RAID configuration, which requires further steps to support all system features. Recent claims about software installation problems related toMicrosoft Signature is inaccurate. "
When it became clear that the theory used by the users about an agreement between the companies was incorrect, the saga was signed and the subject in "Rit" was locked. One of my employees Lenovo Noted in the official support forums that the problem has been transferred to the company's development team, and that repair will take place in the coming weeks or months.
