Titel: Installing onto UEFI 32 bit ThinkPad Tablet 2  BeitragVerfasst am: 05.03.2014, 09:30 Uhr

Hi!
I have a Thinkpad Tablet 2 (32 bit Atom/Bay Trail tablet PC), was hoping to install Linux on it. I tried some other distros and failed. Googling seemed to reveal that this UEFI 32-bit is the problem. And according to Lenovo it's a lost case:
https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-s ... a-p/994207

But some debate on Ubuntu forums and other forums led me to believe it should be possible still. And I stumbled upon a comment thread on Phoronix http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthre ... untu-Linux also saying it should work in Kanotix.
So I decided to try Kanotix for the first time, visited the IRC channel, downloaded the latest nightly: kanotix32-acritox-nightly-140304a-LXDE.iso

Made USB stick as described here:
http://kanotix.acritox.com/content/live-usb-stick

I have disabled UEFI secure boot and I select restart while holding Shift, then select to boot from USB. ... And the USB drive _is_ accessed, but it still just boots into Windows.
And since I haven't found a way to disable the Lenovo logo/get a verbose BIOS screen, I have no idea what's going on ...

Any hints? Smilie

Well that seems to be tricky. We could try to Start a 32 bit gummiboot loader as first step. Or can you select EFI shell in your firmware?

Haven't found any EFI shell anywhere. Working on trying to get Gummiboot to work. Figured I should get a working USB keyboard, just ordered one. Will be testing more then. Smilie

Btw, the ISO images since 6th march should use the correct 32 bit uefi executeable name.

Yep, they now boot into GRUB, and having a working keyboard now, I can select entries as well.
So far I've tried the regular EN entry, the gfxdetect entry and the failsafe entry, and they all just stop after:
Loading Linux ...
Loading initial ramdisk ...

Then it seems to hang, Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't respond either ... I should probably try to get some more verbosity ... I tried editing the entry, removing quiet and changing splash to nosplash, but it made no difference.
Not sure what to try next ...

You can remove the splash and quiet entry and add maybe

noefi
