Install Ubuntu Dell Venue 8 Pro
DOWNLOAD ===== https://byltly.com/2t7dzp
I worked on getting windows 7 32bit to boot all day, I tried some with windows 7 64bit but stopped because dell has no 64bit drivers for the venue 8 pro. There is no use trying to install windows 7 so don't even try. It is clear this device is made for windows 8 32bit only. If some one can even get Linux to boot I will be shocked, I've had zero luck. Some one prove me wrong? :emotion-15:
You really can't boot a 64-Bit operating system on the Dell Venue 8 Pro, you can only boot a 32-Bit Uefi operating system, so you can't run windows 7 32-Bit because it does not support Uefi and you can't run windows 7 64-Bit because it only supports 32-Bit with Uefi support. If we had legacy boot mode to enable then yes I think we could boot any operating system installer 32-Bit or 64-Bit, keep asking dell for it in the forums and they may just decide to give us legacy boot mode in a bios update, the more users ask the more likely they will listen.
how do you reset bios for dell venue 8 pro, i try to update the bios of my venue 8 pro and suddenly shutdown due to maybe battery drain, after charging it I try to power on and it was no longer working even i press it for more than a minute it just blink the orange led when pressing the power button and i noticed that it emit heat at the back even no sign on screen
Hellobuddy I installed live lubuntu, the screen is stretched, I can't see the taskbar or catalogs on the left, only the inscription lubuntu on the right is visible on the screenainol mini pc 2, chinese shit not working on any linux :(
There is a long delay between booting and anything being displayed on low powered devices and between the first 'try' or 'install' screen and the actual desktop being displayed. I'd recommend only trying Lubuntu on very low powered devices as Ubuntu may be too resource hungry.
Thanks to isorespin, I revived a Lenovo Miix 3-8 tablet (with the notorious Z3735F Bay Trail) in good hardware condition, but very underpowered and ran Windows 8+ badly. Kubuntu 20.04 is installed and quite fluid on this device. Wifi, BT, multi-touch, all work. Sound works through the internal speaker and through bluetooth. On-screen keyboard works during Wayland session. Headphones, mic, and cameras do not appear to work at all. I found this discussion: "Plasma Mobile Test ISO for Windows Tablets x86_64 w/ 32bit UEFI Support". Strangely isorespin does not work with the current plasma mobile testing iso at neon/images/mobile/current/ and exits with error early in the process. Isorespin works fine with the regular KDE neon, however. Is the mobile version basically incompatible somehow?
You could try the above Ubuntu "Atom" ISO and compare with the above Lubuntu "Atom" both as LiveUSBs. You might find the responsiveness better with Lubuntu as you only have 2GB RAM. Finally you could then respin the distro of your choice and use as a comparison again as a LiveUSB and decide which to finally install and use.
From this ( -ng/product-support/product/dell-venue-8-pro/drivers) it seems you have Qualcomm Atheros Communications, Inc. AR6004 NWF WLAN wifi and according to this ( ) ath6kl is now part of wireless kernel tree and looking at the config from here ( -focal.git/tree/debian.master/config/config.common.ubuntu?h=Ubuntu-5.4.0-37.41) shows that the driver is enabled as a module CONFIG_ATH6KL which is confirmed from here ( -updates/amd64/linux-modules-5.4.0-37-generic/download) that shows:CONFIG_ATH6KL=mCONFIG_ATH6KL_SDIO=mCONFIG_ATH6KL_USB=mso you should be 'good to go'. What does a 'dmesg' show immediately after booting (use 'pastebinit' or similar to post a link to it)?
It seems the firmware is missing from /lib/firmware. You need to download the drivers from -ng/product-support/product/dell-venue-8-pro/drivers (Dell Wireless 1538 WiFi/Bluetooth Driver) and then extract two of the files (ar6004v3_0fw.bin and boardDatav3_0.bin) and then copy them with new names to into a new directory in /lib/firmware i.e.sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/ath6k/AR6004/hw3.0sudo cp ar6004v3_0fw.bin /lib/firmware/ath6k/AR6004/hw3.0/fw-5.binsudo cp boardDatav3_0.bin /lib/firmware/ath6k/AR6004/hw3.0/bdata.binI'm guessing that the rename of 'ar6004v3_0fw.bin' is 'fw-5.bin' based on Qualcomm's github ( -firmware/tree/master/ath6k/AR6004/hw3.0). If those files don't work you could try the github ones by:cd /lib/firmware/ath6k/AR6004/hw3.0sudo rm fw-5.bin bdata.binsudo wget -firmware/raw/master/ath6k/AR6004/hw3.0/fw-5.binsudo wget -firmware/raw/master/ath6k/AR6004/hw3.0/bdata.binEither way you will need to reboot to get wifi to work. Alternatively you can try reloading the wifi module with:sudo rmmod -f ath6kl_sdiosudo modprobe ath6kl_sdioand see if that works.
I had tried Ubuntu 18.04 on my old RCA Cambio about a year a go but never could get wifi to work...I tried your Lubuntu 20.04 .iso and everything works from a LiveUSB! I have to rotate the display but that's no biggie...Reading your documentation about 'Resizing the persistence partition' is confusing as the 2 screenshots appear to be the same file, is resizing really needed?To do an actual install is it better to do it from the GRUB menu or after booting?Also is it safe to do OS updates after installing or will it wipe out any mods you made?Thank you for all your time/effort on this!
Yes sir the documentation is clearer, thank you.I replaced Windows on my RCA Cambio with Lubuntu but the battery life is noticeably shorter, I installed TLP but haven't noticed much improvement.I noticed the same issue with my laptop when I installed Ubuntu.
Hello! I'm french, my english is very bad...I will try ; I've installed ubuntu 20.04 lts in my computer : (schneider SCL141 CTP Intel Atom). When I start my computer, it's all right except the sound : it is very bad, loud when ubuntu starts and sometimes when I works... If somebody speaks french, I will write my problem in french : J'ai un ordinateur schneider SCL 141 CTP sur lequel j'ai supprimé windows 10 car beaucoup trop gourmand... J'ai installé ubuntu 20.04 LTS. En résumé, tout fonctionne très bien sauf le son : au démarrage, le haut-parleur "hurle" pendant quelques secondes puis de temps à autre lorsque je travaille dessus. J'aimerais vraiment corriger ce problème...Comment faire? A l'aide! Help!!Merci d'avance!Ludovic S
Hi,I am trying to install on a IRULU Walknbook W21 the respin version of Lubuntu 20.04.1 ( I have tried both your respin as well mine with only the --atom and -u option ) and all semms to work fine except wifi. The wifi chip is a rtl8723bs. I can see all the hot-spots but when I try to connect to mine it doesn't work ( unassociated and unautenticated ). The strange thing is that all works fine with the ubuntu version ( the gnome one ), I can connect to the same hot-spot ( my home net ).
I was able to get Ubuntu 64-bit installed and running by following the workaround detailed on -ubuntu-or-other-linux-on-the-asus-transformer-book-t100/ but after careful review, it seems that simply adding a 32-bit grubia32.efi or equivalent to the 64-bit livecd alongside the 64-bit version of the loader, half the problem is solved. Then it's just a matter of making grubia32 a default part of the distribution alongside the 64-bit version. UEFI is designed to load the appropriate .efi for the expected architecture, and because these low-cost devices ship with 32-bit Windows 8.1 to save space on the device by eliminating WoW64, the UEFI on these devices expects a 32-bit bootloader. Linux (including Ubuntu 14.04 and possibly earlier) supports booting a 64-bit OS from a 32-bit bootloader.
It was able to install ubuntu until the bootloader part. It installed a 64bit EFI bootloader but that wouldn't work. I then tried adding the same efi I used on the livecd but I just get stuck at grub when I select it via rEFInd. I attempted to follow some instructions online to load linux from grub but was unsuccessful.
This is a very serious issue, at least for me. I bought Asus Aspire Switch 10 E and I've been fighting to install Linux to it. This has been the closest one as a solution -ubuntu-or-other-linux-on-the-asus-transformer-book-t100/ , but bootia32.efi is a one issue. I can't make a proper one because I have 12.04 in current laptop (because it is old and due to the graphics I can't update it). I tried also one mentioned behind the link Anyway, I was able to get to the phase where in GRUB you manually define the kernel and then you boot the machine. Everything started promising, but then it stops to error message "mount: can't find root in /etc/fstab". I checked the fstab and it looked OK. But when I checked the /dev directory there were no mmcblk-devices, only in boot-USB had them. 2b1af7f3a8
