DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owners would know how get the best out of that hardware.

The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.

Important Note

{X} The nouveau driver fail with this board.
{i} You need to change the configuration from RAID to AHCI in the BIOS to make the SSD visible to the Linux kernel. But it will break dualbooting windows. You might have to update the BIOS for this.
{i} With the Linux kernel 4.x, you need the pci=nomsi to boot
{i} To manage the backlight, you need acpi_backlight=vendor

Configuration

Display

It's a NVIDIA ?GeForce GTX1060, it seem that the nouveau drivre failed with it. The nvidia non-free does support it.

You need to add the acpi_backlight=vendor to the kernel argument to manage the backlight.

Audio

It just work.

Mouse

For now, xorg see the touchpad, but failed to use it.

Power Management

It seem to just work

WiFi

You need the non free firmware firmware-iwlwifi
