 * Secure Boot: Secure Boot Enable: change to "disabled" since Debian currently doesn't support secure boot.  * Secure Boot: Secure Boot Enable: change to "disabled" since Debian currently doesn't support secure boot. (NOTE: This requires new testing. Buster DOES support secure boot and similar models of computer (eg Dell 5400) will install with it).
 * [[kgoetz |I]] had to manually create a boot record under General -> Boot Sequence - adding a boot option pointed at `EFI/debian/grub64.efi` was enough. I'm not sure how widespread this issue might be or if its due to me turning off SecureBoot (an act which is no longer required with recent installers).

## First say what's the Display adapter model (lspci may help)
## Then explain how to get it working (or just the module used)

Intel video, works out of the box.

== Smart card reader ==
Comes with internal (contacted) card reader and wireless card reader options.

pcsc-tools contains pcsc_scan which can be used to monitor the cards. While I don't have a functioning smart card to test with it has detected other things like a credit card once inserted.

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.

If you need help to get Debian running on your hardware, please have a look at our user support channels where you may find specific channels (mailing list, IRC channel) dedicated to certain types of hardware.

The PC is well recognized on Debian Stretch and Buster (Early 2019).

Important Note

BIOS Settings

You have to change some BIOS settings before you can install Debian. Press F12 again when starting your notebook to get into the BIOS.

  • System Configuration: SATA Operation: change "RAID On" to "AHCI". Without this change, Linux won't find the internal hard disk.
  • Secure Boot: Secure Boot Enable: change to "disabled" since Debian currently doesn't support secure boot. (NOTE: This requires new testing. Buster DOES support secure boot and similar models of computer (eg Dell 5400) will install with it).
  • ?I had to manually create a boot record under General -> Boot Sequence - adding a boot option pointed at EFI/debian/grub64.efi was enough. I'm not sure how widespread this issue might be or if its due to me turning off SecureBoot (an act which is no longer required with recent installers).
