Dell Latitude 7490
The PC is well recognized on Debian Stretch and Buster (Early 2019).
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.
?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).
- Requires the non-free package iwlwifi:
apt install firmware-iwlwifi
