Easy check: can ArcaOS be installed on this Lenovo Laptop?
« on: December 05, 2019, 08:15:33 am »
There is a very good and easy test, wether or not ArcaOs can be installed on a Lenovo Laptop.

Till now this has to meet at least three specifications:

- Secure Boot can be turned off

- CSM is still there / Legacy boot

- USB 2.0 support

with this:

Lenovo BIOS Simulator

one can check all this before ordering hardware. That is pretty need.

My observation is, that there is no Lenovo model since the 5th Intel core-i generation, that has inbuild USB 2.0 support. That stresses the need for the USB 3.0 driver.

I attach some pictures for my next hardware test, the Lenovo Yoga 12.

Hi Sigurd.

Thanks for sharing and it is very interesting and smart to use the Lenovo online bios simulator to check for UEFI compatibility mode.
