Delete “splash” and replace it with: Then press F10 to boot. Click the “Install Ubuntu” desktop icon to install Ubuntu permanently.The partitioning scheme you choose is up to you — but you will need to preserve the EFI partition, so don’t just partition the entire disk for Ubuntu.Now, insert the USB stick and reboot to the firmware (BIOS).
First, the path to the kernel: Here, (hd2, gpt5) refers to the fifth partition on the third disk (Partition numbering begins at 1 and disk numbering begins at 0).
This will vary depending on how yo uinstalled and your T100 model.
Once there, disable Secure Boot, then visit the boot options, and ensure the USB stick is the first in the list.
Press F10 to save settings, and after a few seconds you will be in the GRUB bootloader. This will reboot the computer again, but this time you will have the laptop’s native resolution (rather than being stuck at 800×600 from the “bios”).
Fortunately, grub has good auto-completion features, so you can hit twice as you type, and grub will list possible completions for you — just keep trying until you see the various vmlinuz kernels.
The root=/dev/mmcblk0p5 will also depend on the partition you installed to. Unfortunately this can’t be auto-completed, so if you can’t remember your partition setup, you’ll need to try by trial and error. Then you need to specify the location of your initrd. However internal wifi on the T100 isn’t terribly reliable under Linux yet.
Open /etc/default grub in a text editor: Congratulations!
you should now be able to boot/reboot directly to the Ubuntu desktop! The best way to improve hardware support further is to use the latest development branches of the kernel.
We’ll also compile in a new experimental feature for accessing 32-bit EFI services from a 64-bit system, as we need that for tools like efibootmgr to work.
