    Thank you for going into detail here. I especially appreciate your instructions regarding the WIn8 pro install. Am I reading this correctly that you cannot install Ubuntu on this laptop? Has anybody found a workaround?

    You don't need 2 seperate discs. Just make a ei.cfg with the code from the OP on one install disk. It should be fine.

    Did you ever get a chance to see if an intel adapter would work in place of the atheros .... in order to facilitate widi ? also, this computer didn't come with bluetooth....at least i can't find it and the 'turn on blue tooth" is greyed out out in settings. is there a way to add blue tooth after the fact, other than with a dongle. thanks again for all the help you've put up for this computer.

    I am interested in this as well! I am a long time linux user and would really like to install Arch Linux if I get this laptop. I'm looking to order today.

    Hi all,
    firt of all i want to thank Mifune for the great guide !!!! i really appretice the work you do ... really .
    I don't wont to remove my 24 ssd but i want to install a normal 2.5 SSD in actual HDD bay, and move the 750 Gb 5400 rpm to a caddy on dvd place. The question is if i can restore the system by the normal procedure (press F9 on boot and do a reset factory default ) or do a fresh new install from a dvd.

    Thank you

    Thanks for your great job. It is very useful for us.

    Can you give me some advice about how to install Win 7 Pro into this notebook ?
