    Could not get the SD card reader to work, found that I could no longet boot to BIOS as well so have gone back to Win.7. Pity in some ways as 10 worked better when the computer was used in tablet mode.

    Give W10 a year or so and they might fix all the bugs in it but I dough it since M$ think everyone should go out and buy a new laptop so we can run there junk OS. Yes I do hate W10 but they do need to wake up and understand not everone has $500.00 + to go out and buy a new laptop every couple years just to stay up to date. They have no clue...

    The SD card reader bug has apparently been about since Win.8 so it should have been fixed by now, and A new Toughbook is rather more than $500 and as they are built to last I do not see why I should get a new one because Microsoft thinks so. Pity linux cant run on toughbooks without one being a programmer, which I am most certainly not.

    It seems that it quite often locks people out of booting to bios on laptops.

    It's impossible for OS to lock BIOS. There is an option in BIOS like fast boot mode, where you have to press F2 key before power key. But in normal boot mode I can assure you it's a problem of user. He is just too slow for CF-19 and Win10 :))

    Better screen, CPU etc. :))

    I think it's off topic for this FAQ.

    I confirm Linux works well :)
    My home router/server is Centos 6.7 on CF-T5. And another one has Xubuntu installed. I'm not a programmer, I'm "ordinary housewife" :))

    It seems that Windows 10 has a fast boot mode built in. and to get to BIOS you have to go to settings, update and security, advanced start up which takes you to a special start up screen, just read this today but as I no longer have 10 installed. There is also something to do with the fast shut down option which windows goes to by default this in reality puts the computer into a deep sleep so you never actually boot from scratch, hate to think how long Win. 10 takes to boot and shut down with this switched off as it takes longer than Win.7 anyway.

    Seems to work just fine in a normal CF-19.
