    Since you got it from HIDEvolution, you should ask them to remote flash the BIOS for you.

    Mine is running both windows and Linux without any problem with grub as my main bootloader.

    @Mr. Fox Still running the Linux Mint/Windows 10 dual boot with GRUB as primary boot loader with Prema bios; having no issues thus far.

    Thanks, I am aware of this one but I just wanted a single power supply solution that would work on the go and for that anything that would give me at least 280W (a single brick) would be fine.

    The Eurocom is an actively cooled solution that I am sure would be nice to have for benchmarking and other uses with a bigger than 280W power draw as it is easier to drag around than two separate power supplies plus cabling but for me it would not fit my needs. I am looking at this kind of laptop because I want a quiet mobile workstation with lots of RAM and lots of cores, plenty of potential storage and a big screen and I do not want it to be heavier and more difficult to use than necessary when I take it on a trip.

    So please Clevo allow us to at least use the X170KM with a single brick and without artificial limitations!

    Can confirm this. Running POP_OS! and Windows 10 dual boot with no issues on mine.

    Honestly, you're gonna want a different laptop then. How are you going to power the CPU and GPU with a single PSU under a workstation scenario? Those components could EASILY go above 230/280W.

    If you haven't already figured it out, Lutris works well for running Cinebench (identified as Windows 7).

    Thats cool, the 780w power supply really isn't that heavy, it is less weight than carrying 2 of the 280w power bricks and less bulk to carry around. I love it and 780w is more than enough power for a loaded x170.
