I recommend that you first disable automatic boot repair from a console in Windows: bcdedit /set {current} recoveryenabled No Try now if that has solved your problem. If not, you may have to manually set rEFInd. I had to do it in my Dell pc following the instruccions in the rEFInd website, in the "Alternative Naming Options / Renaming Files Manually" ...

Loki has compatibility with touchscreen, at least in my case (Asus X550C). Just like you, I have Windows 10 installed along with Elementary. When I was in Freya, touchscreen was not supported and didn't work properly, but recently since I upgraded to Loki it works like a charm, just like in Windows. So yes, install Loki and you will be able to use the ...

It will work however you'll probably need to update the kernel and some packages since that cpu model is pretty new. If you want to be completely sure that it works, look for a laptop that comes with Ubuntu 18.04 or lower preinstalled. Those will surely work with elementary. There are companies like System76, Purism or Dell that offer that kind of laptops.

Boot your laptop, when the grub menu appears press e. It will show a lot of text, look for the words quiet splash and add nomodeset between them. Like this: quiet nomodeset splash. Press F10 and it'll boot. Now you need to go into AppCenter and Install the graphic driver from the Updates tab. You can also execute sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall if you ...

Elementary OS (as most other Linux distros nowadays) comes with a Live Image. That means you can "burn" the ISO image to an USB Stick (hint: use the programm "Etcher" for that), plug that stick into your laptop and boot off from said USB stick.

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 5578 2in1, with Windows 10 and Loki, and it works ok as a tablet. I don't have auto rotation, but solved it with ScreenRotator. OnBoard works lovely, as an on-screen keyboard, too.

Not necessarily. I have tried Loki with two different 2in1 laptops. On one, a Dell 3000 series, the touchscreen works, but rotation is buggy. It always rotates into the wrong orientation, so it is totally unusable. I also have an Asus Vivobook, and on that one, the rotation doesn't work at all, but at least it will orient to the normal, laptop direction. ...

The Realtek wireless cards have a sleep mode to save battery when you don't use the net conecction. The vendor has a poor support to Linux drivers, so you can try to disable the sleep mode with the next trick. Open a terminal and execute: echo "options rtl8723be fwlps=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf Reboot your system. If it don't solved ...
