C0D427859339dCan’t install Ubuntu, can he use a computer?
That damn thing installs its self.

In the lucky multiverse you exist in yes.
A week or two, or three trying to figure out why it doesn't..
I did get there in the end, which included figuring out which of the 30 different video cards I had, the OS actually liked..
That guy, probably lives in my universe !
SecFreak5924339dYeah there's this weird hardware problem that is pretty easy to reproduce but still inconsistent with Linux. It's called a K2C error and it can cause any number of issues including failure to install a fucking self installing system-- I mean, install a very complex and configurable system..."

I've got a laptop like that, only works if you stop Windows updating to the latest NVIDIA drivers !
I've also a desktop PC with the same, don't update driver issue, but it hasn't got a built in graphics card thingy, it just has multi-able monitors that are often so hard to get working !
It's really really hard to find everything that works perfectly with everything else.
Even if you read all the reviews, and choose the most reliable, liked product, you can still end up finding out a few months/years down the road its got some kind of issue with it that no one ever fixes !
Well, sometimes folk do produce their own custom BIOS to solve some issues ! (Like with my machine, without a custom BIOS it wouldn't run Windows 10.. it can run Windows 7, but not Windows 8.1 ...)
It seems everything has problems.
But then, I'm the guy that got called in to fix things that everyone else couldn't !
So I got to see a lot of, problems..
Oddly no matter what I buy, I always have a ton of problems getting things to work !
But then, I do use things for more than 5 minutes, which might explain why, so I discover if they don't really work reliably..
He says, looking at that Promise RAID controller that never worked correctly..
