Thanks for the thread I have allready read all of that.
Also downloaded the Lenovo bootable diagnostics and run all tests everything passed.
32bit working fine just not 64bit.
I have now managed to install linux mint 19.1 (64bit) as a dual boot on another computer all absolutly fine just a...
Thanks poorguy tried all that had to before I could even get it to redcognise the usb stick!
May give up on the lenovo. Does anyone have experience of dual boot? I have a 64bit system (win 7.0) can I have this as a dual boot with LINUX? I have 50G disk space and 2g RAM
I have tried that link but nothing of help, I had seen that before I think.
One thing I will do before ZZZZ is to try once again and watch all the messages as carefully as I can. just in case as the thought in my mind is a memory fault at the high end but it has been so long...
Neither installed at all but thankfully windows 10 is gone as UBUNTU 32 bit does easily install. It has even removed the rather disconcerting message that "Windows Has Not Loaded Correctly" when I did the first install!
This maybe a silly question but here goes. What is the difference between 32bit and 64 bit is it the address bus? If so when I install a 32bit system on my machine does it ever access the higher memory addresses?
Just a thought. I have run the memory checks when I see them all came back Ok.
In just five minutes installed UBUNTU from this ISO ubuntu-16.04.5-desktop-i386.iso which is a 32bit one I think and all up and running. When I try with this one ubuntu-18.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso it fails every time?
Must be something to do with the Lenovo!
I got on to the Lenovo support site and that passed me on to another site where the ideapad was listed as supporting i386 64bit. I admit to being a little confused as I thought i386 would mean 32bit?
The question remains is there a 64bit version of LINUX that the Lenovo Ideapad320 15AST will...
Just found out that the computer I have running UBUNTU 16.04 is a 64 bit so trying to install latest ubuntu 18.04.1LTS 64 bit on this machine and get very similar problems. The install works all the way through to the restart now window I remove the USB and click restart now and it tells me I...
New computer for christmas lenovo ideapad 320. UBUNTU 18 installed but crashes. Loaded UBUNTU 16 and it works like a charm, my programme on and it works better than windows.
One of my users has suggested Linux mint 32 bit for the ADVENT so will be trying that later. Hopefully all works then I...
I will try LUBUNTU on the Advent.
It is an Advent Milano W7
Intel Atom N270
160GB hard drive
I only need a basic installation as I want to use it to test some programming I am doing. I do like UBUNTU as it the only one that installs and works on my new computer.
I have just got 16.04 working on another laptop and the block 4 error does not appear at all it just boots up and works.
Maybe a hardware problem with the advent?
Just in case not can you tell me which is the best lightweight version of linux?
