You know, I was gonna tell you, "good luck with that Bay Trail machine! They don't like Linux!"

But before I opened my mouth, I decided to try again on mine, what the heck.
And it WORKED!
Dang, got Quirky April64 7.0.3 running on this ASUS T100 2-in-1 Windows 8.1 tablet: (similar architecture to yours)

Had it for over a year, but it was so hard to run any kind of Linux on it, I just gave up and didn't bother anymore.
Networking and touchscreen not working, but those were always the sticky issues.
But I can poke around and work on that now that I have a basic working system at full res with keyboard and touchpad at least. Cool.

To Barry K,

in Utility/pRun application launcher, if speaker test is selected
and the noise runs, the noise doesn't stop when pRun
is closed down.

The only way to stop the noise is to re-boot Q7.0.3
Regards, RB

P.S. How are you supposed to post images the way I see you guys do it in the box? Can't figure it out. Must be dumb/blind.
Attachment doesn't seem to work the same way. Am I missing something?



EDIT: <deleted previous double post>


Good to know it works...
I must have done something wrong while creating the usb drive.

I just got wifi networking up! Typing this now from the ASUS T100.
I used a cheap mini wifi USB adapter I had lying around, an rtl8192cu module that Puppy sees just fine.

Just so you don't chase your tail, I didn't really do a standard install. I just tried something that happened to work.
Later on I can look at doing it properly, but I'm just fine with this bit of progress right now.
All the tablet's features are not fully functional, but works fine as a basic laptop.

This isn't the normal USB approach. I'm running off a live ISO written to USB drive, and then with the special 32-bit UEFI bootloader mod added.
I didn't expect it to work, but I turned around and saw it coming up.

Linux and Quirky has come a long way in a year since I last tried Linux on this thing.

Thanks Barry!

I must have missed something in my excitement, can someone point me at the appropriate puppy-page please. I will need this I think, at least the 64 bit one.

Is anyone working on a total boot replacement for UEFI bios systems (?grub3? or similar), so we don't have to leave w$8.x taking waste space on our hard drives. I don't mind the shortened bios, but I hate having something wasting hard drive space!

The Toshi' I got last week died (totally between hard boots overnight), so I took it back, they couldn't get it working either (not just the power supply) and they couldn't replace it as they had no matching stock onsite or warehouse. Agreement made when i brought it was replace-on-the-spot' as I have to travel nearly 200km each way for this type of gear. After a short 'discussion' it was replaced with a 'specification equivalent' notebook, so I ended up with a Acer Aspire E15, about another $100 in value before we consider the $50.00 discount I had already had negotiated. This one fires up and seems to be ok from it's cd drive, I haven't run it from the hard drive yet, but it likes all my puppys i've tried via iso cd's to date. I'm still working out what I will set it up as as I have two systems that are starting to die, a souped-up PII (old test box, ?but do we need to test against a PII nowadays) and one of my build boxes (overheating chipset, needs a cooling burst of gas ocasionally) which was to be it's purpose.

And the excitement was the email notice that my Acer Aspire V5 Touchscreen is at their australian warehouse being checked out and would be delivered this coming week. Now all it has to do so is actually arrive and 7.0.3 work correctly!

Oh, yes, I noticed that acer has bios downgrades for some of the models, apparently to allow downgrades to windows 7 from 8.x, ?anyone know if this is a install of a real bios, the site doesn't say.

Please do not link to images that are wider than 800-900 pixels.
Messes up the pages and make them hard ro read since you must scroll left-right all the time.
Use mtpaint or other graphics programs to scale down your image.
Thanks

Thanks.
Someone finally PM'd me on image posting method: < 800 pix wide, < 256kb.
All previous posts fixed.

This is really a specific thing for Intel Bay Trail machines with ATOM Z37xx SoC. More specifically in this case ASUS T100 and Acer Switch 10. It's not standard. The workaround involves some special binaries.
If this applies to you and you want more info, you can check out first:
https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=intel+bay+trail+linux+32+bit+uefi

Or if you can't find it, let me know.

Subject description: installer fails on Fatdog64-700
 

Running the installer script on Fatdog64-700 fails with error dialog "Checksum failed" (or similar message) after download. In truth its the downloading that doesn't even start, because Fatdog64 has no download_file. See log below.

Suggestion: in the "Quirky Installer: frugal" dialog change the pull-down default to "Download" instead of "CD/DVD", so that the explanatory text makes immediate sense - I kept staring and looking for a Download button or some explicit Download widget until I ventured into the pull-down (maybe it's just me).

Subject description: installer script fails mkdir: can't create directory '/mnt/sda1/april64-7.0.3'
 

Continuing on to test the installer script on Fatdog64, I downloaded the ISO separately, and told the installer to use the downloaded ISO. This time the installer failed with a generic error dialog. The root cause is failure creating a folder in /mnt/sda1. In my PC /dev/sda1 is an unmounted 350 MB reserved Win 8 system partition, nothing fancy, just the default partition scheme I got from the store, sda1 = win8 reserved, sda2 = win8 OS.
