Fedora Linux and Lenovo ideapad 110

Q: Fedora Linux and Lenovo ideapad 110

I have a Lenovo ideapad 110 and I replaced Windows with Fedora Linux. I have overwritten the recovery partition, is my warranty now void? Or is there some kind of hidden partition to recover Windows 10 Home. (I don't need it, I just want to know about the warranty).

Preferred Solution: Fedora Linux and Lenovo ideapad 110

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hello everyone, I purchased a new Lenovo Ideapad 320 on March 27th, 2018. I have the following configuration on my Lenovo Ideapad 320:-Processor: Core i5 7th GenerationRAM: 4 GBHDD: 2 TBOS: Windows 10 Home Edition I installed VmWare Workstation as I intended to use Fedora 26 virtual machine on it. However, the entire system hangs when I do that.  Any suggestions as to what is lacking/ required on the system to use Fedora 26 in the VmWare without hanging. I don't have any problems when I run Fedora 26 in VmWare on a Dell laptop of my friend. I would really appreciate it if some one could reply ASAP; as I am a freelancer (I have to meet some committed deadlines). Thanks & Regards.

My girlfriend's lenovo ideapad Z710 won't boot up past the Lenovo splash screen. She turned it on this evening and it just keeps refreshing to the Lenovo splash screen. She can't access the bios as far as I know, and she tried the CMOS battery thing as far as I'm aware and that didn't work. It won't boot into the OS and just keeps refreshing to the Lenovo splash screen. Any help would be appreciated. it's a fairly old laptop but it's needed and we can't seem to get it to boot up again.

Hi,I would like to install the BIOS update for my Lenovo G50-45 but I am on Linux Mint 19.1. How can I do that? I already tried it with a bootable USB with FreeDOS but it tells me that it is not possible because the EXE file of the BIOS is a Win32 program.

Ok, so I have a Toshiba P205 and I bought windows 7 32-Bit. At the time I really didn't understand the difference between 32 and 64 bit. When I found out that it was just on how the processors were managed and if your computer could run 64-Bit it's probably better to run it, especially if you have 4 GB of ram.

Well, when I downloaded and installed Fedora 64 Bit, I get the message

BOOTMGR could not be found. Press CTRL ALT DELETE to reboot. Well I did that.

I tried using Windows 7 start up disk to see if I could repair the problem but it says that Windows 7 could not be found, well I reformatted my computer and deleted my entire hard drive to start fresh. I did that installed windows 7 again and also Fedora. I really want to keep both, is there a way to have both of these programs running in harmony or am I out of luck?

A:Windows 7 32-Bit and Linux Fedora 64-Bit

Try using two partitions, one for Win 7 & one for Fedora.

Why are all linux browsers so frigging slow, compared to windows, for example IE or Mozilla loads an average page in about 5 seconds max with highspeed internet (3 mb) but when using linux it takes about 30 if not more with same connection, does anybody know how to fix this or if there are any other browsers for fedora 4

A:Linux Browsers (Fedora Core 4 and others)

Try Opera - the fast browser

In Linux you can use Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, Konqueror, IE

If it is still slow with Opera, then you should look over the Linux network connection setup - you may have done something wrong.

If it's only slow with Mozilla/Firefox, then you should look into updating your graphics drivers - it is usually GTK2 rendering that makes these browsers slow on Linux.

In my university, each student has to identify himself before using the internet by login into university domain. In WinXP, there is no problem with joining domain. But in FedoraCore2, I don't know how to join domain or find any place that I can input my username and password to join.

Up to now, I can not use internet with FC2. Can anyone help me to solve this problem?
Thank you.

A:Linux Fedora Core2 : how to connect to internet

You can set up Samba to act as a domain member computer and if you add Winbind then you can "log into" the domain. Whether it actually would let you use the internet depends on how exactly the authentication is set up in your university.

You are better off talking to the IT people on site - they know how the system works and will be able to help you more.

Hi, I've just installed Linux Fedora 19 within my Win7. I was expecting that I'm going to use some 3rd party software to create Dual-Boot, but Linux did it all by itself. So I guess the using of software like Grub is not needed, or?

Fedora installed Grub for you. I have several linux distros on my vista lap top and grub handles them all.

Hello friends, I have owned several HP computers and printers - have had only good experiences. However, I don't like Windows op systems. Back in the day I installed various version of Linux directly on to computers with Windows already installed. I never experienced a problem before this. I simply popped in the bootable Linux install disk and all went well. The Linux simply over wrote/destroyed the Windows OSWith this very beautiful and wonderful "Silver Fusion" with Intel Core i3-6100U Processor and Intel HD Graphics 520, I have had no success installing the linux op sys. I have a brand new "out of the box" (purchsed some years ago), 64 bit Fedora 14.When I insert the DVD it spins a bit and then all is quiet. On one attempt I was presented, for about 15 seconds with a Linux file folder with folders inside that may have held the entire Linux op sys. I have not been able to find this file/folder anywhere on the win 10 system. It has been about ten years since I messed around with this stuff so I am not sure what I would do with the file if I did find it.     I really like this new HP cpmputer and I would seriously like to find a way to install a version of Fedora Linux.Perhaps I need to purchase a more recent version of Fedora???  Perhaps in my golden years I have missed something really simple???Any ideas?       Thank you, jatwater

Hey guys;

I have installed Windows XP and Fedora Core 5 linux as dual boot. I use both of them and they both work fine. However, I have given Linux too much disk space, like 15GB, which I believe is way too much, besides I need some extra space for my windows xp. I have tried Partition magic but it can't work with "ext3" partitions. I tried to uninstall Fodora, but when I did, windows xp won't load because it was using the BootLoader by Fedora (which was removed). So I had to install fedora again on 15GB partition. I want to keep Fedora but with less disk space (or partition). How to deal with this problem?

Is there a way to resize "ext3" partition? or Is there a way to uninstall fedora and make my windows XP load up? How to deal with it?

thank you.

A:Fedora Core 5 linux & windows XP dual boot

You probably have an ancient version of Partition Magic. Try something newer.

Hi there:

I have followed the instructions of installing mysql in tar.gz form

I am at the part of running it with

Starting the MySQL Database
# su -
# cd /usr/local/mysql

I then go to check the contents of this mysql.pid and it does not exist when I cat. Actually the folder /var/run/mysqld/ does not even exist in /var/run/ .

Can you guys lend me some insight as to what went run in my install of mysql, in terms of newbie language for linux.

I have a new Z Book G3 that came with Windows 10 pre-installed. It has two disks. The firstis a 1 TB spinning disk and the other is a 256 GB SSD. Nothing is on the SSD. I'm attempting to create a dual-boot machine with Fedora Core 24 as the other OS. I've resized the Windows partition using Disk Management, and that seems to have been successful because I can still boot into Windows 10. I've tried to install FC 22 and various versions of FC 24, as well as Ubuntu 16.04 with no success. I'm using FC iso DVDs in a USB DVD drive as the install media. The installation from the live meda FC disk goes well until a certain point. The last line printed to the screen by the installer is always: [ OK ] Started User Manager for UID 1000 Then it hangs forever. There are hundreds of lines before that line, but I can't figure out how to capture them. The lines just above the failure are: [ OK ] Created slice User Slice of liveuserStarting User Manager for UID 1000[ OK ] Started Session 1 of user liveuser I've got Secure Boot disabled and Legacy Boot enabled in the BIOS. I've also tried the "Troubleshooting" low-res graphics installation option of the FC iso DVDs. Same result. I've checked the integrity of the installation iso's using SHA256SUM. I've had similar (not identical) problems with Ubuntu. Anyone have any suggestions for how I can install linux on this Z Book? Chad

A:trouble installing fedora 14 and ubuntu after deleting linux partition

Be careful with Fedora 14. You have separate partitions and one thing Fedora does is merge all partitions into one logical volume group. You have a backup
partition which contains drivers for your computer/laptop, ideally I would make a copy of this data before you install.

Is there some reason you prefer Fedora over Ubuntu? Both use Gnome 2.32 as the desktop, with the addition that Ubuntu 11.04 will install Unity desktop as well.

Unfortunately you cant tell much from the windows partition manager as drives are just assigned a letter, and you can only have 4 primary partitions.
Post on the linux forum if youre happy with your windows setup, Wmorri is Fedora Ambassador, but when you do please provide the following information.
Boot with the Ubuntu CD in Live mode (or try before installing). It will pick up your network, open a terminal and post output of:

I did a fresh install of Linux Fedora 12 and discovered that this new version of Fedora doesn't like my Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX graphics card. I tried numerous installation techniques but they failed every time. I scoured the forums for answers but no single answer would work. Finally, I rearranged the steps from a couple of different forums and it worked. If you're having trouble getting your Nvidia card installed in Fedora 12, then give this a try. Let me know if it works.
Nvidia Driver Install for Fedora 12[
Edit the /boot/grub/grub.conf file using Gedit
Open a Terminal Window
Login as superuser (enter "su" at the command prompt, and press Enter.)
You'll be prompted for your password. Type it in and press Enter.
Paste ?gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf? into command prompt, and then press Enter.
Find the kernel line in the grub.conf file. It will say something like ? kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=XXX rhgb quiet?
After the word ?quiet?, paste ?nouveau.modeset=0?
Save and close the grub.conf file.
At the Terminal prompt, paste ?setsebool -P allow_execstack on? and press enter.
At the Terminal prompt, paste ?yum --enablerepo=rp*g install kmod-nvidia.$(uname -m) xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64?

Yahoo website stopped opening in my Linux Fedora 14 Laptop about ten days back

Used nmap like this about one day before that:

nmap -A -T4 in.yahoo.com

How to find out if Yahoo has blocked my machine as an attacker ?
Browser (SeaMonkey) says "Connected to in.yahoo.com" and then quickly goes to "Waiting for in.yahoo.com...".
After a few seconds even that message goes away from the browser status bar and the window remains blank.

It is a difficult situation as I depend a lot on yahoo email. Have used yahoo as my main email for over 15 years and never had such problems.

What is blocking the page from loading ?
Entered the address which quickly brings up the yahoo main page at http://failsafe.fp.yahoo.com/
However this page does not go to the mail page even after clicking the mail links.

Good day, This post is to comment about my experience of installing Fedora 28 in my MiiX 310. I will be brief, I just installed yesterday and I am checking multiple things recently. First, you don't need to put "nomodeset" "i915.modeset=1" on grub in Fedora 28, it runs without that. It will take a little time and the screen will look weird for some minutes but bear with it and you will get into desktop without problems. Installation runs great without problems (I didn't activate the wifi card). The only thing you have to do manually is rotating the screen, you can do it in grub or using "xrandr --output DSI-1 --rotate right" without "sudo". You have to calibrate the touchscreen when you put it into panoramic view, check this guide how to do it: https://esc.sh/blog/linux-on-lenovo-miix-320/ So far, the external SD is recognized and works ok. I am having problems with the sound but I will try blacklisting a module some people mentioned  before. Camera is not working and there is no work around (yet). I will try the "disablewhiletyping" option with libinput for the touchpad. I am using Fedora 28 Xfce spin. I have it updated with only the official opensource repos.   If any of you had luck activating the camera, let me know please. I hope this brief and humble post is helpful to anyone.

i have some questions regarding dual booting windows 7 home premium x64 with linux fedora 14 on dual independantly dedicated drives. i am a college student with moderate computer (windows) knowledge but am doing software development and would like to play around with some linux for a class. i have no prior experience with linux and have minimal knowledge of operation. i am currently running windows 7 and would like to keep it as my primary os. i do not wish to share media files across drives or os's, windows does that just fine as is and i dont want to get into a third drive. my current drive is a 1tb wd black caviar hdd. it is also currently 2/3rds full and the desktop is about 6 months old so i would rather not partition the drive for a dual boot. i would think that there are some other advantages for the os's operating independantly off their own drives other than if one hdd dies i should still have the other with its os still ok. i have read some topics about RAID configs with dual boot setups with dual drives like this but am not very familiar with RAID. is there a RAID config that would be beneficial in this situation? i currently do not have a RAID card. my tower internals are not very accessible and i dont like the idea of disconnecting drives depending on which os i want to operate. so what would be the best way of going about this? this is a near future project so i am looking for someone with some experience in this area hopefully.

Hi - the current version of the ideapad 710s BIOS does not allow changing of the SATA/drive mode from RAID to AHCI. As a result, it is pretty much impossible to install Linux onto these systems. I've tried multiple combinations of things - completely wiped the drive, disabled UEFI, Secure Boot and enabled Legacy mode, etc - and nothing works.  The currently locked SATA mode basically prevents Linux from even seeing the SSD.  I've tried the latest versions of Ubuntu and Gentoo - both with the same result. Is there any reason why this setting is not exposed?  Are there any plans to expose it?
