It actually comes with W10 installed, but unlikely to be a legal paid-for copy. There's no visible POST information on the screen while it boots (it simply boots into the Windows initialisation program), but if you want to install some other OS you'll need to press F9 during boot to get the option to boot from a USB stick or a plugged-in CD drive. I installed Linux Mint. First time it installed OK but then booted up on Windows installation (without giving me a choice) since I'd decided to dual-boot - seems the BIOS doesn't allow dual booting when W10 is there, so next time I deleted the W10 entirely and now it boots up Linux with no problems but without showing the grub screen that would allow multiple booting options. EUFI is strong in this one.... The box seems to be faster than my old triple-core 2.1GHz AMD64, and there are no proprietary drivers needed since the Intel video driver is in the standard system. Wifi works without problems, and the self-tests show that the specifications given (4MB RAM, 128GB chip disk) are as stated. As such, it's a perfectly good replacement for a desktop box but instead of needing around 200W it only needs around 20W and there's no fan noise. The case doesn't get noticeably warm, either, but then I haven't yet run it hard. Great value if you want to replace an old desktop machine and get a nice speed upgrade as well. Since it's x86 64-bit, things should just run on it rather than being new code that's a bit flaky.

  • simonderricutt Updateon this: To enter the BIOS, hold down the DEL key during start-up. This then allows you to move to the disk boot order and to change the priority of boot devices. Also ensure that secure boot is disabled, but there's no need to change from UEFI boot to legacy unless you're installing a home-brew OS and haven't built it with UEFI. Now there is a choice of OS installed, the grub boot menu appears, though it should really have appeared before to give the options of memcheck and recovery. There's a slight downside with the TF card slot, it that in order to get it to latch it needs to be pushed below the surface and to do that you need something narrow to push it with (another TF card initially works). I expect I'll carve some of the case away so that I can do this using fingers instead - needs around 1mm of plastic removed.
    The information as to how to get into the BIOS setup should really have been supplied in the box, since it's not standard across manufacturers and the BIOS does not display it on the screen during boot.
