I am quite satisfied with how this laptop works. I am using Linux Mint 16 (based on latest Ubuntu).

I have the same WWAN on my HP pavilion. At the beginning the command provided (modprobe) worked - discovering and connecting with 3g was possible. Did a clone with clonezilla. After some time the command isn't working any more - it discovers the device, gives the range but the connection fails. Even the image cloned with clonezilla isn't connecting any more.
The laptop was originally with windows and 3g was working and works all the time, fresh install and clonezilla recovery gives a working 3g.

Thanks for any advice

hi , did you find a solution ?
i have the same problem with the WWAN

Jacob, 2016/05/31 15:39

I gave up, sorry my friend.

How did people partition to enable dual boot install?
I have 4 primary partitions on my SSD and so I would have to delete an existing one to create an extended partition. Did people just get rid of the HP_RECOVERY or HP_TOOLS partitions?

kie, 2015/06/26 08:15

For reference, to get over the 4 partition limitation, I backed up the HP_TOOLS partition, deleted it, shrank the Windows partition, and created a new extended partition in the free space. Then I ran the Mint Linux 17 installer and told it to install alongside Windows.

I'm not sure how well the hardware works with Mint Linux 17, as there appear to be a few small quirks that I need to explore, but generally it seems ok.

I am running this with a dual boot Win 7 and Ubuntu 14.04. It did not require any special bios tweaks. Forcepad is “ok” - rather sensitive and does not powerdown while typing.

Tartifola, 2014/10/22 09:21

Just finished a quick and dirty install of Linux Mint 17 on a very similar machine and everything seems to work out of the box. I'll be back with further details after a bit of experimenatation.

Sorry, no dual boot in my case so no troubles with UEFI.

chocholo, 2014/05/08 06:15

Nothing more than standard installation required.

Tim, 2014/04/20 22:09

Did you need to install any special drivers for the forcepad to work?

Tim, 2014/04/09 17:05

Are you dual booting? Did you have any trouble with UEFI?

Tim, 2014/04/09 17:02

the device works well, but takes some getting used to.

I had a hard time scrolling for the first few days

How well does the “ForcePad” trackpad work?
