Hallo zusammen, 
passend zu HP-Debatte nun ach die Win-Only-PCs (wurde gerade auch von Hanno auf 
Reddit beobachtet):

Weiß jemand wie weit das geht? Kann man den Raid-Mode auch umgehen und auf 
klassisches AHCI umstellen?

Viele Grüße
Till

Microsoft Reportedly Requires "Signature PCs" To Be Locked To Only Running 
Windows


Lately I've heard a few reports of some newer PCs being less than friendly with 
Linux, namely a number of Lenovo devices who have issues with installing Linux. 
Based upon new information that's come to light from a Phoronix reader, it 
appears that PCs receiving Microsoft's "Signature Edition" tag are being 
locked-out from running non-Windows platforms. 
Ryan Farmer wrote in explaining that his Yoga 900 ISK2 UltraBook hasn't been 
able to see Linux installed over a proprietary RAID mode that's locked by the 
UEFI/BIOS of this ultrabook: Linux can't see the SSD. When contacting Lenovo, 
he was told by a Lenovo representative, "This system has a Signature Edition of 
Windows 10 Home installed. It is locked per our agreement with Microsoft." 
Microsoft Signature Edition PCs are those that come without any pre-installed 
bloatware (per Microsoft's own description), comes protected with Windows 
Defender by default, ensures solid keyboard quality, meets Microsoft touchpad 
sensitivity standards, and meets other Windows hardware certification 
requirements. And according to this Lenovo representative, an unadvertised 
requirement is that it be locked to running Windows 10. 
There is a wide assortment of Microsoft Signature Edition PCs from different 
vendors, including laptops, tablets, and desktops. Those interested in seeing 
the Signature Edition hardware can do so via the MicrosoftStore.com. 
Some more bits of information can be found via this Ubuntu Forums thread. 
There's also been much discussion on the Lenovo Forums about other customers 
running into problems of being unable to install Ubuntu and other operating 
systems.
