Hi all, I got the same damage to my LENOVO Y50 70 from Knoppix last Edition ~8.1. I tried the above resoulution from Knoppix USB Live but i were not able to install that kerenal in Live edition because of some Grub related issue.I erased same drive and put Latest Ubuntu in it and were able to boot in legecy mode pressing F12.(Not able to boot UEFI Mode).Then i installed it to my HDD.as i connected to internet 4.13 kernal update came,i applied it but still not fixed,so i installed second kernal in the above solution and within a couple of reboots i got back my BIOS settings back.
My question is if Linux kernal which goes to all ditribution itself is like this how can i trust Linux ,it spoiles my expensive hardware.I am losing all my learning interest and trust in linux i am thinking how can i use a linux distro one more time? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1734147 Title: corrupted BIOS due to Intel SPI bug in kernel To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linux/+bug/1734147/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
