I've got my new Travelmate yesterday, an X349-m-597M version, and i tried to install many distributions of linux (manjaro, ubuntu, kde neon, mint) from usb bootable stick (used tools: rufus, ImageWrite, unebootin, dd). After i step into the bootloader and pick an installation option, i got a black screen. No prompt, no response for any key and if i remove the usb stick, nothing happens.
After few hours of pointless attempts, i decided to try windows. Created a stick with rufus, and worked immediately.
My questions are: is there any hardware limitation for linux in this series? If no, what is the method to get any linux distro on this laptop. If there is a method for installation, but not working on my laptop, is the warranty valid?
