    To install the driver for NVIDIA TU117M [GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile / Max-Q] :smile: 

    In a terminal:

    sudo apt purge '^.*nvidia*'

    sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop

    sudo apt purge "^.*cublas*"

    sudo apt purge "^.*cuda*"

    sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old

    sudo apt autoremove

    sudo reboot now


    While rebooting, press F2 to get into BIOS, go to boot menu, disable Secure Boot, exit and save changes and continue and let then Ubuntu load completely.

    The in a terminal you can:

    sudo ubuntu-drivers devices

    sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

    sudo reboot now


    Now you can use external monitor display or do nvidia-smi

    Hope it helps someone.

    Hold on! It already looks pretty good to go except you must enable F12 boot option in the Main tab. You might also want to shrink the Windows partition ahead of time to make plenty of room or unallocated space for the Linux installation. Press WIN+R, enter 'diskmgmt.msc' to do this safely with Windows disk management app.

    Then insert the Linux installation USB iso. Turn the machine on and immediately start tapping the F12 key to show a menu to allow you to boot from the USB stick. Some distros need to have secure boot disabled in the BIOS. Some distros like Mint often don't. You may have to set and save a BIOS supervisor password, the reenter the BIOS with the password, to disable secure boot in the BOOT tab.

    STOP!!!!

    I can't tell if you've tried to change anything since you posted a lot of Linux commands that should NOT be needed at this point.  Have you changed anything at all since you acquired the machine? For example, you cannot use MBR partitioning or you risk losing everything on the factory boot drive

    You need to disable secure boot and enable the boot menu in order to boot into the Linux installer. Once you have Linux up and running you can select the Linux EFI boot file as trusted, then re-enable secure boot and either leave the boot menu enabled or disable it.

    Too late, I have already installed Ubuntu alongside with Windows. Had to use the previous boot usb with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

    After acquired the machine, I did the following:

    0. BIOS was v 1.06 as-is that came with new laptop.

    1. Update Windows until no more Windows update.

    2. BIOS became 1.08 after Windows update.

    3. Use Windows Disk partition management to allocated around 270 GB of space.

    4. Shutdown and boot into Windows

    5. Shutdown and press F2 to go into BIOS menu.

    - Set Supervisor Password
    - Set Secure Boot = Disabled
    - Set Fast Boot = Disabled
    - Set F12 Boot menu = Enabled.
    - Saved changes and shutdown

    6. Put usb with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and start up computer and press F12

    7. On Grub menu, select Ubuntu on the top selection.

    8. Try Ubuntu --> Test using Ubuntu 20.04 on USB and it works.

    9. Reboot -> Took off usb media -> Boot into windows -> Shutdown

    10. Press F12 on starting up laptop, select Ubuntu on the top selection

    11. Install Ubuntu -> Install alongside with Windows

    12. After Ubuntu successfully loads,

    To upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
    - sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
    sudo do-release-upgrade

    13. To install the driver for NVIDIA TU117M [GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile / Max-Q] 

    In a terminal:

    sudo apt purge '^.*nvidia*'

    sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop

    sudo apt purge "^.*cublas*"

    sudo apt purge "^.*cuda*"

    sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old

    sudo apt autoremove

    sudo reboot now

    While rebooting, press F2 to get into BIOS, go to boot menu, disable Secure Boot, exit and save changes and continue and let then Ubuntu load completely.

    The in a terminal you can:

    sudo ubuntu-drivers devices

    sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

    sudo reboot now


    Now you can use external monitor display or do nvidia-sm

    Using Rufus to write boot usb (1. mbr option and 2. gpt option) does not work, the BIOS was unable to detect the boot usb on F12.

    I had to use a previous written boot usb with Ubuntu 20.04. Cannot remember how was the boot usb written. I believe the boot usb was written by an application on MacOS.

    The partition Ubuntu 22.04 LTS on is GPT.

    After pressing the brightness fn + F9 or fn + F10 in Ubuntu, the brightness was automatically set to lowest. I am unable to increase brightness back

    Do things like fingerprint readers work? I'd expect the network to be fine but the more esoteric devices could be problematic.

    How do I test fingerprint reader works?

    "Once you have Linux up and running you can select the Linux EFI boot file as trusted, then re-enable secure boot and either leave the boot menu enabled or disable it." --> I have not done this yet.

    Nothing. Just use it and experiment with the running Windows and Linux systems as they are. Don't start changing the operating system or BIOS settings unless and until you have a serious issue that prevents booting into or otherwise using either operating system.

    Go to Settings and the click on Users. You should see all the user accounts on your system here. You’ll see several option including Fingerprint Login if the system recognizes your fingerprint reader.
