How install a Linux distro onto an Acer Aspire 5 Acer A515-52-776H with a ssd drive ?

curanocurano Member Posts: 4 New User
I just got a new
Acer Aspire 5 A515-52-776H 39,6 cm (15,6 Zoll Full-HD IPS matt) Multimedia Notebook (Intel Core i7-8565U, 8GB RAM, 512GB PCIe SSD, Intel UHD, Win 10)
and would like to install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
The installation procedure doesn't recognize the SSD 512GB Disk at all...
How can I make it available for the installation?
Thanks for advice

  • Unfortunately Ubuntu 18.04 still does not support rst with optane mode! Change the sata mode to ahci! This will break the array!

    Thanks a lot! I didn't check this before.
    Just to say Fedora 29 doesn't recognize them either when SATA is set to RST with Optane...
    Every thing works fine now...
  • Great! Accept my response if I have helped you ;) !

    I was able to do a dual boot of Ubuntu MATE alongside the Windows instal on my acer aspire 1 a114-32-c1ya. It was rather easy. I created a live usb iso of Ubuntu MATE which the Acer recognised right away. Once I was running live in MATE, I did a dual boot instal. During the instal you are asked if you would like to do a full instal  (which wipes Windows) or a dual boot instal. MATE detected the Windows instal and asked if I wanted to instal alongside it. I chose this option and the installer did the rest. I did a Google search for my particular Acer model and installing Ubunbtu and any of it's flavors..I'm pretty sure it's possible.

     Here's a screenshot of Kubuntu 18.1 running on my Acer 1 using the Arc Dark Look and Feel, Arc Dark Transperant Theme, MacOS Sierra Icon set, and the BreezeMite Dark Window Decorations. It's running smoothly! I would do a full Kubuntu instal but I need Windows to run some audio interface apps that are not supported on Linux. Hopefully I'll be able to get another Acer just for Ubuntu.

    Hi egydiocoelho, i would want to know if changing SATA mode is only for the ubuntu installation or it has to remain in that way? Thank you very much. 
    I also would want to know if leaving the SATA mode in AHCI does affect to windows. 

    Thanks and regards.

    In fact, it is possible to enable rst with optane mode in linux. However, the easiest way to solve the problem is to enable ahci mode. Now, if you have windows installed, before changing the sata mode in the bios, it is recommended to enable safe boot in order not to break windows.

    Hi!
    I have A515-52G with latest firmware 1.16 and I dont see anything with Sata or RST. I want to install latest Ubuntu 20.04 and tell me to disable RST before install
  • egydiocoelhoegydiocoelho ACE Posts: 65,110 Trailblazer
    OK! Do it:
    a) first enable safe boot and restart windows:
    janelas 10 Safe Mode - WebSetNet
    b) then, uninstall the intel rapid storage program and the driver for the controlled sata ahci or rst that appears in the device manager:

    c) restart windows and access the bios. Go to the main tab, press ctrl + s and change the sata mode to ahci.

    Note: you must disable fast startup in the power options of windows 10.

    I try install on another Acer Aspire ES1. Ubuntu see an simple SSD 128Gb and installed succesfully but, when restart, start directly W10. No trace of grub or something. On type of installation I chose "Install alogside Widows 10" to manage free space.

    I think usb-stick is ok, becaouse boot and install ok without any errors but, boot directly on Windows 10 and I think this will happend and on Aspire A515-52G.

    EDIT:
    I found solution on ES1. Boot Live from stick and install Boot-Repair, that tell me to configure Uefi Bios to boot from specific file. With that, now works and Ubuntu.
    I will try to make this on A515 ....
