Disregards installation of latest Ubuntu

IT | Dec 31, 2017 |

Disapproving installation of latest Ubuntu you may require changing motherboards.

Canonical has stopped downloads of Ubuntu 17.10 due to an error that creates trouble BIOS on a variety of laptops. Phoronix writes that the problem seems to be most likely to hit Lenovo devices.

Driver Issues
The reason seems to be due to the Intel SPI driver in the Ubuntu 17.10s Linux 4.13 kernel. This damages the BIOS of the motherboards on multiple PCs. Canonical is now working to disable Intel SPI drivers and while working with an update, the group does not recommend downloading 17.10.

People who try to download Ubuntu 17.10 are instead prompted to download 16.04 LTS.

Phoronix writes that you may have to replace your motherboard if your BIOS is damaged unless you have a replaceable flash chip. There have also been reports that a reset of BIOS helps, but the site writes that it's too early to know if it helps all affected.

The problem affects more Lenovo Yoga and IdeaPad machines, but also PCs from Acer, Dell, and Toshiba.

Canonical writes that 17.10 will be available again as soon as the problem is fixed.
