The new Lenovo convertible laptop, Lenovo Yoga 900 and 900s, would reject and decline any attempt to install Linux operating system, making users turn their heads to Microsoft as the suspect for this issue.
This matter follows the popular boiling discussion on Reddit's Linux subreddit page following and tackling the same issue. After accepting and managing the complaints on this matter, Lenovo announced their official statement and stand against this matter on Lenovo's discussion board and right after, confirmed that Microsoft had nothing to do with this issue. Moreover, there are notions that Apple's MacBook Air is way more better than the Lenovo, reports GamenGuide.
This issue about the OS started when an identity of BaronHK posted on Reddit about installing Linux on the latest Lenovo Yoga book in which BaronHK encountered being blocked by a locked solid state drive (SSD) which Linux cannot define itself, and come up to link the issue to Microsoft.
