    Step-by-step instructions: Ubuntu installation for your Intel QC71 gaming laptop


    Here you can learn step-by-step how to install Ubuntu 20.04 on your Intel QC71 notebook. These instructions are also valid for other Linux distributions based on Ubuntu, like Kubuntu, Xubuntu or Linux Mint.

    1. If you haven't done already, download your desired installation file (.iso) from the official Ubuntu website and create a bootable medium (e.g. USB stick). You can find instructions here.


    2. Connect your Ubuntu boot stick to your Intel QC71 notebook, turn it on and immediately press the F10 key repeatedly until a small blue window for selecting the boot medium appears. Select your Ubuntu stick with your arrow keys and confirm the selection with the Enter key. Now your notebook will not be booted as usual from your built-in SSD, but from your Ubuntu boot stick.


    3. A black screen will then appear with several selection options. Use your arrow keys to select "Install Ubuntu (safe graphics)" and press Enter again.


    4. Follow the Ubuntu installation instructions and install the operating system on your notebook. Please make sure to activate both options "Download updates while installing Ubuntu" and "Install third-party software for graphics and Wi-Fi hardware and additional media formats" !


    5. After completing the installation, please download the following TUXEDO driver packages, which will be installed quickly and automatically by double-clicking. Please install according to the following order!

    5.1 tuxedo-keyboard
