The MINIX Neo Z64A (Android) comes with 64-bit UEFI firmware which makes it easier to try things although success will still vary.

Here are some POC (proof of concept) videos of booting from USB showing:

Ubuntu Utopic - http://youtu.be/kHpHoaYUyf0
OpenELEC - http://youtu.be/XuEmwb0jci8
Android on Intel - http://youtu.be/xqYAQZqvYs0
Windows 10 - http://youtu.be/dueAgNEZ0Q0
SteamOS - http://youtu.be/p_1iJGGGezs

Each have their own own set of issues ranging from minor to fundamental.

+dhead666 It's a good question, but I suspect it's down to patents and licencing.  Due to the overly-broad US patent system, it may be impossible to integrate any sort of audio processing without having to pay half a dozen different patent holders. Annoying as it is for us, realtek may be intel's cheapest and easiest option.

+Alberto Cerero +Jacky Man Given the new SOC I think they missed an opportunity by not releasing an Ubuntu flavoured desktop OS release ... I bet there are a lot of people right now puzzling over Snappy :)

Want to try out Ubuntu on your Meegopad T01 or MINIX Neo Z64* but don't want the hassle of UEFI issues?  

I've created an Ubuntu 14.10 USB image that will work with both 32-bit and 64-bit boot loaders. Just download the image from https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B99O3A0dDe67aFliZTEtTzlrUEk/ and uncompress it, then write it to a USB (8GB minimum) using either "Rufus" (in Windows) or "dd" (in Linux). Next plug the USB into your Intel Mini PC and after booting into BIOS go to menu “Save & Exit” and select “UEFI: USB device” for “Boot Override".

The first boot will resize the file system on the USB and then reboot - so make sure this is the only USB storage device connected during the initial boot. As a result the first boot is rather slow so be patient and let it complete.  When the device reboots it will boot to the default you have currently set. To boot into Ubuntu on the USB you will have to select "UEFI: USB device" boot override from the BIOS each time unless you change your boot order defaults. As usual the username is “linuxium” and the password is “p”.

I've written some instructions on dual booting Android and Ubuntu-from-USB on the MINIX Neo Z64A ... see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FVZ6GYe1auLUdp14zWM8BSasCPm49J2kXWQ1noq_agQ/ ... I've also created a USB image for Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) that was prepared by running the installation steps and it can be downloaded from https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B99O3A0dDe67M0J5WXJjVjJlVzg/ and once uncompressed, written to a USB using either “Rufus” (in Windows) or “dd” (in Linux) and booted directly from the BIOS ... see the instructions for further details.

Felt like letting off a bit of steam ... installed to and booted from a 64GB USB drive ... unfortunately Steam starts to a blank screen ... so things to be fixed include Xorg, grub and probably the usual issues such as sound, wifi/bt etc.

I've updated my tri-booting Windows, Linux and Android on the Meegopad T01 to include my 'grub' wrapper workaround to allow easier option selection ... see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Cp8PHEmNrlDufVoDpeEqNEdGWJi_cZ_Mo6VC7QDeN8s

+Ian MORRISON Thanks. Looks like audio is not working either. It's trying to load a different firmware compared to mine though intel/fw_sst_0f28.bin-i2s_master instead of intel/fw_sst_0f28.bin-48kHz_i2s_master.

I've asked about MeegoPad T01, because I saw an audio device in lspci output, and someone claimed HDMI audio is working. (in freaktab). So I'll just wait for his answer.

Just to show the difference in browsers, I got almost exactly the same Octane score with Chrome (5296), but only 3164 using I.E.
