Question

Hey all. First post, but I'm a long time Funtoo supporter. I plan on getting an x86 (Intel Atom-based) tablet soon for Funtoo and I had a few questions:

 

? Since it's an Intel platform (it ships with Windows 8.1 32bit installed) will Grub install as if it were on a regular PC?

 

? Would I be able to install to an SD Card thus leaving the onboard eMMC intact with Windows in case I need it?

 

? What has the best chance of working with the current kernel iterations?

 

That's all I can think of at the moment, but if I can think of something else to ask I'll edit this post/respond to anyone that's responded etc.

 

Thanks,

Shiggitay

 

P.S. I'm also in the iRC channel under this same nick if you'd like to PM me.

 

EDIT: BTW, here are the two tablets I have in mind for this project: 

 

an 8 inch form factor: http://www.microcenter.com/product/429776/VivoTab_Note_8_Tablet_-_Black

 

and a 10.1" form factor: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?sku=410605

 

EDIT 2: I think I might have a winner: http://www.quantumsuppliers.com/shop/bts-products/quantum-view-10-1-windows-tablet/

Hey all. I finally got my Intel BayTrail tablet, I'm trying to boot Sysrescue onto it. I'm running into UEFI issues. I cannot get it to boot off of the live USB I made no matter what I do. Can anyone offer any pointers? I got the Quantum Suppliers? ?QuantumView? and it'll only boot into the eMMC-preinstalled Windows 8, of which I'd like to give a shot, since it's made for touch screens (I have a have keyboard dock as well, as it comes with one) but ultimately I'd like to install and run Funtoo Linux. Thanks in advance.
