Try mint on a tablet

Post by stargazerpjs » Mon Feb 29, 2016 12:23 am

Thinking of picking up a second had Microsoft Surface Pro 1 or 2 and installing mint on it, I have considered some other x86 CPU tablets, but unsure weather the BIOS would be a problem, Has anyone attempted this or have thoughts how I should approach this ? Or even other brands of tablets ??

you would have to access the UEFI with:
https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-au ... windows-10
and see if there was an option to boot a usb device ..
