How To Install Any Light-Weight Linux OS On Asus T100TAM

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello nice people who probably have a much higher IQ in these things than me (more of a smartphone enthusiast myself),

I have rubbish Windows Hybrid which is more formally known as the Asus T100TAM, I can't seem to get any type of Linux OS on the machine. The closest I have ever gotten was an image of Linux (Can't remember which) that had no network support for WiFi or Ethernet connection via cabled. I am kind of stuck here. Put it back on Windows 10 for the time being but honestly the lag is unbearable. (I did not buy the laptop myself, it was a gift from my father, I would have definitely got a Chromebook for less money.)

Thanks Guys,

Have you tried Lubuntu or Xubuntu? Both are very lightweight distros, good for a low spec laptop like that one (Lubuntu is lighter though). If you have and they didn't work, I can suggest a couple others.
