I looked but didn’t see this observation. I wanted to set up a Windows partition for some SDR applications and a few specific games. First time installing went well, but then I had a burp during the Linux install and decided to wipe clean and do over. Uh, in the meantime, I started populating the expansion slots. Windows installation kept crashing, and I was thinking of punting. I’m not a Windows fan, and I’ve done okay for 17 years without it. However, even though I really like this snappy laptop on Linux, the challenge of the Windows install was a puzzle to solve. After several more tries, I removed the storage expansion module. It was all I could think of, and the module was not present when I had a successful install before. Windows installed and runs. For me, Kubuntu did not give an “install beside Windows option” (after resizing the Windows partition. I had to manually format the free space as ext4 and target that partition for the install.
Not a problem, I just thought I would document in case anyone else bumped into issues. The laptop is running great with the storage expansion; Windows just didn’t like the drive present during an install.
