This page covers the current status of hardware support on Arch, pre-installation system configuration tweaks, as well as post-installation recommendations to improve the usability of the system.

The installation process for Arch on the HP Pro x2 612 G2 does not differ from any other PC. For installation help please see the Installation guide and UEFI. To set up a dual boot configuration with Windows, refer to Dual boot with Windows.

As of kernel 4.3, the Intel Skylake architecture is supported.

Pre-Installation System Settings

Prior to installation, access the system UEFI firmware by pressing F2 during boot.

  • Secure Boot: disable

Installation of Arch can proceed normally. Refer to the Installation guide for more info.

Graphics Configuration

The HP Pro x2 612 G2 has Intel HD Graphics 615 integrated graphics, see Intel graphics for details.

Power Management

Suspend

Suspend works without issues.

Battery

Battery life can be improved by installing powertop and calibrating it. See Powertop for more info.

It's also possible to deactivate some devices and ports over the BIOS.

  • BIOS -> Advanced -> Build-In Device options (Example: WWAN)
