Before installing it is necessary to modify some UEFI Settings. They can be accessed with F2 when booting.

Dual boot

Please note that changing from "RAID" to "AHCI" can break the default Windows installation and require a complete reinstall. Usually running windows own startup repair utility however fixes this issue in most cases. Another alternative is to follow this guide.

The reinstall can be done through the Dell recovery in the UEFI if needed.

Once you used the startup repair utility or have reinstalled, Windows should boot normally in AHCI mode and without error. Then one can proceed with typical dual boot setup.

Power Management

See Hibernation for kernel parameters & initramfs configuration.

S3 Sleep is not supported. S0ix however works reasonably, losing roughly 0.5% battery per hour. Sata mode "RAID" needs to be changed to "AHCI" for S0ix to work. Without S0ix activated the laptop looses around 2% battery per hour.

Both NVIDIA's proprietary driver and nouveau reliably disable the NVIDIA card.

Fingerprint reader

Works well after enrollment with fprint.
