This article covers specific configuration of this laptop.


You have to disable Secure Boot. repeatedly press F10 during boot to bring up the BIOS setup, navigate to the boot section and disable Secure Boot.

To prevent the system from booting in Legacy mode, i also recommend to disable CSM/Legacy mode


Works out of the box. You may have issues after suspend or a quick reboot. To fix this poweroff the laptop and wait 20 seconds until turning on.

Card reader

Detected in kernel versions 5.6 and newer. If mounting the card does not work try booting with the kernel parameter intel_iommu=on and/or with the kernel parameter pci=nommconf.

Function keys

All media keys work. In order to get the mute LED to work you need to load the snd_hda_intel module with the model=alc295-hp-x360 parameter. This can be done by creating the file:

options snd_hda_intel model=alc295-hp-x360

Hybrid Graphics

Works with PRIME GPU Offloading with nouveau, and Reverse PRIME with the proprietary NVIDIA drivers.


Not tested, but hpfall-gitAUR can be used to detect falls and park the hard drive

Secure Boot

Secure Boot, if set properly works with GRUB and shim.

It works, but UEFI is an absolute mess so I would not recommend anyone getting too deep


The system will not allow changing to boot order when there is BIOS administrator password set.
