This page is basing on the L5H60EA#ABD version of HP Pro x2 612 G2, it should also work with the other versions. Current bios version is 1.0.5.

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.

Installation

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

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