Install Ubuntu and make sure the new computers work properly.
The proper name for the new computers (because you can never find that when you need it) is: Lenovo ideapad S530-13IWL.
User guide can be found on: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/s530-13iwl_ug_en_201810.pdf?linkTrack=PSP:ProductInfo:UserGuide.
The four computers that had owners waiting for them have been set up as follows.
- Press the "Novo button" on the right side
- It's a reset type button requiring paper clip or similar
- Boot from Ubuntu boot disk
- Choose test Ubuntu to get access to Gparted
- Resize and move partitions (see "Partitions" below)
- Only make space for Ubuntu partitions now, they are created during installation
- Install Ubuntu (only deviations from default selections noted)
- Select Swedish input
- In "Installation type" select "Something else" because we want partitions
- Add partitions (see "Partitions" below)
Three of the computers had some disk problems that were solved by running chkdsk /f using a Windows boot disk.
I tested the most basic functionality.
Everything in the list worked out of the box.
- Headset through 3.5 mm jack
- Monitor through HDMI
- Fingerprint reader
- Sound through HDMI
- Windows gets to keep 100 GB
- This should be enough if people want to use it
- Root, 50 GB
- Something like 20 GB would probably be enough, but just to avoid it getting filled up with cache/updates/etc.
- Home, ~355 GB
- All that's left
- No swap
- Hibernation is probably not used by most, since it's not enabled by default
