Boot Problem with HP Pavilion 11 x360 PC ( n070eg / n071eg )

Hello there,

First of all, Sorry for my terrible english.

I tried to get an Answer on the German Archlinux Forum but unluckily there has nobody an answer for my problem.

So I try to get my Problem solved here smile

Thats Fact:

I buyed, a few Weeks ago, an HP Pavilion "Convertible" PC.
This tiny Laptop is shipped with a Windows 8.1 as the default OS.
But for some Reasons it hasnt the Flavour that i love. It hasnt a Penguin inside ( but an Intel Celeron N2820, Yeah! big_smile )

So what I wanted to do, was to change the OS to my beloved Archlinux.
But i cant get it boot ( from an prepared USB Flash Stick ).

I get an Error like these:

 [ *timestamp* ] can't evaluate : _CRS : 1 

So I googled a while an get som Informations about an "Biosbug" ( it has an UEFI ) that handles very bad with ACPI.
After I read that, I updatet the UEFI Firmware to the newest Version an tried some boot parameters like






But if I boot with acpi=off the keyboard does not work ( for what reason ever.. )

If I try one of the other bootcheats I get the Error above.
At this Point I tried boot with an (L)Ubuntu 14.04 an it work fine out of the box ( without this funny mPCIE Realtek SDCardReader )
Now I thougt by my self: No this cant be truth .. This damn f*ck Ubuntu runs but not my loved Arch, no that isnt funny sad

Has anybody an Idea to get the Installation USB Stick booting ?
Which bootcheats can I try to get this running or has anybody here the same Device and Arch running ?
Is it possible at this time to get Arch on that Device?

Thank you very, for an answer.
I hope you can solve my strength Problem.

Hi rgb-one, Hi Folks,

I thank you a lot for your post smile This could be an solution.

But I got no time to work on this problem last time due the past few days.

So here another try to solve.

Today I downloaded the new Image ( archlinux-2014.08.01.iso ) and yeah, it works!

The only "boot-cheat" is needed is

 acpi_osi="!Windows 2013" 

and the F.12 called Firmware from HP's Supportpage. Then it boots perfectly.

Thanks and Regards Macron
