Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I just added the board and I worked out of the box. Suddenly my bios and Grub does not show up anymore. But it boots in linux normally.

How can I fix it.

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Thanks for the updates on Arch with i3wm hints.

Could someone provide the instructions for patching the kernel 4.15.x in Arch ? I could not find the instructions on this.
