=== Quick Start Guide ===

* Shrink the Windows partition using Windows Disk Management
* On boot hit Enter, enter BIOS settings to disable SecureBoot
* Boot Windows again, and do BitLocker recovery
* Power off
* Insert Ubuntu Concept X13s USB stick
* Hit Enter, then F12 and select USB stick to boot from
* Complete the side-by-side installation (if you want to keep Windows)

* To recover windows EFI variable & Bitlocker:

boot into windows entry in grub, if bitlocker present it will trigger bitlocker recovery. This also restores Windows EFI boot entry. After this step use Enter then F12 to select OS to boot (windows or ubuntu)

* Install all updates to activate all the latest hardware improvements:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt full-upgrade
$ sudo apt full-upgrade

(Due to preference files shipped, duplicate full-upgrade is required, and a reboot)

=== Known Issues ===

* Currently there is a ~6 minutes boot delay when booting the installer ISO.
  Please be patient and just wait for it to timeout.

* IMPORTANT: If you're doing a release upgrade to Mantic, the Concept PPA is
  disabled after the upgrade and the system is at this point unbootable due to
  missing GPU firmware. Re-enable the PPA
  (/etc/apt/sources.list.d/extra-ppas.sources) followed by:

  $ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

* If you do a Windows update, Windows might/will install 'Windows Boot Manager'
  as the default bootloader again, so no more grub. To fix that, press ENTER at
  the Lenovo boot logo, then press F12 and select 'ubuntu' to boot from. Boot
  Ubuntu and reinstall grub:

  $ sudo grub-install /dev/nvme0n1

* Bluetooth public address is identical for all X13s machines running Ubuntu.
  If you want to change it, you have to modify

* Known to not work at the moment:
  - Camera
  - Virtualization
  - SecureBoot
