>I was hoping it would have fixes to Keyboard/Touchpad that would allow them to work without having to install drivers under Windows.

Keyboard should be possible at some point, but not ATM.

>Well, I know it's better. I was just wondering what advantage(s) it would bring to justify me blowing away my dual-booting Windows/Ubuntu install that I have working so well.

Added an advantage to the post above for those who can't or don't want to upgrade the SSD.

Edit: Added another advantage regarding a keyboard bug that seems to finally be solved! \^_^

ATM, there may not be much advantage for you, but you might want to at least start thinking about upgrading since it will get you ready for future TianoCore firmwares that will bring greater improvements and advantages.

If you are leery, you might wait until the Windows Anniversary Update is out in about a month. That will give time for the scripts and such to be updated and perhaps more improvements and advantages to be implemented. It will also be an ideal time to reinstall Windows anyway . . .

There are ways to convert MBR/BIOS installations to UEFI/GPT, but they can be clunky and tricky, especially for Windows. :/

I've found this M.2 SSD to USB 3.0 adapter very helpful for making whole drive backups. This might be helpful for getting data backed up to another computer before reinstallation:

hehe I think 256GB would be too overkill for me, I just want to do some programming and maybe install 1-2 steam games.

THIS should work as well right? MyDigitalSSD is actually more expensive here in Germany.

I just installed Windows, so I dont think i need to port the SSD over, just gotta install all drivers again ! :D

Anyways, thanks so much for your help! It was a pleasure meeting you and to talk to you :)

I would recommend against an SD card since that will be fairly slow. A small USB 3 flash drive would work much better, like this:

I use it and it works great.

Not the OP, but my father just received an Acer Chromebook 14 and we want to know what these options you're talking about are. Would really like windows, but seems like that's not an option, huh. The processor is an "Intel Celeron N3160 Quad-Core Processor 1.6GHz with Intel Burst Technology up to 2.24GHz"

Edit: and link to specific laptop, just in case it's useful

here's what I'd recommend using:

or equivalents from ebay, etc. Then use flashrom from Linux to write a good firmware image back to the board (PM me for download link)

I actually just bought this one:

I used it when I upgraded my C740 from 128GB to 256GB this past weekend.

I just ordered the Acer Chromebook 14 see link for details on processor Acer Chromebook 14" Display, IPS Screen, 4GB Ram, 32GB Flash, ChromeOS, Laptop (Certified Refurbished)

I am willing to donate to help Braswell run Windows. How much do you think he'll need?

Yes I did upgrade to a 128gb SSD (I own a C720P) The installation is fairly simple too. My SSD:

Was looking at this adapter on amazon maybe someone can confirm it would work?

u/OnceInATre0n · 2 pointsr/chrultrabook

Will this fit the Acer CB3-111? It's also 11.6", 30-pin AFAIK.

edit: Comparing pictures in the OP to pictures here, it seems like it would, but I'll look into it more before I go buying anything.

For me, this one in the "used" listing:

Asus X540LA-SI30205P 15.6-Inch Flagship Premium Laptop (Intel Core i3-5020U 2.2GHz Processor, 4GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 10) Silver
