Ubuntu on the Razer Blade Stealth (late 2016)

I received my Razer Blade Stealth (late 2016) last week. I needed to install Ubuntu to work on some of my projects and to use as my “private stuff” OS (as-opposed to my “company stuff OS”, which is Windows). So I installed Ubuntu as a dual boot alongside Windows 10. Here is how I did it.

  1. Shrink the Windows partition.
  2. Download the Ubuntu 16.10 iso file.
  3. Create a bootable Ubuntu USB drive using UNetbootin.
  4. Install Ubuntu.

Then, you’ll probably noticeĀ Ubuntu gets stuck in a suspend/resume loop when you close and reopen the lid. To fix this, add “button.lid_init_state=open” to the grub boot parameters and update grub.
