 +===== Notes =====
 +Weight of the notebook is 2290g(2260g with hdd replacced for ssd).
 +As noted at graphics chip i have some problem:
 +Ubuntu boots with kernel options "​nomodeset,​ noload=ehci-hcd noload=xhci-hcd"​ from stick.
 +Live System boots into text console,​maybe someone can give me a hint how to start x or unity with the live filesystem?
 +ok, solution i found was to start install image (not live)
 +then switch to console 1 (ctrl alt f1)
 +then set display variable and start unity as root:
 +export DISPLAY=:1
 +sudo unity
 +now you have the possibility to start a shell and try some stuff, ​ with secure boot you need ubuntu boot repair [[https://​​community/​LinuxSecureRemix|Ubuntu boot Repair, most modern Version]], ubuntu saucy installs flawless with secure boot but still needs the kernel boot params from above, to run X after install you need to boot into text mode og in and copy /​etc/​X11/​xorg.conf.failsafe to xorg.conf and change config from vesa to fbdev, then reboot into x.
 +For me it worked, i have a secure boot enabled ubuntu and windows 8 side by side now on my notebook.
 +kernel 3.11 and up  needed for wlan, works fine.
 +If you want to extend the memory to 12gb make sure that you follow acer's recommendation and either buy the kingston or the hynix 8gb sodimm 1600mhz memory, ​ i've tried corsair 1333 mhz without success and bought a hynix now which works fine!
 +===== Summary =====
 +Adventure is finished.
 +Please follow steps for [[acer_aspire_v7-482pg-9884]] to get the nvidia optimus working.
 +Signed Versions of the kernel 3.12 can be found at [[http://​​de/​trusty/​linux-signed-image-generic]].
 +Machine itself is very nice and compact. Feel free to send a mail if there are questions.
 +== Additional notes: ==
 +  * to enable the backlight at boot supply kernel parameter "​acpi_backlight=vendor"​ at boot time.
