Just got the VAIO Duo 11, and so far I am impressed. Great device, EXCELLENT touch screen.
I wanted to dual boot Ubuntu (which I’ll be using Unity instead of LXDE) for actually getting stuff done.
1) Boot into Windows 8, and reboot into Recovery Mode. 2) When the Windows 8 bootloader appears, click Troubleshoot, then click Advanced Options. Then click “Reboot into UEFI Firmware”. 3) Insert your Ubuntu 12.10 that is on your USB, then either click the boot from USB option or hit F11 on the keyboard. 4) This will install Ubuntu like normal.
Everything seems to work out of the box with 12.10 - WiFi/Graphics/Touchscreen (only after install, didnt work for me on the “Live CD”.
