Due to Ubuntu security setup, LIVA MINI PC won’t boot up without monitor plugged in under Ubuntu OS. So we suggest you to connect the monitor when first booting up, during the system power on, hot plugging of the monitor is acceptable.
For more information to solve the issue, please check on official forum of Ubuntu:
Ubuntu OS is not officially supported by LIVA MINI PC, but the latest Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is able to being installed into LIVA MINI PC. However, due to no official Ubuntu Driver provided by wireless card vendor, it is unable to support WiFi / Bluetooth function.
The audio combo jack supports Line up and Mic in. But due to chipset limitation, microphone is only compatible with iPhone devices.
Windows 8 “Fast Boot” function greatly shortens the time for entering BIOS Menu. Please refer to below link to disable “Fast Boot“.
To solve the problem, please follow below settings.
Device Manager -> Bluetooth Radio -> Power management
-> "Allow the computer to turn off the device to save power" to cancel as below screenshot.
The M.2 slot (NGFF) can only support wireless card. If you need to expand the storage, use a HDD device with USB interface.
There's no need for extra CPUs. LIVA MINI PC adopts Intel® SoC (System-on-a-Chip), which is a system level integration that integrates all components, including CPU, into a single chip, making LIVA MINI PC extremely small and mobile.
