You can enter any specific notes with running Linux on the Acer Iconia W3-810 here.
Managed to boot with x86 (32bit) rEFInd 0.7.4.1. Possible to start efi loader for 32bit grub2 (grubia32.efi).
Grub seems to work fine. Both grub and rEFInd are working just fine in native resolution. USB keyboard is working.
Unfortunately tablet hangs with black screen just after loading linux kernel.
I've tried booting with Ubuntu's 3.8.0-34-generic kernel with and without nomodeset option.
There seems to be no further disk activity after the screen turns black.
If anyone would be interested, I'd be happy to share boot partition. Please send me email: ztokarczyk at gmail.
