Notes

You can run Ubuntu on this notebook, but you must disable the ACPI, seems like only Debian and OpenSuse(haven;t tried Fedora) have the driver for the ACPI, Ubuntu drop the support for the ACPI starting from 10.04

Summary

Debian lovers? you are in luck
Ubuntu lovers? just forget it… it is pain in the ass to disable the ACPI everytime you reboot
except if you modified the grub configuration, but the side effect is your notebook will drain battery faster

If you have a F81S Laptop (like I do)

Do this:

Go to bios >
Security> I / O interface Security> “New interface card” or so. Set it to locked
