I have this laptop and have tried to install arch, Fedora and ubuntu on it. Spent like 40h learning how to install arch and i actually succeded and learned a lot. There are 2major problems with NH751. First problem is the UEFI “BIOS”. Installing Fedora or Ubuntu wont just work with this UEFI without some modifications. After some hacking i got it to boot with arch. For some reason the UEFI seems not to boot efi files that is renamed. For example my arch installation named it something like arch.efi (tried installing a year ago). Renaming it to EFIboot or whatever it was (cant clearly remeber what i named it, sorry), made the system boot arch. Also, if i remember right. You cannot partition with fdisk, but have to use gparted when partitioning this.

The second problem is the Nvidia F_K_N_G Optimus problem. Even when i yayed after hours of failure, but atlast got it to boot. The next problem was optimus. Even if there are some support. I simply couldnt dig down and fix it with bumblebee (all dependencies was missing when i tried to install it).

I have this laptop and it runs under Xubuntu 12.04. Mint runs also and certainly Ubuntu and Kubuntu. I failed to install Suse. It was not posssible to install it from CD, but a boot stick works properly.
Hint: ACPI has to be disabled.
This is really a great device and “Made in Germany”. Display is excellent and the noise level very low. Bumblebee works as well.

Linux is simply unusable with this laptop.
I tried many different distributions and the laptop simlpy can't boot any of the installation media. The Problem lays in the SATA-Controller. Somehow it can boot iff I deactivate the SATA-Controller in the BIOS-Setup. However, then you can't install the distribution because there is no hard drive available :D

Note: The Problem is really the SATA-controller, not the AHCI-option.
