What Linux distro is more suitable for ASUS X550ZE ?


I tried Ubuntu-family distros (different releases), openSUSE, Fedora (can't install), Manjaro, Linux Mint, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Debian and CentOS didn't work at all - problems are everywhere. For instance on Ubuntu my HDD is clicking, but it's surely healthy. I tried to solve problems in those distros.
If someone knows distro that works properly on this laptop, please let me know.

Hardwareinfo of your computer?

You have to buy a linux distro, like Opensuse 42.1, Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS and so on.

Fedora is Beta Software.

I didn't know an operating system could make a hard drive click. Usually a clicking hard drive means, hurry and backup before your hard drive completely takes a poo. Healty? thats questionable.
