wanna try deepin 15


Hello reader! I once had a dual boot win7/Ubuntu system but I used win7 mostly so I am still a newbee to linux. I recently bought a hp-notebook with win10 installed. I find it slow and annoying. So, Iam ready to replace it with a linux version. I read some good reviews on the internet on Deepin15 and want to install that. But, looking through the 'newbee alert' post with 50 linux based systems on this same forum, I do not see Deepin15. The deepin15 forum itself is still a step too far for me as I am still in the 'how to install' phase.
Any deepin users that feel like giving me some tips?

Hi & Welcome to LQ.

I only used Deepin for about 2 weeks.
Deepin is based on Debian Unstable and it ran well on my desktop but it wasn't for me.
Everything ran well and the wifi worked right out of the box.

Basically you would download Deepin and burn the .iso image to a CD/DVD. (see the second link)

https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=deepin
https://www.deepin.org/en/download/

OR> If you'd prefer not to use up all of your CD's and DVD's......
You could try Deepin without installing it install Virtual Box or one of the other VM on your Windows 10 machine.

-::-Before you go to install Linux Deepin (if you want to keep Windows) you will have to shrink your Windows partition to make room for your Linux installation.-::-

Since your HP is new I suspect that it is a UEFI machine. That means you will have to go into the BIOS and disable the 'secure boot' and 'quick boot' and the like before installing Linux.

Good luck and enjoy Linux.
