Running Fedora 26 on HP ElitePad 900

Hi folks,

I'm doing some "research" about installing F26 on an HP ElitePad 900 that used to run Windows 8.1

The specs are
Processor Atom Z2760 @ 1.8GHz
Memory 2GB
Hard Drive SanDisk SEM64g - 64GB
Connections Wifi
Form Factor 10.1" Tablet

I've tried Google searching on this forum and the web with limited success.
What little I've seen suggests this isn't possible, yet I've installed previous versions of Fedora on Intel Atom dual cores.

Has anyone tried this using Fedora?
If not have you heard of any other distros that may be suitable.

According to the Google forums Android won't install, and neither will an older version of Ubuntu Touch.

Main computer - Ex-lease Dell Latitude E6410, Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, 160 GB hdd, Fedora 20 64 bit

"Thus, or perhaps better!"

Re: Running Fedora 26 on HP ElitePad 900

try the lighter xfce or lxde spins if you can manage to disable secure boot, setting an admin password is sometimes necessary within OEM BIOS to access this setting but be careful to make a note of the password for future reference or remove it again striaght afterwards. it may also be necessary to install to a USB thumb drive rather than the internal storage.

I think workstation itself maybe a bit too resource intensive for that system to deal with, in theory there is no reason it shouldn't run one of lighter spins. in practice it depends just how restrictive the HP configuration is because searching the internet gives me the impression you won't likely get far with it either.
