Dell XPS 9380 Ubuntu Image OEM?

Hi All,

I have recently purchased a Dell XPS 9380 with Windows 10. I would like to install Ubuntu (dual-boot) on this system.

This page shows me that 18.04 LTS 64-bit with the 4.15.0-1027-oem kernel is certified for this machine. Could someone tell me where I can download the OEM images from please?

I would also be interested to know the package manager URLs for any Dell specific/OEM packages that I might need - e.g. for the touchpad.

Kind regards!

Re: Dell XPS 9380 Ubuntu Image OEM?

UBUNTU is not listed as a supported os.

Dell does not have any hardware specific versions.

M2 drives might not even show up at all.

Users should go to the system BIOS (F2 on boot up) and change the SATA setting to AHCI.
Should the drive still not be seen after this change. Users should then add the following kernel argument at boot time:  nvme_load=YES

When booting to the Ubuntu media on a system that only has a PCIe based m2 drive the Installer cannot locate a hard drive
(the installer usually only looks for /dev/sdx by default).

Add the following kernel argument at boot time:

Press 12 when you see the keyboard prompt:

Press Enter to select Language.
Press F6.
Press Esc.
Modify the boot option to add "nvme_load=YES" and remove "quiet splash ---"
