Yesterday was only the beginning (actually, it was only the midpoint as the struggle began Tuesday). I was unable to get the Acronis restore point to boot. Using it to create the partition as a workaround for Win7’s inability to do so didn’t work either. Eventually I was able to create a partition using the CLI. Then I abandoned the restore point and went for a fresh install. Now I’m faced with another problem; getting the touchscreen to work.
Will it even? As mentioned yesterday, I’ve come to find that Lenovo has created multiple, similarly named versions of the Thinkpad 11e. There’s a Chromebook and a Windows version with 20D9 and 20DA variants. What’s the difference between the 9 and A? Who knows? The drivers page seems to be the only place Lenovo makes the distinction… and even there they’re not clear. To make matters worse, the 20DA designations persist across variants regardless of their yoga or lack yoga distinctions. That is to say, there’s a Lenovo Thinkpad 11e and a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 11e, and each has a 20DA version. Get your shit together Lenovo. Hopefully all 6(?) Thinkpad 11e’s feature multi-pressure sensitivity. That’s the only reason I bought it.
I settled on my favorite tech support system in the whole wide world. I already have an account there. And it has the added benefit of potentially publicly embarrassing companies into, at the very least, going through the motions. Twitter:
Meanwhile, @Acronis has already assured me that I’ll I have to do is DM them and they’ll help me troubleshoot yesterday’s fiasco. How wonderful would it be to wake up today to the sounds of tweeting solutions? To be continued…
