Feedback on the Dell Precision Tower 7910 - Avalon

Asked by christen on 2015-06-11

I got a Precision Tower 7910, but with windows instead of Ubuntu, an error from DELL). I am trying to get an exchange from DELL, but not sure they will do that. In the meantime:

I tried to install Ubuntu 14.04, it did not work.
I tried to install Ubuntu 12.04, but at re-boot => no system

Where to get the DELL Ubuntu 12.04 for this machine ? I could not find a link.
How to properly configure this new BIOS I discovered ?
Can I then upgrade to 14.04 ?

Thanks in advance
Best regards

If it was an error from Dell, then they have to care for solving the problem - either by providing you with the right system, or by sending installation media to you.

As written in
"Standard images of Ubuntu may not work at all on the system or may not work well..."

About the (un-)availability of customized images for such system please see
FAQ #1523: “Where can I find a Pre-install/Manufacturer image”.

Can you help with this problem?
