Installing Zorin OS on tablet?

Postby thisiwonder » Fri Jun 14, 2019 10:09 am

Hello!

I was wondering, is it possible to install Zorin OS on a tablet computer if it matches the system requirements? Is the Zorin OS made to be used on tablets also?

Thank you :)

Zorin should be installable on a tablet looking at the promotional video but how to do it? I have just looked at the installation guide that Zorin provides but only for a computer - I will PM AZorin. ;) :D

Hello,
Zorin OS can be installed on PC (Intel x86) based tablets if the hardware configuration is supported by available drivers under Linux.

Does that mean that this tablet is compatible?

One thing I can tell you, is that there is no way your going to install it on a Google Android tablet or an Apple tablet. Both tablets are equally locked preventing you from installing other OS's. But if its a PC based tablet like a Windows tablet, you might be able to over-ride it and install Zorin. I don't know anything about Dell tablets, but that sounds like a PC tablet to me, as long as its not running Android or Apple IOS lol.
