Known bugs
Sound Card- Registers 2 sound cards. Card - 1 does not work. Card-2 does.
However the sound icon in the bottom right is very buggy, sometimes you turn the volume all the way up and it turns its self down.
There are options on VLC player to choose your desired sound card. It does work, but still a little buggy.
Headphone jack does NOT work
Youtube works, video and sound are fine.
Network card - It says not found, how ever wifi works , due to importing the Broadcom drivers in the custom ISO respin
If i use a USB dongle to plug in an ethernet cord, eth0 is recognized, but it does not work. The 11IBY does not have an ethernet port.
Blue tooth works: It is an integrated bluetooth and wifi card.
HDMI- Does not work. Many reasons. The first sound card also seems to control the HDMI, yet if it is enabled the sound doesn't work.. If you enable the second sound card, the sound works, yet that particular card does not support HDMI... Tricky.. tricky
Battery- The machine charges fine,  However , the battery light will constantly blink, and the charging icon will output false information. It basically always says the battery is at a 45% charge even though it is full. When you turn the machine off the battery light will continue to blink but in orange. Even if the lid is closed.
Over all getting linux to work on this machine is difficult. I have  used the linuxuim isorespin.sh script to remaster the peppermint OS many times, using the 4.13-rc2 kernel has yielded the best results yet. It runs smooth , fast and nice. Just a few more kinks to work out. I will update here as I solve them . Or perhaps a new kernel will come out that solves them. But I doubt it. If anyone has any idea's please let me know.

Yeah I'd really appreciate it if you update this topic as you find workarounds .. they could really be helpful to others .. TIA :)

Currently I haven't had time to test Peppermint via Linuxiums isorespin.sh on these troublesome 32bit UEFI systems, so can't offer any assistance/ideas .. but I'll post when I do.

Yes I plan on it, there are no forums I can find that offer actual solutions to this particular laptop. Most of them end with " ok I returned the computer" Which is a shame. I think I might be  one of the first people to get this laptop workable in Linux. And this maybe one of the only forums that cover the topic. Most people just copy the bootia32 file into the EFI folder on their 64 bit ISO, then plug in a wireless keyboard and mouse when they realise no basic drivers work lol . Just tested the HDMI, it is also not working. My first issue I am working to resolve is the Headphone jack. I tried doing some nano editing to the analog-output-headphones.conf file , chaning the Element Speaker to
Switch = on and volume = ignore. When i rebooted and tested a video, my headphones made the clicking sound when i plugged them in , but no actual sound.. It is a step in the right direction I think. Before they didnt make a sound at all when plugging them in. It will be a rough road ahead, but worth it. Perhaps trying a few new kernels as they come out might yield some better results. Only time will tell. :)
