I have a brand new Dell XPS 13 Plus (9320) delivered with Windows 11 preinstalled.
I have had no end of problems trying to install Zorin Os 16.2. The aim was to install Zorin alongside Windows Dual boot, 800GB Zorin, The remaining (200GB) Windows.
Right from the off, when booting Zorin form the USB drive, there was no access to WiFi an no Sound (Only sound device reported "Dummy Output"). Also, Fractional scaling for the display was presented as an option but would only work at 100% and 200%.
Many items I read point to the configuration of the BIOS (excuse my ignorance on matters Windows) But these are the options that I am now currently using (and I have tried cold booting)
- Secure Boot: Off
- Enable Microsoft EFICA: On
- Secure Boot Mode: Audit Mode
- Enable Camera: On
- Enable Audio: On
- Enable Microphone: On
- Enable Internal Speaker: On
- ATA/NVMe operation: AHCI/NVMe
- WLAN: On
- Bluetooth: On
- Enable UEFI Network Stack: Enabled
- Fastboot: Thorough
- Extend BIOS POST Time: 5 seconds
At one point I used the Storage RAID option and that resulted in an unbootable system and I had to call DELL to get me out of trouble!
The BIOS configuration above now at leasts will boot Zorin but - no Wifi, No Sound, Only 100%and 200% display scaling.
Booting from Windows 11 there is no problem with Sound, WiFi or fractional scaling.
When booted from Zorin, If I connect my phone via USB and enable USB tethering on the mobile 'phone I can also access the internet.
I am at a loss!!!
Can anyone suggest how I may get WiFi and Sound and hopefully fractional scaling to work?
