I doubt that it cannot be partitioned or switched from raid or some solution possible to install Linux Lite.

Hello. What kind of info from disk utility should I be looking for or do you mean the specs you asked for?  Here they are below.

Laptop Model:  Dell Inspiron 11-3168
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) [email protected]
GPU: Intel(R) Graphics
Drive Type: HDD
Drive size: 500GB
RAM: 4GB
OS: Windows 10


Back in April the first thing I tried to do was to partition the hard drive for this laptop to accommodate a second operating system.  I can't remember all the steps I was taken through via various internet articles and related forum threads but near the end of it found out that I couldn't use a partition on this hard drive for a second operating system.  Sorry, it would take a bit of time to go back through the articles I bookmarked or what particular thing I found I couldn't do that would allow for a second OS. I'll look and see if I can find at what point I hit the wall there.

If this laptop has an SD card slot - you could make use and install LL to it and dual boot. I installed in this way on the Kangroo in my sig...
*make sure you use a high perf (speedy) card.


Upside - its more internal than a USB; you can install vs. Live... Still not as fast as internal but I dont notice on mine...


As for ClamAV
Have you followed along ---- https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/tutorials.html#antivirus
Still mostly CLI, but it is laid out very well as is everything in the manual :)

Hello.  Laptop does have a microSD slot, I never use it but this sounds like a possible workaround.  You've been able to do updates for everything with LL on SD?

I think I already looked at that ClamAV info (I will again, may have to uninstall and re-install ClamAV) but I'm thinking that maybe I'm just not being allowed to update ClamAV with it being on live LL?
