ubuntu on hp 6735s: common afterinstall guidelines

I’ve been installing OSes on HP 6735s for several years already.
There’s a strange bug (or feature?): I can hardly install anything from bootable media.
Often, it just doesn’t boot.

I have never successfully installed anything from my USB sticks on this laptop. I always used CD/DVD.
The only solution which works so far is:

  1. Make bootable CD
  2. Make option “Boot from CD” first in your boot list in BIOS
  3. Start booting without CD
  4. Press ESC and then F9, Boot Options screen will open
  5. Insert your CD into tray
  6. Select “Boot from Upgrade Bay”
  7. Enjoy!

Don’t ask me, why this works. It’s just pure magic by HP.

After installing ubuntu on your hp6735s laptop it’s quite good to execute the following commands:



  • sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    and add
    options snd-hda-intel model=mobile
  • sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options
    and add
    options snd-hda-intel model=mobile
  • that’s if your sound isn’t working :)
