Device Description

The Toshiba Satellite L55 is a popular family of 15-inch notebooks. It is powered currently by fourth-generation Intel Core processors (formerly "Haswell").

Earlier models used a third-generation Intel Core processor (formerly "Ivy Bridge").


Support Status

  • Satellite L55 - Green (Console OS works well on this device)


The Toshiba Portégé R30 is supported for Console OS Developer Release 1.

Both third and fourth-generation Intel Core processor variants will work, but you will need to upgrade to an Intel 3160 or 7260 Wi-Fi card. This will additionally add 802.11ac if you opt for a 7260-AC card. This upgrade costs as little as $15 and takes only 15 minutes to do. In most cases, it also significantly improves Wi-Fi performance, and adds Bluetooth 4.0.


Installation Instructions

You must be running the latest BIOS from Toshiba.com before installing Console OS. We only test and validate Console OS using the latest system BIOS available, and BIOS updates are critical to the performance-tuning of Console OS and the underlying UEFI firmware.
