Device Description

The Toshiba Tecra Z50 is a laptop family powered by fourth-generation Intel Core processors (formerly "Haswell").

Support Status

  • Tecra Z50 - Green (Console OS works well on this device)

The Toshiba Tecra Z50 is supported for Console OS Developer Release 1. Currently the NFC reader and the fingerprint scanner are not supported.

The NFC sensor will power up - but does not function currently. We are actively evaluating the best practices to support the most-common PC NFC chipsets in Console OS. We expect this process to continue through (and after) our transition to Android 5.0, Lollipop.

We do not have plans to support the Z50's fingerprint scanner at this time. The feature would require extensive licensing to support. Console OS provides strong full disk encryption with password protection.

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.
