new bios firmware for the e585: support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds503790 - probably doesn't solve anything for me though, but after installing (after I figure out how) I'll probably be able to reduce the kernel flags/mappings I'm using...

Q: (Ubuntu 19.04) NFS share won't automount at boot: 'mount.nfs: Network is unreachable' -- I am completely stumped!
