Hmm, after googling it seems some of those Transformer models are not linux friendly. There are reports of no driver for the SD card reader and models earlier than yours needed firmware to use the sound card. You might be able to use hints from: https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Asus/T100TA to get the sound working, even though the model is older than yours. Dan
