I supose its good to know you don't normaly do this at home, but i also have a quedtion. What brands of laptops have you had succsess with running bsd on? I tested a few and well. I notice a paytern in some of them so just curius what had worked in your experience
@Twelve Well, I've installed BSD in general on the following with success:
- Dell Latitude D620 (FreeBSD)
- Lenovo ThinkPad x230 (OpenBSD)
- Asus Eee PC 901 (OpenBSD)
- Toshiba Portege M400 (OpenBSD)
Ok thanks, i gotten some more laptops to test, but i feel like i can pretty comftervally say bsd will not work on an hp, tried 3/4 hp laptops i own and none of them work. Will however test all the ones i own just to make sure and mabye make a list that may be usefull for someone in the future
@Twelve I've installed FreeBSD on an old HP laptop and it worked fine (CPU was a Pentium M I believe). I also have it running on an HP ProLiant ML350 G5 server.
I never gotten bsd to boot on any of my elitebooks (8440p, 8560p and 8530w), i want to test thw last one i have and see if i have any more luck on it
It dose not exist, or even with the guide i cannot find it. I tried looking it up, and see no signs of it even suporting secure boot.
