Hi nikos,

Before I buy yet another laptop, I want to try AspireOS on an old laptop I have laying around. It seems to run Amithlon just fine (With VESA for the Video). What do you think about this one:

HP Compaq nc6230:

  1. Intel 1.8 gigahertz Pentium M processor
  2. 1GB ram
  3. 80 gig 5,400 rpm hard drive
  4. Intel 2200 pro b/g wireless networking card
  5. Broadcom 1 gigabit integrated Ethernet card
  6. 56k modem
  7. ATI x300 64 mb graphics card
  8. 14-inch XGA screen (1024×768)
  9. CDRW/DVD ROM drive (24x)
nikos
amigamia: Sorry, but not something I would use for AspireOS. VESA mode sucks and neither your Ethernet or WiFi card will work. I would also definetly go with a SSD. I use Kingston 60GB SSD for my laptops. Very cheap and nice.
amigamia
Got it! Dell D520 it is... :)

amigamia: If you have problems with installing from CD I send you a USB-stick with AspireOS for free. Just pm me :)

AROS running Remote Desktop with Windows 7 pro.

I have a Dell D520 on its way from eBay but if you can post an img file so I ca dd to a usb stick that would be great too ;)
nikos
amigamia: That is not possible. You need to install AROS or AspireOS to a Smart file system formated USB drive and if you are going to do that you need to install from some virtual player running AROS.
Just pm me your address and I send AspireOS to you on a USB stick. That saves you a lot of trouble :)
When you get that stick you can easily install to your internal drive.
amigamia
Hi nikos,

While waiting for the USB stick (Thanks a million!) I tried to download the ISO of Aspire OS 2.1 and boot from the CD but I have tried already several CDs + different burners and it does not seem to boot? I thought It was the DVD player on the D520 but I tried other linux DVDs and it works fine. Plus, the Aspire OS 2.1 CD are not booting on other laptops I have around. Can you check?
amigamia
I can confirm it does not boot as a mounted ISO on Virtual Box either.

Error: FATAL Could not read from the boot medium! System halted.
nikos
Amigamia: boots on my machine but optical can be picky. What is your bios version? Stick sent on monday :)
