Thanks allot for the tutorial!!!!
Just did it....mainly successful.
I had a few comments and questions.
I have a HP Dv2z, the specs are below:
Processor: AMD Turion™ Neo X2 Dual-Core Mobile L625 Processor (1.6GHz, 1MB L2 Cache)
Memory: 4GB DDR2 System Memory (1 Dimm) from 2GB DDR2 System Memory (1 Dimm)
Hard drive: 320GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
Graphics card: 512MB ATI Radeon™ HD Premium Graphics 3410
Display: 12.1" diagonal WXGA High-Definition HP LED BrightView Widescreen Display (1280 x 800)
Personalization: Webcam Only
Networking: Wireless-N Card with Bluetooth
battery: 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
My results were almost all positive.
I got iAtkos v7 to load via an external dvd.
I had to click or scroll on the touchpad during the instillation screen to see my progress...it seems to need this for some reason.
In the end, two things still need work:
1) the touchpad is super irratic and jumpy (as if it has the wrong driver)
Unfortunately, there are no option in the preferences/mouse pane to mod or change it.
2) The overall graphics seem rather washed out. As if the entire screen is verging on monotone.
Nothing is very crisp or bright. I definite step down from the vista palette, and looks horrible sitting next to my Mac unibody.
Anyway, thank you for your guide...I have no clue how to pm...or i would.
If anyone has found a working solution to either of these issues, please post.
I will do the same.
