What model HP ?
HP Pavilion a530n
Athlon64 3200+ (2GHz)
Networking I can't answer, never done it.
The 9-in-1 card reader will read my sans disks from my camara.
The main things to try are:
* firewire (if it has it)
If you remember the model number sfor the Gateway and Compaq
please post them so I can create an appropriate annotation
in the document I'm building.
This is the one that wouldn't boot a normal iso and you did the one to
get past the keyboard.
It would boot with that iso, but the laptop's keyboard would not work
after boot. If a usb
keyboard was attached and then booted the usb keyboard would work, but
could not get the
laptops keyboard to work even then.
Gateway 7422GX (AMD64 3400+) I hope to install this weekend as a dual
boot till I am sure it
all works and I can learn enough to set-up a network.
Specs here: https://www.gateway.com/home/products/ret/ret_7422gx.shtml
Running the live cd
Card reader reads Sans Disks from camara
USB cordless mouse works
Read and write to SanDisk USB cruzer mini
Has firewire, but not tested.
