Uhm. Do you normaly keep your pc running for an entier day?
@Twelve This is a PC I set up at work, so it's on 24/7. My home one doesn't stay on all day.
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
@Twelve Disable Secure Boot. Of that doesn't work, enable legacy BIOS.
@Twelve also remember that with UEFI you need to use GPT partitioning.
None of that works, never found a secure boot option and allready turned of ufie bios
@Twelve Have you applied any firmware updates to those laptops? I had to do that for my ProBook to get Linux 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.
@Twelve I guess all you can do is check for BIOS firmware updates for those laptops as those might add missing features.
I may try that, but not holding too much hope, but i supose i have gotten a few laptops by now with not a lot to do so fixing one up to run bsd isn't gonna be a big deal
