Re: List of laptops

Saved!

Have found that problems with booting on older Macbook Pro laptops hinders us from taking Porteus into wide usage. I've thought about including rEFInd and its setup scripts on the live image. Would this be a good idea? Have someone here done it before?

Re: List of laptops

Great! What BIOS/UEFI settings did you change, and how? A per-button and per-menu description is very interesting to me! :)
