    Default Best Distro for Gateway FX P-7908u

    Which distro should I try? I have the standard specs except I have dual 500GB drives. Would really like some input from the gurus here.

    Thank you!

    Hi,
    So what is your standard specs? If you could give more information specifically then it will be much better.
    Regards,

    Gateway FX P-7908u
    Intel Centrino2 2.53Ghz
    4GB DDR3
    Dual 500GB Drives
    GeForce GTX 260M CUDA 1GB

    iATKOS i5 Will boot the installer, but wont see the 1TB Raid array, It sees 2 500GB Drives. I tried building a soft-raid array but it fails.

    Hi,
    OSX installer and soft RAID will be very hard. Unless you have hardware RAID, with proper driver loaded, otherwise it is very tough.

    This laptop raid control only supports 3 modes
    1: Single Drive, 2nd drive ignored
    2: Mirrored
    3: Striped

    Would I reburn the dvd with the drivers loading at boot time?
