    Default What distro for Acer Extensa 5620?

    Specs for an Acer Extensa 5620, would like to know what distribution I will need, I have looked into iPC, the only thing I am not sure about them is what kexts do I install and what should I keep default. Such as what applications, fixes and patches I need.

    If anyone knows where I could go to find out this information myself, or if you know yourself, I would appreciate it.
    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Booting up OSx86, I get the Apple icon when it is loading, after it loads up though my screen becomes very pixelated. This makes it impossible for me to see whatever may be showing on the display, in turn prevents me from using the OS.

    I think it has something to do with my mobile video card, ATI Radeon HD2400XT, but I am not sure..

    Installation customization choices:

    Videos Drivers>ATI>ATI Radeon HD 2400 PCIE
    Chipset Drivers>Intel ICHx SATA Drivers
    Audio Drivers>ALCxxx>ALC883(Realtek ALC883 Azalia (HD))
    Ethernet Drivers>AppleBCM5751Ethernet(Broadcom 5787M)
    Wireless Drivers>Broadcom Driver(Intel PROSet/Wireless 3945)
    USB Drivers>Patched USB Drivers
    Power Management>PowerManagement Package + Clamshell Display Support
    Fixes and Patches>Shutdown/Restart Fix + USB Mount Fix
    PS/2 Device Support>PS/2 Keyboard Fix
    AppleSMBIOS Patch>AppleSMBIOS-27 Rev3 800MHz
    Alternate Bootloaders>Chameleon with SMBIOS/Custom Boot Picture
    Applications>AppleHADPatcher + DeepSleep Widget + OSx86 Tools Utility + Kext Helper b7


    Thanks.

    *UPDATE*

    Mobility chips just don't seem to work, if anyone know hows I can still get this working though, please let me know
