    Default What distro works with this notebook ?

    i have an HP Pavilion dv6-3019wm notebook, and i was wondering what distro should i use to install, since Leo4all seems to stop loading after the Darwin bootloader.

    Here are the specs according to CPU-Z and GPU-Z









    Please note, i have a recovery partition that i dont want to lose, and my computer also came with Splashtop Linux [ HP QuickWeb and HP calls it ], and i really want to keep both. if i have to lose Splashtop, fine, but i NEED the recovery partition.

    So what distro should i use? i DO have the Original Snow Leopard disc so if anyone wants to throw in instructions for that, thats fine.

    Also i must mention, i can only boot from a USB. if i absolutely need to use the DVD discs, fine, but as of now im only working with an 8 Gig USB Flash drive.

    It's AMD system, so your options would be iDeneb, iAtkos, Hazard or retail DVD if you wish.

    Have you searched for it?
    There are many guides available, unless you can't find one.

    I've searched, but there hasnt been a detailed guide, or a guid that mentions if anything breaks after installing from USB. plua, many of the guides are on how to install it to a USB as a Live CD, and not from a USB to the Hard Drive. i need my USB so i just want to install it to the hard drive, then wipe the USB Stick.

    And i just found an iDeneb CD i burned a while back, its 10.5.6, i tried it and got a kernel panic as soon as it started.. which appears to be exactly what happened with Leo4all.. but Leo4all booted in verbose and showed nothing but the _ on the screen. iDeneb booted with an Apple logo, then immediately to the screen that said "You need to restart your computer. Hold the power button down for several seconds..." And that in several languages...

    Any boot flus i should try? or anything at all?
