    Default Compatibility Check - HP Pavillion DV6500

    Hi everyone,

    Please dont shoot me down in flames here but I have looked around the forum and there seams to be a massive about of clever people on here and I would like to know if anyone can tell me if I would be able to run Leopard or maybe a older version on my laptop?

    The specs are as follows:

    Quanta Main board 30D2
    NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
    Intel Core 2 Duo t7500 @ 2.20GHz CPU
    Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
    Fujitsu MHY2250BH 250GB SATA A150 Hard Drive
    2x Netlist DDR2-666 1GB Memory

    Thanks in advance for anyone that can help this stupid newbee!

    just had a quick look through the list and mine is not listed, but i think that could be because mine is a UK only laptop

    oh i see, i think your best bet is to find an American equivalent by researching your laptop's specs. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    i have tried using the iakois 5i, I dont get any error messages as such, what i get is nothing in the list of where to install.

    I think this is because i cant get microsoft manager to work.

    What happens is as follows:

    i right click on my computer and select manage
    then click on disc manager and try to srink the size, but all it tells me is that the srink amount is 0 and wont let me do anything.

    I have a 250gb sata drive and there is 142gb free.
    From the factory the drive is partitioned, and has a D: drive that has hp recovery files on it.

    Is there any way that HP can stop you making another partition on it?
    I have even downloaded partition magic and that wont let me do anything to the drive either???


    Really really confused now!!

    Yeh I have a HP too, I managed to make the partition in the main HDD but I think was because was a new HDD, Vista just let me to use 20gb of 450gb @.@, they used 10gb to recovery, if you have another HDD I recommend you to install there, and leave the main one without change if you dont, you can use gparted, Good Luck

    just found out that my laptop is a DV6680EA!!! muppet! lol

    right, anyway, I decided to get rid of all the partitions, info everything, and put in the iakois 5i boot disc.
    I think i chose all the correct options and i can get it to install all the way, but when it restarts, I get the white screen with the logo in the middle and the moving circle following itself, and then either one of two errors:

    either the circle thing stops following itself (possible crash)
    or i get a small circle with a line through it and the circle keeps following itself, but the system does nothing.

    am I using the wrong distribution or am i doing something else wrong??
