    Thumbs up Which distribution to use on AMD Laptop?

    So, I have an AMD Turion 64 X2 (TL-58) powered laptop, with a ATI Radeon X1200 GPU. I really need to figure out some way to triple boot it with Win 7 and Ubuntu. I have tried several times in the past, however I failed each time. However, that was like 2 years ago when the whole hackintosh thing started. Are there any distros that could be installed on my computer and work well enough?

    Here are my detailed specs, if anyone actually wants to bother to read them :

    Basically I have a Broadcom Wifi + Ethernet NIC, plus a Broadcom Bluetooth adapter, and a X1200 GPU, both of which greatly malfunction. Like, I unplug a vga or ethernet cable, and the pc BSODs. Heck, I can't use a bluetooth mouse anymore!

    Be prepared to handle a constant barrage of difficulties that you just mentioned. Did you think that you could just install Mac OS X and that everything would work, think again. You also do not have what I would call an ideal platform for installing Mac OS X to begin with. Your CPU and GPU are NOT supported for a vanilla installation and you will have to start with a hacked distro...........good luck.
