Testing GNU/Linux live cds on HP 250 G6 2SX60EA

febrero 18, 2019

These are some live cds that I tested in an HP 250 G6 2SX60EA laptop and their simple results:

  • Rescatux 0.51b3: Show “Progress linux” prompt. This CLI mode does not let me log in with Debian Live default user and password.
  • Rescatux 0.62b1 (This is a private release, not a public one): Show “Progress linux” prompt. This CLI mode does not let me log in with Debian Live default user and password.
  • debian-live-9.7.0-amd64-gnome.iso: Show “Progress linux” prompt. This CLI mode does not let me log in with Debian Live default user and password.
  • debian-live-testing-amd64-gnome.iso: Graphical desktop but without wifi.
  • ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64.iso: Graphical desktop and wifi.
  • debian-live-testing-amd64-gnome+nonfree.iso: Graphical desktop and wifi.

The next batch of tests were done using Super Grub2 Disk 2.02s10 and trying to boot into all the OSes available on the system as it comes from the factory.

  • Boots into FreeDOS ok when booted in BIOS mode.
  • It is not able to boot HPDOCS (that’s normal because it is started from a syslinux.cfg file).
