HP w/AMD A10

64 bit.
This one was cranky during testing and very kernel sensitive, didn't like 3.16 at all.
Everything works OOTB since RC1.

Restarted the laptop and pressed F2 to enter SETUP. Went to "BOOT" section and changed the boot order of the devices. Set the CD/DVD Reader as the first boot device and the Hard Drive as the second.

Downloaded and wrote the ISO / Image of MX-15_x64 Fusion (24 December 2015) to a DVD. Placed the DVD in the drive and restarted the computer. Booted up to MX-15 Fusion Desktop. Clicked on the network icon and selected my network and typed in the password. Connection was established. I clicked on the install-MX15 on the desktop and was off. I already have Windows7 installed on the first partition of the hard drive. I created 3 new (ext4) partitions from empty space on the drive. 1.) / called slash. 2.) /home and 3.) a swap partition. After the install was done, it asked if I wanted to install GRUB for both windows & linux and where to write it. I said Yes and chose the MBR. Just after that MX15-Linux restarted and paused for the DVD to be removed. I removed it and pressed enter. MX15-Linux restarted the machine and I was at the MX15 64bit desktop. Sound, video, usb mouse and all just worked out of the box. It was that easy. The only thing I had to configure was my epson wf-3540 printer. I didn't install any drivers, I just used CUPS. (( Common Unix Printing System)). Now, if I could stop messing it up! :wink:

MX15-Fusion and The Lenovo G560, Seem made for each other. MX runs beautifully on the Lenovo.

While I was in SETUP, I noticed Intel "Virtual" Technology, was disabled. I enabled it.

Lenovo Thinkpad W520
1) 32 or 64bit?
-64bit
2) can you boot to the desktop?
-boots to desktop no problem
3) what works OOTB?
-Almost everything works OOTB, even have bumblebee working without issues (which I cannot say for other distros) with intel/Nvidia graphics. If using 64bit and kernel 4.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 make sure that you install bumblebee-nvidia from backports or the module won't be created.
4) what doesn't work OOTB? Did you find a fix?
-A couple buttons I don't see working are the microphone on/off button and my FN/suspend button combo. I haven't found a fix yet for the microphone, but I am able to enable/disable it in the mixer. For the suspend button I just had to turn "Handle display brightness keys" on in Xfce power managaer.
5) Comments
-This is how a linux distro should be. Works straight OOTB with no fuss. Fantastic job team! :number1:
