Aros/Platforms/x86 Complete System HCL

LaptopsEdit

The following hardware has been tested with AROS and any issues have been noted. If you have encountered differently (i.e. problems, incompatibilities, faults, niggles, annoyances, environment, errors, review of setup etc) please update this information.

  • 2006/2007 Dell Latitude D-series laptops - business class machines, good support in Aros, easy to replace wifi card
  • 2006 some Satellite Pro A200
  • 2008 For the tiny carry anywhere, the early run of Acer Aspire netbooks
Usually avoid HP and Lenovo as the wifi card is bios locked cannot be swapped without hacking 

Please bear in mind that AROS has only a few hardware driver developers, whilst Linux counts in the tens and Windows in the hundreds. So support is very slow after some improvement after 2005/6 for a few years. So consequently, be aware that driver support on native is now a decade behind linux, MacOS(TM) and Windows(TM).

Rough estimate from taking a random laptop notebook what you can expect from a Native install of AROS

Most vendor suppliers get OEM (original equipment manufacturers) to make their laptops. These brand name companies purchase their laptops from an ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) such as Quanta, Compal, Wistron, Inventec, Foxconn (Hon Hai), Flextronics and Asus (now Pegatron) with together 80% market share and MiTAC, FIC, Arima, Uniwill, ECS, Tonfang Origin and Clevo (remaining 20%).

  • One of the better options if re-partitioning of the hard disk is not suitable or wanted is to go with AROS hosted i.e. run a small linux distro and host AROS on top. AROS can exist on a Windows(TM) install as well. See here for more information Linux hosted and [ Windows hosted] with downloads here AROS download page
  • installation needs an USB optical drive or an USB pen drive (see below)
  • PC with CD or DVD to install to a USB pendrive for boot purposes on a netbook
  • SD card sometimes can [ boot] like Dell 2100, EeePC 1001P, ASUS EeePC 900, acer aspire one d150, MSI Wind U100,

  • Late 2002, USB2.0 added and slightly better AROS sound support (AC97) appeared
  • 2002-2005 and still, to a limited extent, ongoing bad capacitors
  • Late 2003, ATX PSUs moved from 5V to 12v rails (extra 4pin on motherboard for CPU)


  • Late 2005, PCI Express replaced AGP and HDAudio replaced AC97
  • Late 2007, ATX PSUs added extra 12V PCI-E connectors and 4+4pin for CPUs
  • Late 2010, USB3.0 appears on motherboards or needing a PCI-E motherboard slot
  • Late 2014 Hardware USB2 removed from USB3 chipsets

Zen will also shift from Bulldozer’s Clustered Multithreading (CMT) to Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT, aka Intel’s Hyperthreading). CMT is the basis for Bulldozer’s unusual combination of multiple integer cores sharing a single FPU within a module, so the move to SMT is a more “traditional” design for improving resource usage

Socket LGA775 s775 (2005/8)Edit

an industry standard DDR2 module could in theory contain fallback JEDEC, intel XMP and AMD EPP configuration data

Intel PC CL5 ram modules but an "AMD" CL5 ram module the BIOS cannot read the AMD EPP info on the SPD (Serial Presence Detect) but can recognize the CL5 timing info in the JEDEC data table. PC BIOS auto configures for the AMD ram module and boots normally.

an AMD PC CL6 ram modules but an "INTEL" CL6 ram module the BIOS cannot read the INTEL XMP info on the SPD but can recognize the CL6 timing info in JEDEC data table. PC BIOS auto configures for the AMD ram module and boots normally.

an INTEL PC needs CL6 ram modules but have an "AMD" CL4 ram module. INTEL BIOS cannot read the AMD EPP info on the SPD but can recognize the CL4 timing info in JEDEC data table. PC BIOS recognizes module timings as incompatible an refuses to boot.

entirely separate issue if the RAM module timing specs are incompatible.(i.e. CL4 RAM in a "CL6 only" PC)

Chromebooks don’t officially support other OSs. You normally can’t even install as Chromebooks ship with a special type of BIOS designed for Chrome OS. But there are ways to install, if you’re willing to get your hands dirty.
