I've been running Slack0 5.7 .exe inside of Windows 7 inside this Laptop. I noticed the HP F key boot cheat code but did not use it. Wifi, Tap to click, Youtube, sound all work OK. I had this laptop set up this way with Puppy because I have 4 primary partitions that came with it.
So before I figured out how to turn one into a logical partition and shrink and keep Windows 7 booting which is what I have now.
I intalled Puppy inside of Windows instead.

What is the HP F boot cheat code for. I don't think I'll need it but I thought I would ask before I run the installer. Grub install will be going to the MBR of /dev/sda. Funny part is and it is hard to explain. The Puppy install installs a grub boot loader that picks up
Windows and Puppy.
Here is the weird part. Since Puppy is installed as a program file. When one uninstalls it via Add/Remove programs in Windows 7.
Grub gets uninstalled with it. So kinda another experiment for me. I figure grub is not on MBR of drive (I am guessing with fingers crossed) So when I install MX14. I am hoping I will on my Mepis grub screen. Mepis, then Windows.
If I pick Windows. Then The Puppy Grub screen kicks in. At least that is what I hope. If not. Oh well. No biggy. I use this laptop mostly for tuning motorcyles and such. So, my only question. What is HP cheat do?
I can deal with the rest.
