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.

Do you mean "F4 Options" --> "HP laptop"? If so, it adds some long and obscure boot options that make the backlight work better on D.O.'s HP laptop. You can see what the actual boot options are by selecting this option and then pressing F12 which shows you all the current boot options. This is a useful trick that I use a lot. I just checked the bootloader source code and the actual options it enables are:
Code:
video.use_bios_initial_backlight=0 video.brightness_switch_enabled=1

If you use "F1 Help" in the bootloader, the "F4 Miscellaneous Options" section will tell you:
Quote:
HP laptop
Some HP laptops need a cheat to get brightness working correctly.

Thanks BitJam. I'll use it then. I usually use redshift but it can't hurt to use the cheat code I guess. Thanks again bro.

I was right (lucky me). It's a triple booter now. Looks like the Puppy Grub boot loader modified Windows boot loader so Now I can boot Windows 7, Slack0 5.7, and MX-14 from MX-14 grub 2 menu.

I just pick Windows on /dev/sa1 and that throws me to the Puppy/Windows boot screen to pick from there.

Side note. I had a error 111 smart drive fail warning right after saying everything was ready to install. Asking me if I wanted to abort.
So I aborted and started over from scratch again.
So I reformatted again manually and still recieved that warning.
/ is 10gig ext4, /home is 80 gig ext4, /swap is 4 gig.
I said to heck with it and installed any ways. If this hard drive is failing.
Well. i guess I'll buy a SSD and start over. Just thought I'd mention the warning.
In case it comes up in some body elses install procedure.

Roky, this Slashdot item: Endurance Experiment Writes One Petabyte To Six Consumer SSDs may be of interest to you. The story they link to describes the death throes of 3 different ssd drives.
