  1. Hi This laptop seems to be OK with regards to the hardware but I'm having loads of problems getting the install done without a load of flags, and then booting afterwards not in safe boot mode. I used the UniB method to create the USB inside a VM but needed to run the installer with the following flags to get it to work: -x -v -f apci=off cpus=1 PCIRootUID=1 GraphicsEnabler=No All installed OK then booted into safe boot after that with the same flags. Without the flags the error I got was a local apic kernel error which I am led to believe is commonplace with HP laptops. Can anybody point me in the right direction to get past the booting with numerous flags so I can get a clean boot and then get the missing bits and pieces after that? Not bothered which method I use I'd just love to get it working! It looks like it works for other people See here but I'm falling at the first hurdle and any help would be much appreciated! The laptop specs are below: General Class Ultrabook Operating Sistem Windows 7 Body Dimensions 12.46 in x 0.57 in x 8.84 in Weight 1.59 kg (3.5 lb) Color Black, Gray Display Size 13.3 inches Resolution 1366x768 LED Yes 3D No Processor Name Intel Chipset Intel HM76 Graphics Type Integrated card Name Intel GMA HD 4000 Memory Capacity 4 GB Type DDR3 Storage Capacity 128 GB Type Solid State Drive (SSD) Interface SATA Optical Type No Networking LAN 1000 mbps Wifi Yes (802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n) Bluetooth Yes Version:4.0 Modem No Infrared No Wimax No UWB No Interfaces USB 2 Powered while off:Yes HDMI Yes LAN RJ-45 ESata No Thunderbolt No FireWire No Microphone Microphone in 3.5mm Headphone Audio out 3.5mm Card Reader SD, MMC Multi Purpose DriveBay No Docking Station Port No Devices Keyboard - Pointing Touchpad (2 Buttons, Multitouch) Camera Yes Microphone Yes Security Features - Baterry Cells 4 cells Type Li-Ion Capacity 45 WHr Autonomy 8 Hours
