Post by Zar Marco » Sun Feb 18, 2018 12:08 am

Hi all, I'm new on this forum. I've an Lenovo Legion Y520, with intel core i7 7700HQ 8GB ram and Nvidia gxt 1050 as gpu.
Will I have problems installing and using GhostBSD?

I'm not sure.

However, if it has an Intel card as well and something isn't working, you might try disabling the Intel card in bios.

For whatever reason laptops are using dual video cards now and it is tougher to get working on non-Microsoft OSes.

Unfortunately I can't disable integrated gpu on bios.
But I have a question, Can I install ghostbsd on uefi mode? Because I have installed opensuse and arch on uefi mode, but live ghostbsd start in only legacy mode

There was a with grub that prevented use to have the full support of UEFI on the livecd and if it does not boot work UEFI I not sure that UEFI would be installed with the legacy boot. It worth to try But I can't promise that will work.
