Acer Aspire 4720

Homepage: Specification


Acer Aspire 4720

Mark: Bad

It is an Intel core duo processor, with 2 GiB of memory, 250 GiB HDD, DVD writer, Broadcom gigabit NIC, Intel 3945abg wireless NIC, 1280x800 screen, and Windows Vista.

I used the Vista tools to shrink the existing partitions, then installed eCS 2.0 RC4 (with very much difficulty). Eventually, I was able to get enough of it to work, that it can be useful. The main item that does not work (yet), is the wireless NIC. I had to abandon the ACPI support, to get the Broadcom NIC to work, and I am able to get it into 2 processor mode, using OS2APIC.PSD. More work to be done, but I think it will work, eventually.
