I recently picked up a very nice 17" 2008 Macbook Pro. It is a very nice looking machine, with a beautiful screen and working battery and I think it would make a wonderful Endless laptop. However I can not get it to boot the Endless installer.
It has Nvidia graphics a core2duo processor and 4GB of RAM. When I boot with an installer USB stick and select to boot from efi, the laptop mostly just hangs and on a couple tries, it actually shuts down.
This is not that important of issue, but I would like to solve it. I do not know what video drivers your installer includes. I do know that old Nvidia cards generally cannot boot from efi, but it is my understanding that the Nouveau will boot from efi.
If anyone has experience with this machine or similar hardware I would appreciate any pointers.
