I have a hp tx2510us tablet notebook, so far it can only run Vista...

I have tried to install 8.04 and it worked, I just didn't have time enough to find out how to install all drivers, the tutorial I followed had drivers for the touch screen and the tablet device but it didn't work for me... (it was for 2500)

I downloaded 8.10 and intalled, i had to disable acpi, as usual for tx series...

Running from the cd the installer runs normal after a long time trying to fix something in some device....

It install and reboot... but after that I can't boot from HD...

I edit the grub line and add "acpi=off" but it doesn't seems to care, it just doesn't work...

I verify the battery and keep trying to do something forever...

these are some related threads I found... can someone help me?

Hmmmm

I tried "acpi=Off" with 'O' insted of 'o'
and the x kind of started...

I can see the busy cursor and it crashes...
the caps lock led starts to blink...

It worked...

I had to use "nolapic acpi=Off"

I have no ideia of what nolapic means, but it solve the problem...

Some drivers are not working, but I belive now it's easy to solve

Well done! You fixed your problem. I sometimes find talking about it helps ...

Could you mark the thread as 'solved' from the Thread Tools menu, please. Then others with the same problems might get some help here. :)

Actually, in 8.10 it is no longer needed to add the acpi=off tag. I installed 8.10 on my TX 25xx and it went just fine without any modifications. Until it came to connecting to wireless networks that is.
