    Question check Hardware compatibility via LIVE CD

    Hi

    Can i use LIVE CD to verify that ubuntu has all drivers present for a certain desktop PC?


    Before i purchase this expensive PC i want to ensure ubuntu has all drivers for it.

    Specs are :

    Processor Intel Core i7 3770
    Motherboard Intel DH77KC
    2 HD Western Digital 500 GB
    4 LAN cards.

    I will use this server to run virtual machines, run solaris etc.
    as i think Solaris will not install on this machine directly because of drivers issues
    I also plan to run ubuntu server version on this system

    If you have access to it, yes. It will certainly help.

    If you open a terminal and do

    Code:
    lspci -nnk
    it will list devices and kernel modules loaded
