|Hewlett-Packard||EliteBook 2170p||no||OI hipster-20190308. Wireless does not work. See Bug 10556 for details. Everything else works.||Gary Mills|
|Hewlett-Packard||2710p||yes, oi_151a7||ACPI works, no Wacom driver. Everything works fine, secondary port for graphics card listed as unknown, but external display works.||Bryan Iotti|
|Hewlett-Packard||DV 6000||yes||Works perfectly, including graphics, sound and usb|
|Hewlett-Packard||EilteBook 8760w||yes, oi_151a7||WiFi fails from time to time, set "set apix_enable=0" in /etc/system to work-around illumos issue #1723, SDcard works, NVIDIA Graphics work (3D accelerated), webcam works, USB3 works not of course (no driver), suspend does not work correctly||Olaf Bohlen|
|Hewlett-Packard||EliteBook 6930p||yes, oi_151a7||Works: WiFi, Ethernet, no driver issues after disabling Intel MEI/AMT. AMD Radeon HD 3400 only works for 2D acceleration, due to missing KMS. Incomplete ACPI support: no suspend, low battery life (2hrs).||Bryan Iotti|
|Lenovo||ThinkPad X1 Carbon 20A7004HRT||/hipster (July 2014 ISO)|
Installed OI from USB drive (switched it to USB 2.0 mode in BIOS). Also selected legacy boot.
Gigabit Ethernet (Intel l218-V) works with e1000g0 driver.
Sound card (ddu detects Intel Haswell-ULT and Intel Lynx Point-LP HD Audio controllers) is detected, but it seems doesn't work.
Video adapter (Intel Haswell-ULT Integrated audio controller, Intel HD 4400) is recognized as VESA, but supports 1600x900 resolution
FN and functional "keys" work in general.
Trackpad seems to be too sensitive and behaves strange
|Lenovo||ThinkPad Edge E335||yes, oi_151a5 - oi_151a7|
The laptop has no CD drive but can boot off a USB device; to install OI I used a USB HDD with grub4dos in first partition booting an oi_151a5 ISO image and a second 1GB partition with the USB image. Note that the right (yellow USB 2.0) port MUST be used during such setup.
Gigabit Ethernet (Realtek) works, especially (more stable) with an updated
Sound system includes several devices (Realtek audio powering the speakers/mini-jack, and AMD Radeon HDMI audio), both driven as audiohd; in my case Realtek was detected as dsp1/mixer1/audio1/etc. and I had to replace the links (/dev/dsp /dev/audio /dev/mixer etc.) to force it to be used for sound by default. ALSA audio driver mode works, but with hicccups; OSS and SunAudio play music okay, but quite a bit too quiet in my testing (like 10% of the volume on the same system under another OS).
Video adapter (AMD Vision E2 APU including the CPU and Radeon GPU) is not recognized as a "radeon" by "modload /kernel/drv(/amd64)/radeon" nor by X11, but works in correct resolution (1366*768) as "vgatext". Heavy video performs poorly (movies, videocamera tests), but during normal work/reading/browsing/development lags are nearly unnoticeable.
NOTE: The keyboard does not include such keys as Pause/Break and SysRQ/ScrlLock. Some can be emulated (Fn+P, Fn+B, etc.), but I did not manage to find all of them. There is also only a power LED indicator, so you don't see HDD working, CAPS lock, etc. NumLock and at least an emulated numeric keypad are missing altogether.
According to repairs docs, some variants of this laptop model can include an additional MiniPCI socket for WAN (3G modem) or mSATA SSD; my laptop does not have this feature soldered on (or I failed to find it).
|Lenovo||ThinkCenter m91p||yes||Aurélien Larcher|
The Intel Wifi Link 1000
and 6300 do NOT work. The NIC is an Intel 82579LM
The NVidia GPU works well with the nvidia driver.
USB3 is not
illumos, and therefore don't expect it to work.
eSATA port works fine, but you'll have to use cfgadm to "reconfigure" the device so it picks up the plugged in disk.

|Lenovo||ThinkPad T520 (4240-5NG)||yes|
151a8/hipster: No support for Realtek RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter. No support for Integrated Intel VGA (generic VGA driver is used - 1024x768 only).
Workaround for illumos bug #1369: echo "set dump_plat_mincpu=0" >> /etc/system
Workaround for illumos bug #1723: echo "set apix_enable=0" >> /etc/system
The Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 does NOT work. As noted for T520 it is not supported by Illumos.

|Graphics Intel HD 3000 (Sandy Bridge) suffers from bug 8049 on the laptop's primary display if ||Michal Nowak|
|Works, with VESA graphics driver. No Wacom driver for Xorg. Audio works through headphone output, no internal speaker. Disable system bell to avoid freezes. No 56k modem. ACPI works for battery status, no brightness adjustment. Networking and Wifi work.||Bryan Lotti|
cardbus does not work. nvidia driver does not fully support NV6200 Go chipset.
|yes, oi_151a8||Driver: VESA||Ankita Davis|
|Toshiba||Satellite L855 (PSKACE)|
AMD Radeon HD 7670M Graphics requires KMS driver, which we don't have, so VESA only. Unfortunatelly display's native resolution is 1366x768 but the this resolution is not one of VESA modes, so 1024x768 or 800x600 has to be used, which renders the screen blurry. HDMI nor VGA (D-Sub) work.
Integrated Ethernet controller Atheros AR8161 is not supported, nor is Atheros AR9485 mini-PCI WLAN.
What works: ACPI, battery statistics, chipset in general (Intel C216), sound (Intel HDA), SATA disks in AHCI mode, VT-x (tested in illumos KVM), touchpad, USB (both EHCI & xHCI) for input devices and storage.
