 8)Hi.Just installed peppermint 7 alongside Ubuntu 17.04 on my old HP elitebook.Sorry ,I dont know how to get the hardware info from the terminal to this forum.It is a dual core Elitebook with a new SSD installed as well as a 1TB 5400 rpm data drive.The only issue I had was that it was neccessary to disconnect the data drive in order the get the installer to see the SSD.After that,it installed flawlessly,automatically partitioning the SSD into two equal halves,plus swap.Since I have been using Ubuntu for almost a year,I am having some trouble finding stuff on this Windows-ish distro!!!The main reason I want to try Peppermint is to Convince my brother to ditch Windows when I visit him in a couple of months.So far everything works fine,with the help of three different youtubers.Very helpful.
