Thanks for the fast reply, I installed and tested, and the upgrade "just works" from 4.2 to 4.8. Very nice!  :D

Interesting numbers...

Was poking around looking at the Hardware database... 31,883 total devices.. Pretty impressive knowing that's not every system.. But by volunteer, still nice numbers..

I've also noticed an influx of UEFI type questions (makes sense with Win7 going bye)..

So the post...  Hense why posting in the UEFI thread.. of the 31,883 PC's ...

4,214 of those have a UEFI bios...    --  search:
Code: [Select]
uefi
3,763 are running in legacy mode    -- search:
Code: [Select]
uefi [Legacy]
451 are using the UEFI enabled LL version.  --  search:
Code: [Select]
uefi:
So I thought.. Might be interesting to see the numbers and have a "line in the sand", see how things increase as more Win7'ers come over...


Just thoughts

If I'm reading this right, the test UEFI distro of LL boots from removable media ok but can be problematic when installing to a HDD, I'm looking to create a rescue only flash drive and am thinking the UEFI offering would be the best option.

I have at least 1 Dell Latitude E4310 that is UEFI, using 3 and promised 1 to a friend who helped me out late last year, I'll install the test version on that tonight and let you know, I'd be very grateful if this project succeeded will help in other ways if it does.
