Hardware / Lenovo ThinkPad X131e maximum RAM
« on: 2012.08.17, 17:46:32 »

My Compaq CQ57 sadly gave up the ghost  :-[ (I accidently dropped causing damage to the screen) so I’m on the market for something a little bit more durable and ultimately more compatible with eCS.

I quite like the look of the new Lenovo ThinkPad X131e. It shares the same WiFi chipset (it has a Centrino Wireless N 2230) as the other recent ThinkPad models so hopefully if/when WiFi gets sorted out it will work. Crucially, the BIOS lets users USB 3.0 ports act as USB 2.0 ports as well.

I would like to have 8GB of RAM mainly for the benefit of Linux but I was wondering if this would cause any issues with eCS?

Less importantly, I know that eCS can use up to 4GB only but is there any long-term plan to support PAE?



Utilities / Change cCS blob at bootup

Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place but I'm not sure what category this strictly fits under.

For sheer curiosity and purely cosmetic reasons, is it possible to change the text that appears next to the white blob during the initial stages of booting?

Cheers  :)
