Lenovo ThinkPad W500

Lenovo ThinkPad W500

Mark: Average

(This report is prepared by ecomstation.ru scout), source of information: Lewis G Rosenthal

First impressions: eComStation 2.0 RC7 on ThinkPad W500

Model is 4062:4FU. It has the dual graphics chips (embedded Intel and discrete 512MB ATI).

  • Using Panorama for the install (the default), the system traps (D) in GRADD.SYS before making it to the install GUI. This happens with either graphics chip.
  • Using SNAP, the system boots and the install runs all the way through.

Working:

  • ACPI /SMP /APIC (both cores recognized)
  • SATA
  • DVD
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • USB
  • Video (SNAP, as VBE)
  • HDA (yes, UniAUD seems to handle this chip with no clipping, though there is no volume control and it is loud, distorting the output)

Not working:

  • Proper wide-screen resolution (Panorama would do this, but see above)
  • Wired NIC (Intel 8086:10BF)
  • Wireless NIC (Intel 8086:4237)
  • Bluetooth (obviously)
  • Firewire (obviously, though I did not test whether I could see it with the Firewire driver we have)

Unknown/untested:

  • Power management
  • Firewire (see above)
  • external video
  • CardBus
  • DVD burning
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Active Shock Management (or whatever that's called...I forget right now!)
  • Cellular (mobile broadband)

I will check the bug tracker for the Panorama issue, but if anyone is aware of anything similar, please advise.

Notes: The problem of Panorama VESA described above was fixed during the spring 2010.
