Well, had to turn off efi boot but VL6 is sitting pretty. However I"m wanting to try 7 since it's supposed to have features to help with a SSD. That is the main reason I haven't really tried getting sound working (everything acts like it works... but no sound comes out.)
...that and in spite of a respectible glxgears reading, attempting to run what I want to run is hurky jurky slow.
Anyone know how to get unetbootin working? I'm going tomorrow to a higher bandwidth location to grab the appropriate ISO and I want to try installing it there, rather than shuttle it back here and wait a few more days before I can get updates and whatever.
