    HCL for EEPC v6

    SCtbe

      Hi,

       

      Is there a real Hardware Compatiblity List for EEPC v6.

       

      For example I can deduce form KB69570 that Panasonic Toughbook CFT8E is not supported, but what with the rest of device.

      Should I assume that I can deploy EEPC to any machine, and then wait for black screens, no booting systems and other "funny" issues?

       

      I know that RTOS used in EEPC is very tolerant system for different BIOS and device types, but not for all.

       

      Maybe there is a list for non-compatible hardware configuration for example EFI (in fact I really don't know if it is supported or no), not supported devices, etc.

       

      Maybe McAfee have some internal documents (question to Simon) which can be requested through some NDAs.

       

      Regards.

          Are you trying to revive old debate on EEPC supported systems? As I recall last time, we did not get far.

          McAfee is not testing all different types of PC hardware, therefore is not in a position to issue such a list.

          Even those they tested, will remain mostly available to themselves, though bits an pieces might get to KB or even release notes.

            Peter,

             

            Did I mentioned somewhere about software compatibility?

            Also you are joking, right? Peter where you got such information? Are you working in McAfee as QA engineer?

            I  personally do not believe that McAfee not tested many PC/laptop configurations, and theses tested should be listed on public available list like other vendors tend to do.

              Just search this public forum, you will know where I'm coming from. No, I do not work for McAfee.
