Has anyone installed Snow Leopard on a folio? I got it to the point of where it starts to load the install, but it seems like gets stuck at trying to look for a mouse and it is not detecting the track pad. I have tried looking everywhere, but I cannot find much info in regards to snow leopard on this laptop.

I am using iboot haswell, being the processor is an i5, but I did have to use the boot option PCIRootUID=1 any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

You should read the Laptop FAQ and fill out your profile correctly.

Try using a USB keyboard and mouse while you install.

I will try that, thank you and I will also double check my bios settings. I was curious if maybe I was missing something.

Looking at the specs for the 9470m's, they were offered with third gen i3/i5/i7-3xxxU CPUs on the QM77 chipset.
These are Ivy Bridge, not Haswell; would using the Ivy Bridge iBoot help?

Hmmm, I can try that maybe I misunderstood I thought the i5 was haswell at least according to another post I read. I wonder if that also explained my keyboard issue.

Thank you for the reply.

Thank you for the reply.

The 9470m in your profile is Ivy Bridge (I don't think there were any Elitebook laptops with 7-series chipset/Sandy Bridge CPU). And 7-series (your motherboad chipset) does not support Haswell CPUs.

You should fix your profile as requested in the FAQ:
