A Post Because I Can – SteamOS Sucess!
Just an update, I successfully installed SteamOS under the following test rig:
- Dell Optiplex GX745
- Non-UEFI generic Intel motherboard
- Velociraptor Hard Drive
- AMD HD 5450 Low Profile Graphics Card
- HDMI/DVI Out
- 4 GB DDR2 PC26400
It was a bit tricky, as after I installed the AMD beta drivers over top of the existing fglrx proprietary drivers, I still had a black screen. The trick was to hit <TAB> + <SPACE> + <ENTER> to accept the hidden SteamOS EULA on the screen. For some reason it was not rendering through default output. After this the SteamOS update kicked off, installed, and I was away!
