on this kind of hosts ?

Hi there,
I’m running an nvidia/intel Asus laptop as well (just slightly older),
and Haiku runs without a hitch (I’m using it full time since
waddlesplash resolved a few lingering issues over the summer). My
belief is that Haiku really doesn’t care about the graphic card, since
every display operation (including openGL and video) is done at the
CPU level for now.

I did, however, have to fiddle with the EFI bootloader. I assume
you’ve already read these pages:
https://www.haiku-os.org/guides/uefi_booting
https://github.com/jessicah/haiku-private/wiki#user-content-building-a-bootable-usb-disk

Thanks for bringing those up :-)

Annd I just realized that UEFI loader zip was empty.  I just re-uploaded it.

zip -r is important :-)
