…is it worth trying? I have sandybridge and ivybridge. Not in testing yet.


#6

yes it’s worth it. the package philm linked to works absolutely fine for my Ivy Bridge notebook but it’s up to you if you want to wait. I don’t have any sandy bridge to test with here.


#7

i have a Intel Sandybridge Mobile, i can test on,
if something goes wrong i’ll be able to rescue with a clonezilla back up right?


#8

Fastest is mhwd-chroot from manjaro usb :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#9

Fastest, easiest and safest is to boot directly without intel-ucode and fix it from there. :sunglasses:
