Migrated: HP Elitebook 8760w with IGEL Universal Desktop OS Version 4.10.100


today we migrated a HP Elitebook 8760w with the IGEL Universal Desktop OS 4.10.100/4.11.100 (issue see below) and the result is ok.

WiFi: Working
Ethernet: Working
Audio: Working incl. HDMI Output
GFX Card (AMD FirePro M5950): VESA mode only, no native driver support (Single Screen / VESA max. Resolution 1920×1080 tested and working)
USB Ports: USB 3.0 (the two ports in front of the left side) not working, 3x USB 2.0 Ports working fine
Touchpad: IM PS/2 Synaptics Touchpad is working with 4.10.100 but not with 4.11.100
Webcam: Not available for this device, external WebCam is working fine if connected thru one of the working USB 2.0 ports for ICA Sessions with XenApp 6.5
Multimedia results: Very good with HDX Flashredirection (HD Quality) and also multimedia redirection.

In general the result is good, iam not happy with the VESA mode but the Laptop comes with an Intel i5 CPU and can easily compensate this for multimedia output. The max. resolution of 1920×1080 is working so we have no problem with the missing native GFX driver support. USB 3.0 support would be fine but i think this is only a question of time.. 🙂 The touchpad issue with the 4.11.100 is a pain but i hope IGEL will include missing drivers here in the future, so we have to use the working 4.10.100 until this is fixed; it’s ok for the user so it’s also ok for me at the moment. 🙂

So if you are looking for a Laptop based Thin Client (…or call it Mobile Thin Client/Mobile Cloud Client)… it might be a deal.


P.S.: This is without any guarantee, you have to test this by your own too!
