c7fb9615 98## Broken hardware
99
9b00f7ea 100The products listed in this section are known to have some serious problems or not work at all with DragonFly BSD.
c7fb9615 101
b6f85b6d 102* Asus M2N4-SLI: USB is not working on this model
1fa2090a 103
ed451045 104* Highpoint RocketRAID 17xx, 22xx, 23xx and 25xx RAID adapters: there is no driver for these adapters. A FreeBSD driver exists, but it uses a binary blob which causes panics. Highpoint
105has not been cooperative in documenting their hardware so that a proper driver can be written.
fc3986c4 106
9207d9f0 107* HP Pavilion dv7 laptops: as of 2012-07 it is impossible to run DragonFly on them due to broken ACPI interrupt routing in their firmware.
