I bought a Samsung R518 (NP-R518-DA04) laptop.
Hardware spec.

I tried to run it A2 (from bootable CD), but without success. I'll try to investigate it further soon.

Usage of USB flash drive gives the same result. And, actually, R518's keyboard lacks of Scroll Lock key Shocked

This is not a problem!
Press and hold Ctrl (or Shift, or Alt) - this will give a same result Wink

OBL.Asm:
Code:
mov al, [417h] ; shift status byte in BIOS low address 0040h:0017h
; 7 Insert locked
; 6 Caps Lock locked
; 5 Num Lock locked
; 4 Scroll Lock locked
; 3 Alt key is pressed
; 2 Ctrl key is pressed
; 1 Left Shift is pressed
; 0 Right Shift is pressed
pop ds
test al, [flag] ; this mask for testing if any bit is set in the
; shift status byte is normally [b]1fh = 11111b[/b]
jnz short ee0 ; if any is set, edit

and where about it is written in the wiki? (My "English" does not allow me to write about it:)))

here: http://www.ocp.inf.ethz.ch/wiki/Documentation/Installation#toc8
scroll down to 2a. where you can read:

Press ScrollLock or hold down Ctrl, Alt or Shift key, either at the left or at the right of the keyboard, shortly after a cold or warm start before the MBR is executed. Applies only in the case of an installed Bluebottle boot manager.

Trace output to screen shows the amount of memory 2012MB, but probably it's wrong because integrated videocard shares up to 512MB with main installed memory that totally 2GB.
So, setting ExtMemSize=1500 works, and A2 boots on R518  Roll Eyes
