apparently not. I bought a cheap gateway with a q6600 intel quad core processor just to see if it would really work and it doesnt. I entered the BIOS and changed the boot directory to EFIX like the instructions say then saved and exited and restarted and it still just boots to winblows. oh well, it was worth a shot. I might pick up a cheap gigabyte mobo from newegg and see if I can do a little surgery.
