I am able to load Niresh Maverick using the bootable DVD (burned from the ISO)

I have a few issues that I am having a hard time figuring out.


  1. It seems that I still need to have the DVD in the drive in order to boot into the hard drive. so the first question is, did I miss a step to where I was supposed to boot to the Niresh screen? I followed the instructions located here twice.
  2. whether I start up normally or with the -v or -x option, i still can not detect the internal wifi card.
  3. I cant seem to hear any Audio ktext
  4. The trackpad on the Lenovo gets detected by the OS and I can move the mouse but the tap to click doesnt work. I checked the system preferences and played around with the mouse settings but nothing works.

Would anyone be able to assist me?
