Update: as of 2018, I still use the notebook with November 2017 version of Slackware-current with no problems. Note that closed source fglrx driver is no longer being developed and is incompatible with newer kernels. On the other hand, open source drivers have matured and perform very well.
 Boots in EFI mode with ELILO. With Syslinux, it boots but hangs when X starts (I even flashed EFI/BIOS to newer version). So, in case of weird issues, it may be worth trying CSM (legacy) mode. Update and correction: the issue is not related to boot loader, but anyway appears to have been fixed by updating to fglrx 15.12. Boots in EFI mode with ELILO.
