I didn't have to change anything at all I used the latest loader and installed it and it just worked. I have not had any problems whatsoever, even after improper shutdown due to low battery etc. It is a pretty old laptop though with a single core CPU. I am mainly using it as a Torrent downloader and NAS with Sickrage installed on docker. Haven't run into any performance issues, everything works beautifully.
On another note I would highly recommend running Sickrage or any other applications on docker. It makes the task of moving your existing setup to a new machine pretty seamless in case of a system failure.
