SO, I need a BSD base for my project that detect the generic notebook device.
FreeBSD, at least, has a liveCD mode where you can boot it and see if it will run on your hardware.
There is also a livecd for OpenBSD 5.7 with security patches here.

I would also get the specifications for your laptop networking device (nic vs wireless?) and check the manual pages - you may be missing firmware.
