The operating system that I used in my computer is XP.How would I install ubuntu operating system on my laptop?


the Ubuntu ISO that you choose for you pc needs to be selected (x86 for normal 32 bit pc or x64 for 64bit devices ) download the ISO and burn to cd or DVD your choice. when you running XP insert the disk and it gives you a option to install aside xp or to partition the drive to add ubuntu separately or to do a clean install ( wiping everything ) or boot up with it and it will help partition the XP drive to install alongside xp to do a dual boot.. this can be easy or hard id get a tutorial on this. but the clean install is the easiest and best it wipes out the drive and I'm almost sure everything will work when it comes on look up the model laptop and ubuntu 11.04(newest ) all my devices work all the time and the software is awesome as well as free and virus free
good luck google installing ubuntu for noobs

Hi there, I have just installed 7.10 and I would like to upgrade to the Ubuntu latest version... How can I do that? Can I dowload it or should I order the install CD? Many thanx,*


11.04 is the most stable and current version. You can upgrade from 7 to it with a thumb drive, and an installed program.

Go to the Ubuntu Website and download 11.04 iso.

Download and install UNetBootin.
Insert your thumbdrive, format it.
Open UNetBootin.
Select "Disk Image" then locate the location of the 11.04 iso you downloaded.
Then at the bottom, select your thumbdrive, and click OK

This will then get your thumbdrive bootable, and install 11.04 too it.

Once that's done. Shut down your computer, boot from the thumbdrive, and follow the upgrade instructions.

Best part, about "Upgrade". It'll 99% of the time keep your documents intact and just update the software.

Everytime i open the computer it reads the feature you are trying to use is on a cd rom or removable disk insert the aiosotwarenpidisk


"AIOsoftwareNPI" is included on the CD that came with your HP All In One printer. Place the HP All In One disk into the optical drive (CD / DVD ROM drive) and restart the computer. "AIOsoftwareNPI" will automatically be installed after boot.

If unable to locate the ****, go to HP's website to download the disk for your particular All In One printer.

I hope this helps. Please rate my reply - thanks!

I just let my credit card information in a few minutes ago.i have a blank hard disk and am rying to install Ubuntu.iso on a hard disk using an emergency disk fom Windows to boot up the system with cd...


If you have the 'ubunto.iso' file, you need CD/DVD-writing software to read that ISO file, and to burn that image onto a blank writable disk.

Then, restart your computer, and change the "boot-order" so that the CD/DVD device is the _FIRST_ boot-device. Then, Ubuntu will boot-up, and you can "install" Ubuntu onto your disk-drive.

How can I uninstall Ubuntu from Dual Boot. I have a dual boot of Windows Vista Ultimate with Ubuntu 9.04 The specs of my computer is 2gb ram, 500 gb HDD and dual core processor 2.66ghz (E5300). I installed...


How to remove Ubuntu from a Vista dual-boot config

On my new PC I wanted (still want) to have toa go with Linux. I chose to experiment with Ubuntu. I downloaded thedesktop CD, burned it, freed up some disk space (inside Vista) andloaded up Ubuntu from the CD. After some experimenting I figured outhow to install Ubuntu in the empty disk space and it all worked fine(GRUB took over my booting (recognized Vista automatically!) and Ubuntuloaded up fine).

Then I tried to install my GPU drivers andeverything went wrong.. For some reason Ubuntu wouldn't boot anymore(failed to load X-Server or something). I was completely lost andwanted to remove Ubuntu.

This is where things start to get really messy!

Ifyou simply remove the Ubuntu partition, GRUB (Linux boot loader) willstill be on your PC (in control). It will trip out, as the Ubuntupartition will be removed.. Bad thing!

So you need to restore your Master Boot Record (MBR) for Vista (so that Vista will handle the booting, not GRUB).

Googleonly pointed me to sites that explained how to REMOVE VISTA, whichisn't what I wanted. Many sites talked about the 'fixmbr' command, butthis is really only available in Windows XP.

So how do you restore your MBR for Windows Vista?

1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type Bootrec.exe /FixMbr, and then press ENTER.

That'sit. Now when you reboot your PC, Vista will load automatically... Youcan now safely boot using your Ubuntu desktop CD, to use the built inGnome Partition Manager to remove your Ubuntu partition!

Ubuntu 8.10 install


Just insert the CD in your hard drive and wait for the splash screen, but if it does not appear, open up explorer and go to your CD drive folder and find autorun. Doubleclick on that so the splash screen appears. It has the choices and options for installation. Another way is to go to your BIOS and make your PC boot to your CD drive, then insert CD in drive and restart. It will come up with the Ubuntu live installation.
