I think that the disc does not have sata drivers and therefore it will not detect your hard drive, check if your HDD is connected via IDE or sata and let me know mate...

Installing Ubuntu Server on Dell Dimension 2400?


Step 1:
The Ubuntu Linux operating system is available either with or without a desktop environment. The version with the desktop environment is meant for personal use and includes word processing, email and graphic editing software. The version without the desktop environment is called "Ubuntu Server." The server version does not come with any graphical software or productivity software. There are three different desktop environments available for the Ubuntu operating system. The default is the Gnome desktop. The other two are the KDE and the XFCE desktop environments.

Log into the server. Type the command "sudo apt-get update" to update the list of software packages available. Type the command "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" to install the Gnome desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop" to install the XFCE desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" to install the KDE desktop. Type the command "sudo reboot" to reboot the server. Ubuntu Linux Tutorials,Howtos,Tips & News http://www.ubuntugeek.com/install-gui-in-ubuntu-server.html

How to detect and test a printer or any other device


Ubuntu live CD (that we can get free or make copy) detects a lot of drivers. For example hp laserjet p2015 so you can print you document on ubuntu form your hard drive if your printer can't work with vista. The amizing thing is that you don't have to install ubuntu, just boot from the CD/DVD and when you finish shut down the computer and remove the CD witout any effects on your current operating system

No operating system found


it mean your operating system is corrupted or your hard disk is not detected with machine

for operating system re install your operating system and if you face any trouble to installing operating system like hard disk not found or no drive.

so go to setup and check that if there showing any hard drive.
absoultly not so plug your data cable and power cable properly on your hard disk and re check now if problem is not solve yet. so now pull out your hard disk from pc and plug the both wire of power and data and now check that your hard disk is running making some noise you can feel that its running if not so replace your hard disk card and now plug it on pc it will running now and install your operating system . you can operate your pc with your old data. thanks

Attempted system recovery on HP a1540n. Only option allowed was to format hard drive. Computer now stops at splash screen. Boy, I need help. Thank You, Gordon


By formatting your hard drive, you've wiped all the data.

You now need to re-install an operating system.

If you have a Windows installation disk, just put it in your CD/DVD drive and re-boot, follow instructions.

If you don't have an windows installation disk, its a case of buying one, make sure you also get the COA Code of authority, 5 groups of 5 letters and numbers.

If you don't want to pay for a system disk, Download and burn a copy of one of the Free Linux operating systems. Ubuntu is my favourite. Just log onto :- http://www.ubuntu.com/ and follow your nose.

Again, when you have a disk, put it in the drive and reboot.

Right, i just installed ubuntu, then overwrite my vista drive, i have a vista disk but i don't know how to overwrite the linux bootloader with vista. last time i tried this if failed.


To re-install Windows Vista please do the following:
Put the disc in and restart the computer
Boot from the disc
Do a full system install
Delete your partition [contains Ubuntu(Linux)]
and install.

I recently did this last week, went from Ubuntu back to windows 7, and currently I duel-boot both Operating Systems. I hope this helps!
Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

I have been given a acer veriton 5100 it has a program called ubuntu it does not have windows program and will not auto run disks that i insert can you give advise


"Ubuntu" is a Linux operating system, not a Windows operating system. It will not run any windows programs or autoplay any windows CD's unless you have an "emulator" or hypervisor installed, which is not by default. Here is a link to the Ubuntu website that you can browse to find out more information on that Operating System - http://www.ubuntu.org  There you can research the running of a Windows emulator called "WINE" (much to detailed to get into here). Or you can purchase a 3rd party hypervisor, such as VMware Workstation, that will run a virtualized copy of a Windows operating system (such as XP) inside Ubuntu.
Long story short - you cannot use your Windows disks in this laptop with Ubuntu operating system installed without a add-on emulator or program.
Good luck!

Ntldr is missing


seems your MBR is damage. but you can repair it if only you can boot in windows cd and entering in the recovery console.

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.    Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.    If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4.    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.    At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.

FIXMBR  C:
FIXBOOT  C:
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTLDR  C:\
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTDETECT.COM  C:\
BOOTCFG  /rebuild


6.    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

no warranty...you use on your own risk :)
