Try pressing F12 when you boot up your laptop this should give you a boot selection menu. If this doesn't work you can press F2 to get into the BIOS and either modify the boot device order, or you can also enable the F12 function so you can easily select between any boot device. To enable the the F12 function in the BIOS do the following:

  1. Power on the system. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press the F2 key, or the DEL key if you have a desktop, to enter the BIOS.
  2. Press the right arrow key to select Main.
  3. Use the arrow keys to navigate to F12 Boot Menu, and press ENTER.
  4. Select Enabled, and press ENTER.
  5. Press the F10 key to save changes and restart the system.

Restart your computer, press repetedly a key to enter BIOS, normally Del, go to Advanced BIOS Features probably and change to boot primarly from CD/DVD (1st Boot Device CD/DVD , or something like that), save and exit BIOS, and restart your computer with Linux Mint CD inside. Be aware that if you make wrong changes in BIOS, you could damage your computer.

I have a Gateway MX6438 laptop. It had Windows XP Home Edition. I choose to do a recovery hoping to have it as it came from manufacture. After recovery was finished I'm getting the "BOOTMGR missing"...


I would get Linux Mint on a DVD and boot from that. That will allow you to get at the windows partition and correct errors. I think the missing files may be zero in length. There are several Linux rescue disks that will also work for you. By the way Linux is free.

Toshiba satellite M45-S169 won't boot ubuntu from DVD


Your really pushing the lower minimum requirement limits if you're trying to use Ubuntu 11 or Ubuntu 12. Especially with your on-board graphics chip which borrows system ram.

Try Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (Lucid Lynx) instead.

Go Here and download the 1st link on the list under Desktop CD:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/

OR...

Here is a direct link to the ISO file you need to download and then burn to a CD:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ubuntu-10.04.4-desktop-i386.iso

If you don't have Software for burning iso's to CD's then download and install this totally FREE CD Burning program:
http://download.imgburn.com/SetupImgBurn_2.5.7.0.exe

Laptop wont boot. comes up with error mesage. press f2 and it asks for phoenixbios code


You have some problem with hard drive unit. You can try to start live linux CD (Mint) and you can see if it can see your hard drive. You will need replacement if don't. But, maybe some virus is just delete or destroy all data on it. If you can see your drive with linux, try to save your important data to some memory stick.
Good luck!

I'd like to install a version of Linux on my laptop. I am a beginner; what ill fit me and how to install it?


For a beginner the best version of Linux for a laptop remains UBUNTU. But you can count on LINUX MINT and the latest version of it is called JULIA.
You can find UBUNTU here. And LINUX MINT here.
The BOTH can be installed via installation DVD and for both also you can TRY BEFORE INSTALL, meaning you can run the version of LINUX LIVE, taste and test it before you will install it on your hard drive.
