I want to Install Linux Mint on ThinkCentre M55p Series Type 8811


If it Has Windows 8 or 8.1 you might need a new Hard Drive to do this. Windows 8 and 8.1 are encrypted so you can't use Linux of any type. If it has Windows XP try Linux Mint 13 "Maya", the replacement for win xp, If Windows 7 64 bit: Try Linux Mint 17.1 *Rebecca"

I cannot get into my screen without turning my computer off and back on and hitting F1.Then I get to BIOS screen and then back to desktop. I still cannot go to the internet? Any suggestions?


if you have vista... it sounds like you do. upgrade to 7 (or better yet down grade to xp)
if not it sounds like a bad hard drive and you are not getting the boot sector to fire up.

download a linux distro FREE (i recommend Fedora 12) and put it on a usb stick called live install.
see if you can boot off the stick without fail.

ps you will love linux so much better than win.

Try this: Restart the computer. When it starts to come up you will most likely see a screen that tells you how to get to the Bios setup. Go there and see if there is a way to change the boot order to boot from the drive that has Windows on it.

Ntldr missing from Active drive.


Hello,

You have not mentioned the Operating system you are using. I am giving you a solution assuming that you are using Win XP.

There are two ways to fix this issue.
1. You need to extract this file from the CD and than copy into the root directory.
2. You can run a repair of the Win XP using the disk.

The second option is the better and the easy one. I have provided the link below where you have step by step instructions for the same with screen shots.

How to Repair Win XP

Hope this helps.

Regards
Sammy
