Hi
Use the disk management utility in Windows or one better would be Partition Magic 8 (it is older and maybe you can find it on a torrent site or something) use half the disk for Windows and leave the other half open for Linux. With Linux you will need 2 partitions. The first will be for the OS and the second is a swap partition, usually twice the size of your physical RAM. 
Install Windows first, as you will need to use the boot manager from Linux to select the OS. Then install Linux. Make sure you select the main partition to install the boot manager on.There is either GRUB or LILO. LILO is the older one, and it fairly straight forward but GRUB is better.

I would recommend the UBUNTU distribution of Linux. It is based on I believe either Debian or SUSE but there is very good driver support included and it is very user friendly.
You can email them from their web page and they will even mail you the discs free of charge.

    It is possible that there is driver support for the camera for Ubuntu. The camera is almost guaranteed to work with XP as most hardware is made to support Windows. You could install both operating systems and have a dual boot machine. There are a lot of people that do that. I personally have a PC running XP and OS X86 10.5.5. You just have to have 2 partitions available and make sure you install Windows first.

    Hope this helps.

Yes you can change to any operating systems at any time. You can change to linux's earlier versions or later versions, or you can change to windows wp/vista/me/98/95. When you buy a computer it comes with an operating system, However you can change it to whichever operating system you want. all you will need to do is purchase whatever operating system you want, it will come with installation disks, pop one in restart your computer and it will walk you threw installing it. ( I have done this with XP & Vista, I am assuming Linux is the same.)

If you have installed a drive from another system, it probably has settings applicable to the system from which it was removed. The original system could well have had settings for a different audio chip and video resolution. You need to look at the device drivers for audio and video and make the changes needed so they apply to the laptop you have.

Where to find ZX-I945LM4 (zx technology) motherboard drivers download free


Hi sabujdit

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about the Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

The drivers available for the Intel D850MV Motherboard are available for free download from here:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=%22Intel+D850MV+Motherboard%22

The drivers for the ZX-1945LM4 Motherboard are available for fres download from here:

http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/intel+mother+board+driver+zx+i945lm4+audio+driver/


Please note that these motherboards appear to support only Win98/Win Me/Win 2000/Win NT/Win XP and possibly also some Linux Distros (Operating Systems). If your Operating System is not included in this list, then it is highly probable that no VGA Drivers exist for that Operating System. If you are committed to both this Motherboard and an unsupported Operating System, then consider buying and installing LAN/NIC, Sound and Graphics Cards that are pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System. All can be relatively inexpensive.

The term "Drivers" is meaningless without associating it with an Operating System and a specific item of Hardware. There is no such thing as just " Drivers". There are XP VGA Drivers, Vista Graphics Drivers, Windows 7 LAN Drivers, Mac OSX Tiger WLAN Drivers, Mac OSXLeopard Epson Sx100PrinterDrivers, Maces Lion Webcam Drivers, Linux Red Hat MIDI Controller Drivers and Linux Ubuntu Media Player Drivers, etc.

Although drivers seem to mainly be about hardware, they are actually primarily about software. The Driver does not physically control the Motherboard's Devices. The Operating System and (to a lesser extent) the BIOS do that. What the Driver does (just like a human interpreter for a guest who speaks a different language from his host), is to introduce the Device to the Operating System and help them to communicate with each other, with the Driver taking instructions from both and passing it back and forth between them. So when one mentions Drivers, one must also mention the Operating System it will be talking to. In order for that to be possible, the two must share a common language. If they do not, then the role of 'interpreter' is impossible, because, then neither the Driver nor the Device will be able to understand what the Operating System is saying and vice versa.

I hope this helps.

Hi drivers problem


Hi hari2tell2

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. You also don't say if you are using the on-board devices or separate, dedicated, internal or external Devices. Please include information about the type, model and specification of your computer, its Devices and its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

This is probably a BIOS Settings or Driver or Device Settings problem. Try 2 things first:
Make sure all the relevant Device functions in BIOS are 'Enabled' and then save those new BIOS Settings.

To enter BIOS Setup, Press 'F2' or 'Del' during the first POST Screen at Start Up.

Check the status of the Devices and their Drivers in Device Manager.

Start > (My) Computer > (System Properties) View System Settings > Device Manager

This will tell you if the Devices are installed and functioning properly and if their Drivers are installed properly. If a red 'x' or a yellow question or exclamation mark appears next to a Device, then there is probably a settings anomaly, fault, error or conflict with that Device and/or its Driver.

Re-install the correct Drivers that relate to BOTH the device and your Operating System, then restart the computer. Install the Drivers either from the motherboard's Drivers and utilities CD or from here:

http://www.mercury-pc.com/downloads_list.php?productid=644

Please note that this motherboard appears to support only Win 2000/Win XP/Win 2003 Server and possibly also some Linux Distros (Operating Systems). If your Operating System is not included in this list, then it is highly probable that no Drivers exist for that Operating System.

If you are committed to both this Motherboard and an unsupported Operating System, then consider buying and installing either a basic 5.1 or 7.1, internal PCI Sound Card or an external USB Sound Card, an AGP Graphics Card, a PCI LAN/Ethernet/NIC Card, a PCI Wireless Network adapter Card that are all pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System. All can be relatively inexpensive. See examples below.

I am a Kodak express dealer. I have a photo kiosk with a CPU with a RED colour motherboard I assume it is to be MSI motherboard. Not much information i can get from the Motherboard as there is no...


My advice is not to worry..and even try what I say ...take one unit ..and install any other Intel based motherboard...and run the disk they gave you ...after that install the drivers for that motherboard separately ..special the video one ..being a photo unit..and the issue is ..that no mater what kinda operating system they may use on that disk ..it will work in almost all motherboard that is Intel chipped and the program will run in the operating system on the disk ...If you change the motherboard ..the only different thing will be the drivers...cause the devices like video card ..or LAN card may be different ..so ..let them think they fulled you ..and install any motherboard with Intel chip ..that fits in the space ..and run the disk ..and after that run the motherboards own drivers disk to complete the installation ..but ..if it is a windows that runs..the drivers will almost all be installed by itself......so ..it is not the motherboard that mater ..but the operating system and the software from that disk that makes the machine work ..so ...I advice you even better ...Get to a smart guy with that disk . and isolate the software from the operating system ..and after that make your own recovery disk with whatever motherboard you afford ...
I only suggested Intel based motherboards cause of the unknown operating system ..but by elimination I dont think is MAC ..it is either a windows or a LInux...

I want to install RHEL3.0 in SATA DeskStart HD using MSI SATA MB, but not detecting at OS installation time. HOW i can detect, Pls help me!!!!


You need to create a space for which to install Linux. That likely means resizing Windows. Partition Magic is a good Windows utility to accomplish this, although there is a Linux version called Gaprtedthat will do essentially the same thing. You download the Gparted live cd, burn to disk, and run it from your computer. You must go into "setup" and set your Bios to boot from CDROM before booting the Hard Drive. Once booted, follow the on screen instructions. Resize Windows, (but NOT before a thorough defrag of your Windows drive), and create a "blank space" for Linux. Afterward, boot your Linux distro, (RedHat 9 was a great distro, but a newer version of a Red Hat based distro would serve you better, sayCentOS or Fedora Core), and follow the online instructions. Good Luck!
