Question about MSI Wind UmNotebook

Msi wind u90 mother board operating system

I have replaced linux suse with windows xp. I would now like to install osx86 on a partition. I think that is the best for me to do. What are the steps to do this?I have 120 gig hard drive and 512 memory of ram for now but I think I will wait until the warranty is up to install more ram because doing it before voids the warranty. I have 2 ram.

Firstly, allow me to appologise for the long delay. I moved at the beginning of the month and I have been busy with that, and my desktop computer is on the fritz so I have not been online much.

Adding more RAM does not void the warranty. I don't know who told you that but they are misinformed. Installing DIMMs on a notebook requires little more than opening a small compartment on the bottom. It doesn't interfere with the inner workings at all. That is what voids the warranty. Go ahead and upgrade.

The problem you are facing with installing OS X86 on a partition of a Windows drive is that OS X doesn't like that at all. It is recommended to install it on a dedicated drive. It can kill the partition table VERY easily and then it will be reload time. What you CAN do tho is to install it on a USB external drive and use the systems boot menu to choose the drive you want to boot to.
I installed Tiger for X86 once on a partition that had an NTFS partition on it, and it was a real pain, and one time I had to do a repair or something on the HPFS partition and it killed the partition table and I lost a TON of stuff on both the HPFS partition and the NTFS partition. It took days of recovery to get back a small portion of the lost data, and some I never got back. Leopard doesn't like sharing at all on a drive with an NTFS partition. You need to install it on a dedicated drive really.

The other option is to install it in VM Ware but it is a pain and doesn't always work. Do some research on some of the Hackintosh sites. Google OS X86 HCL and you can find a ton of info on there.

Cheers

Webcam on using msi wind u90 notebook


It sounds like you need to reinstall the software driver for your webcam to match your new OS version. Try going to the manufacturer's website Support section to see if they have driver downloads. If not call them up. If you provide the model of your laptop I'll help look it up.

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

Wanted better operating system then linux suse on my msi u90!!


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.)

I have installed Ubuntu 7.10 and windows xp. So far didn't face this kind of problem. So don't think the problem is with the mother board.

About Linux fedora and XP


Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora.
If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
