Use the Windows installer for dual boot. Easy! Or test as Live CD (no-install)

A full install may require partition and Linux disk / file format. Along with setup files destinations options. This a full commit install.

SOURCE: Cant install recovery disks after a hard drive reformat!

the recovery disk is designed to repair or restore a system to its previous factory condition and is not a full installation. the formating of your hdd would have erased all the data required for this process to be completed. you can try a recovery utility that may be able to help you at this link. the disk might not have been saved in an .iso format to tell the computer to run it before starting an OS. if this disk is recognized and runs on your system then you will need to attempt a recovery, which is unlikely since the drive has allready been formated many necessary system files may not be able to be restored. at this point a complete new install will be necessary.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: i tried run live ubuntu distro on my laptop compaq

Well, Linux used to pride itself for being able to run on almost any machine. Ubuntu has become bloated over the years, but more user friendly. You may want to try an older distro like Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long Term Support): http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04/ You will want the PC (Intel x86) desktop CD version ubuntu-8.04.4-desktop-i386.iso

Or Xubuntu: http://www.xubuntu.org/getubuntu

Or Lubuntu: http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=lubuntu

Looks like your computer will support up to 2G of memory. PC 2700 DDR (SODIMM) Get a free scan form Crucial to see what memory use can use: http://www.crucial.com/

Post back to this thread if you need help installing the memory, it's easy to do.

I cannot get Ubuntu to load onto my Vaio PCV-RZ10. I have already partitioned the HDD with 30 Gig, loaded the OS (Ubuntu) I get a (Not Support) error message. Any ideas?


The problem is your computer is not compatable to run the Ubuntu operational system, it comes up not supported. But you can go online to forums that deal with these types of problems, because there are a lot of people out there that swear by this system.

HD booting in one PC but not in another


Ubuntu works with RAM and CPU Memory instead of a pc like xp that uses Virtual RAM. If the pc that could not load ubuntu doesn't have enough ram to support the reading of the Hard drive and the Operating System then it won't work and Xp will only run on the computer that xp was installed onto the hard drive.

Installing ubuntu on Raid 0


Ok I have Duo booted ubuntu a couple of times now. When you were partitioning did you use the automatic or he manual? Since you have two hard disks, I will assume you use a desktop and you know how to take it apart. So, if you did automatics the bestt I can tell you is to swith your hard drives around physically and if that fails try switching g the boot menu order. If you used manual partitioning then when you were creating the ext3 partition you did not type / in the text box labeled Moint Point (that's the best I can help you) I hope this has fixed your problem. GO UBUNTU

Disk drive wont read Ubuntu disk


Make sure you are booting from CD-ROM and not the hard drive, If that doesn't help get out your windows CD...run it until right after it formats your hard drive then stop your computer and boot with the Ubuntu disc...
You will love Ubuntu...it clean not bloated, straight forward, plenty of free help and software, everything you want is available -free and works better.
...good luck (there is a learning curve, but not bad) please leave rating

Modems & drivers


Why not put the drivers on a disk as a backup. Then you will have them if you ever need them in the future. You can then install the drivers in your notebook.

HP Compaq nx9030 PC Notebook Problem:


If this is a pcmacia wireless card you need to run and install its driver from the disk that came with it ..and after that will see it and will work ..The card is not a standard in this model with windows xp ...and the driver for it is needed..
Also check the port to be installed ...go to device manager and take a look to see if you can see them in there ..and if they have a yellow mark .run the driver again ..
if YOU DO NOT HAVE THE DRIVER ..LOOK FOR IT ON THE CARD MANUFACTURER'S SITE ..
I think what you wrote here is the router ..and the exact model is novatel ...If you need the driver I need the exact model of the card ..
