How do i run windows 7 and ubuntu side by side in VGN-NW240F?


Download ubuntu iso from www.ubuntu.com and burn to a cd or usb. You can choose either a 32-bit or 64-bit iso from the website and before choosing, check if your windows is 32 or 64-bit in "System" under "Control panel".
When you boot from the cd/ usb you will get to the install interface where you can choose to install ubuntu along windows. Then you can choose how big you want your ubuntu partition to be and that's it - the installer does the rest of the work. You can now choose between windows or ubuntu at every start up.

Reformat laptop with Linux


First you need to choose a linux distro, I suggest ubuntu since it is the easiest by far.

Steps for installing ubuntu -
1. go to http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download and follow the directions to burn a live cd
2. restart your computer with the live cd in the cd drive
3. you can choose to try ubuntu, test it out for a bit, and then install it from inside ubuntu, or you can install it directly from the menu you get when your computer boots up. When trying ubuntu, you can also mess around with the built in partition editor ( there is an option to format the whole drive when installing so you don't have to worry about formatting before installing)
4. Just follow the instructions and install, and then enjoy :)

Help im changing my tx2150ee from windows vista to windows 7... can anyone help me how to do it? im new at this


You have 2 ways to upgrade from vista to windows7: 1- instaling windows7 from vista (this need to insert setup dvd of windows7 while windows vista it's running and choose to upgrade to windows, but this you can do only if vista and win7 are both 32 bit or 64 bit, you can't upgrade from 32bit to 64 bit), but i don't recomand this way because all programs installed on vista will remain on hard drive as a folder and you lose some space on hard drive. 2- clean install of your copy of windows 7. For this before you start install widows save all your data from partition C to another partition. After that insert your windows7 setup dvd and restart your computer. When your laptop is starting you will see on screen "press any key to boot from cd", just hit any key to do this. if you can't see this message go to bios and change boot option to boot from cd/dvd. For this restart your laptop and hit F2 or DEL key while restarting depending of what chipset your laptop have (try both) and go to boot and there you have instruction of what key to use to change option at the botom of the screen. Now i give you step by step instructions to install windows7: -after boot you will see a window "Install windows", here you can choose language, time, and keyboard type then click next -in next window click on install now -in next window you have licence agreement, click i accept and then next -from next window choose custom install -then choose from the right side "drive option (advanced)" -choose disk0 partition2 (usually is second option, just watch partition dimension, if you have more of one partition) -then choose format -click ok in next window -then click next -now your install is started -after restart write user name and computer name and clik next -type a password if you need one or leave space empty if not and click next -write your windows7 serial and click next -choose first option for windows updates -choose your time -if your windows installed any network driver in next window choose were you use your laptop -thit's it now you have o fresh copy of windows7 Good luck!

I have installed ubuntu in drive C(66gb) with windows xp,giving 13 gb space to ubuntu and rest to xp .now i have deleted the disk partition for ubuntu of 13 gb .when i start computer it shows grub error-17...


when this happened to me on my Vista machine last year, I freaked out until I accidentally fixed it using by booting with my original Vista boot disc, and choosing 'Repair OS'. Try finding a/your original Windows XP install disc and seeing if it will repair and replace your own Windows boot sector. It would be best to find the one that came with your system, or another like it, but if all else fails, just try a hologrammed Windows XP install CD, but instead of 'install', choose 'repair'.

Ubuntu installation


Relax Sairam -- you don't have know all these answers.

First step, download Ubuntu and burn to a CD .

Second adjust your bios if necessary to change the boot preferences on your machine, so that it will try your CD/DVD device first before trying to boot from a hard disk.

Third, let the Ubuntu Live CD execute and bring up a desktop. On the desktop, there should be an icon to actually install Ubuntu. It will guide your through all the decisions that you need to make.

You may find it advantageous to have a "dual boot" configuration on your machine... i.e., having the choice of running some windows operating system, or ubuntu.

Fomratting to original OS


Lenovo doesn't provide restore CDs... and the S10 don't even have CD drive. Since you install XP in new partition, probably Vista is still there? Try using Vista DVD (I assume you are using external CD for S10). Boot with Vista DVD and choose the repair option if available. If not, you may need to go to Lenovo support to get the S10 restored to original state.

How do I reformat my computer, because it will not boot up for me to be able to erase the data on it?


Hi,
If you bought the netbook brand new then in the box you should have a Windows XP Home install disk.
Now because you have not got an optical drive (CD/DVD) in the computer you will need to get yourself an external CD/DVD drive and connect it up to the computer. Pop the disk in the drive and restart your computer. Hit F12 as the computer starts up and select the external drive as the first boot drive. Then you can proceed to re-format and reinstall the operating system.

If your computer has Linux as the operating system you should have a Ubuntu install disk in the box. If you don't you can download the disk free, you are just going to have to use another computer to download Ubuntu and burn it to a disk. Just follow the instruction to boot from the external CD/DVD drive to install it.

Hello,
You should install Ubuntu from inside Windows with the wubi program. When you boot you will have Windows as the default boot option and Ubuntu as a second option. Choose the Ubuntu installation to reside on the external drive. You will connect the drive if you use Ubuntu.

If you do not do that, reinstall ubuntu on the external drive and choose to write the boot sector for GRUB or LILO on the external drive, not on the MBR of the primary drive.
Hope it helps.

Ubuntu linux compatibility with vista


1.Repartition HD to fit Ubuntu
2. Install Ubuntu
3. Upon starting computer, select operating system (Vista or Ubuntu)
You could also use Wubi which is a program on the ubuntu 8.10 cd that allows you to install Ubuntu right from Vista and it will run just like it's an app per say. Just to warn you though, it will not run as fast and if you are installing this on a laptop it won't be able to hibernate. Also it doesn't require you to create a separate partition to install Ubuntu. This could potentially be a bad thing, depends on how you look at it.

Hope this helps!
