First you need to identify the network card Once done you need to ask them if they have a Unix Driver. Follow the instructions to install it

How to remove Ubuntu from a Vista dual-boot config

On my new PC I wanted (still want) to have toa go with Linux. I chose to experiment with Ubuntu. I downloaded thedesktop CD, burned it, freed up some disk space (inside Vista) andloaded up Ubuntu from the CD. After some experimenting I figured outhow to install Ubuntu in the empty disk space and it all worked fine(GRUB took over my booting (recognized Vista automatically!) and Ubuntuloaded up fine).

Then I tried to install my GPU drivers andeverything went wrong.. For some reason Ubuntu wouldn't boot anymore(failed to load X-Server or something). I was completely lost andwanted to remove Ubuntu.

This is where things start to get really messy!

Ifyou simply remove the Ubuntu partition, GRUB (Linux boot loader) willstill be on your PC (in control). It will trip out, as the Ubuntupartition will be removed.. Bad thing!

So you need to restore your Master Boot Record (MBR) for Vista (so that Vista will handle the booting, not GRUB).

Googleonly pointed me to sites that explained how to REMOVE VISTA, whichisn't what I wanted. Many sites talked about the 'fixmbr' command, butthis is really only available in Windows XP.

So how do you restore your MBR for Windows Vista?

1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type Bootrec.exe /FixMbr, and then press ENTER.

That'sit. Now when you reboot your PC, Vista will load automatically... Youcan now safely boot using your Ubuntu desktop CD, to use the built inGnome Partition Manager to remove your Ubuntu partition!

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.

My Acer m5100 Vista won't boot =(


It may actually be a hard drive failure as the message indicates - either way you will need a Vista disc if you are re-installing or installing to a new hard drive.

Pre installed ubuntu linux software


It appears to be possible, but only for Vista, here is the link to the Acer driver page for this model.
you could try XP, but chances are that some or all of the drivers would not work.
the manufacturers of the individual components in your Acer may have drivers for XP, that would require some extensive searching to find them.
the actual installation of XP is a simple matter of inserting your XP disk, re-booting your computer and follow the screens till you get to the screen that allows you to re-format your hard drive; that will remove Ubuntu, then proceed with the installation.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS UNLESS YOU ARE SURE YOU HAVE THE NECESSARY DRIVERS!!! If you wish a search for the drivers, please write back.

I made a system recovery of Vista, then ran it and it worked, I installed Unix Ubuntu and decided I didn't like it. I went to re-install vista using my system recovery and it failed, do you know how I can...


Hi!

I understand that you had Vista installed on your computer, then installed Ubuntu, decided you didn't like it, and now want to reinstall Vista, but your system recovery disc does not work, correct?

From you description, I presume you did a full install of Ubuntu, which will require a full reinstallation of Vista to restore it. If you still have your original Vista install disc, load it into your CD-ROM drive and follow the prompts to reinstall Windows. If you can't find your install disc, or if you were never provided one, contact Microsoft's customer support and ask them how to get a new one. You can also ask them about getting new system recovery discs, which could also help revive your system.

No driver appearing in Vista


Sorry this is late but:

Unplug the monitor from the PC and then boot.
after you hear the windows starting sound wait for it to load everything up (say 1 min) and plug in the monitor

Windows then plays the "i have found an unknown device" sound and begins to search for drivers

Wait 5 min for it to do this and then shut down the computer with the power button.
Re boot

Monitor should work.

Note: you must be connected to the net for this to work.

And did you contact Acer? the gadgets can be updated at Acer.com, there are new versions of almost everything there. I think the Window wants you to register it again. I'm kinda PO'd because the Z issupposed to have Bluetooth but I can't get it to see a bluetooth device anywhere.
