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.

Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

Coffee w/sugar spilled on laptop


Its hard to tell what damage has been done without seeing inside your laptop. But the fault you describe indicates that your hard drive has failed or there's a bad connection.

Hardrives are normally fairly easy to access on a laptop. See if you can take it out, if there's gunge on it give it a clean, and the connector inside and put it back in and give it a go.

Oh......... remove all power sources first.

If that fails, I would recommend taking it to a repair shop. Or you could buy a replacement and install it. But you would have to re-install and operating system as well.

Everex nc1500 laptop boots to system utilities and resets


your hard drive is corrupted. I have the same laptop that you have. There is a small partician for the utilities and the other big one for the windows.. the unit will not boot to the windows because that partician is corrupted and so it looks for the next bootable partition... the utility one. See if you can boot from your CD using an antivirus disc or system disc.. (you might have to change cmos to boot from it before the hard drive for this to work). If you can get it up, you might be able to repair the windows partition.
NOTE.. Since your utility partition works it seems, your drive sounds like it might be OK. If you can not get into your utility partition, your drive may have died.. (This is usually caused by dropping the laptop from more than 12 inches while it is running) like setting down hard on a desk for example (what I did to destroy my hardd drive).
Hope that helps, and that your drive is OK.
Thanks!

New operating system


When starting the computer, you need to enter the boot menu or set the machine to boot from the CD drive before the hard drive in the bios or utilities set up. Once you've done this, be sure the disc is in the drive upon start up. Then follow the directions.Keep in mind that the XP disc may not have all of the drivers or your machine, so you will have to go to Everex's support site and download them. You can see which drivers you may need in the device manager. Also, when updating XP, only install service pack 2, do not install three, it has issues and is really not needed.
