When you install Linux it will offer to create the required partitions during the install. You just have to select a size (I use 10 Gb for my installs). Select "at end of free space". It will also load the Boot Loader so that you can dual boot either system.

What is the error code for Vista Help?

    As Linux is an operating system itself, you cannot run it under Windows (there may be some virtual machines that can run it though).



    The only other solution (available mainly on magazine disks such as PC Authority, etc) is to run it from the CD/DVD.



    Note: Most Install CD/DVD's will only install the Operating system on a partition, so keep your eyes open for a computer magazine that has a Distro of Linux on their CD/DVD for you to try.



    Good luck.

Is it Possible to Have 2 operating Systems on One Hard Drive? And Be able To Choose Which one to use at the Boot Screen? I Would like to install Ubuntu Linux without Erasing Windows Vista...


yes
you have to partition your hard drive and put win on one partition and linux on the other partition
then when it boots up yo set your bios to ask which os you want and go enter on it and it will boot that os for you or i think that you can put an icon on desktop and double click on that to open the os system
talk with a computer geek to see how it is done

The "black" edition is a BOOTLEG copy of the copyrighted Microsoft Vista operating system, and it contains some computer-viruses.

So, NOBODY can help you get the viruses out of the "black" edition.

How can i install Linux OS on my laptop? please help


do you want to have Linux while you are also having Windows? Then is will be a dual boot. To do this, have another partition of your hard disk empty. Like C (windows) and Drive E(free partition).
Download the latest version of ubuntu linux and use the bootable cd to install ubuntu on the other partition

Dual Boot problem in Windows XP & VISTA


Don't try to edit the xp boot.ini or the vista bootloader. It only leads to other problems and headaches.
Try this first: Take note as to which drive has vista on it, put your vista installation cd in the drive and let it boot to the "installation window", then choose "repair", then "startup repair." Make sure you choose the drive that already has vista on it. Let that run and when it re-boots you should then be given a choice to boot to vista or "other windows".
There is also a (free) program called EasyBCD. Download that, read the directions and have at it.
If none of that works, you'll have to do a clean install. Install XP on one drive first, then Vista on the second drive in that order. The Vista bootloader will pick up the XP. However, XP is NOT forward compatible and will not recognize the Vista bootloader. Make sure that you don't have any flashdrives or media cards plugged in before doing the install.
Another approach would be to shrink the Vista volume, creat a new partition, then install Linux Ubuntu that partition. Linux will detect all of the OS's and create a boot menu. Unfortunately, you'll lose about 5 gigs to the Linux OS and it's swap partition, but then, you get to goof around with Linux :-)

It is a pretty simple process

Create 3 partitions on the HDD (Vista requires 20 GB minimum)

Install XP on 1st, Vista on 2nd, Linux on 3rd

You'll choose the partition to install on during the install process of each OS, you can create the partitions during the XP install

Dual Booting


possibly by first creating a new partition large enough for Linux OS, but does not solve your problem...try getting a VISTA startup disc from another pc (floppies if you have the drive) and startup from these.
