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.

Bought used need to by pass password


You didn't say what OS you are using.

1.To try and remove the password protection you can power off the PC.
remove the side panel and then remove the battery. Leave it for 10 minutes, refit the battery and then power up the PC. The password protection may have been removed.

2. Or at start up, enter the bios settings. You may be able to disable the password from within the settings.

3. If you're not bothered which OS you use, try a new install of XP or Windows 7.

If you don't have XP or Windows 7, ask a friend to download linux and burn it onto a dvd for you(or put it onto a usb flash drive). Put the linux dvd into your dvd drive and restart the computer. You will have the choice of completely erasing Windows, or installing Linux alongside Windows.

Linux is free. It will do everything Windows can do. Linux comes with its own version of 'Office'. The best free versions of Linux are Ubuntu or 'Mint'.

You can download Ubuntu here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Webcams do NOT work in Linux. Apart from that, Linux will do everything Windows can do (but free!) and you won't ever get a virus.

How can I install Linux on an old Macintosh iBook? Perhaps DSL??(damn small linux)


DSL does not contain all of the drivers needed for the computer to work well. Try Gentoo linux, or Arch linux.

Ok I have a Gateway Laptop model NV73A06u and it is not powering on. The computer is no booting up correctly. I tries to start and then fails. The computer tries to fix itself for a long time and nothing...


Have you tried a Live CD?

Since you have a newer model, you can try the latest Ubuntu release located here.

Download the .iso file.

http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

Burn the .iso file to a CD or DVD.

For burning .iso files to media, I like ImgBurn for Windows ( http://www.softpedia.com/dyn-postdownload.php?p=27810&t=4&i=1 ) and plain K3B for Linux.

Once the disk is burned, pop it in and make your machine boot from the Optical Drive (CD/DVD Drive).

Hit enter a few times once you are asked about the preferred language and to try Ubuntu without changes to your computer.

From there it should either boot up okay (maybe without sound because sound is iffy in Linux) or it will continue to be all kinds of badness.

The thing is at this point you should be able to tell if it is most likely hardware or software. If Linux boots up off of your disk, your Windows installation is hosed (not so bad, possibly cheap to fix). If you can't even boot into a Linux live environment, then the fix may involve money and a fair amount of screwdriver action.

My model is gigabyte g41m-combo motherboard i want linux os which linux os is best support tell me about kernel verstion ?


Hi,
Its your good decision to try linux.
I would like to suggest you to try Ubuntu linux as this supports most of the hardwares.

Download latest ubuntu for the below link
http://se.releases.ubuntu.com/10.10/ubuntu-10.10-rc-desktop-i386.iso
After downloading, write the ISO image to a cd which will be a bootable cd.

place the disc in your drive, restrt you machine.
Boot your pc from this ubuntu cd.

you will get the live ubuntu (no need to install) or even you can install if you want.

Kernel is common for all the linux and it s core operating system file.

I hope this is useful to you
please rate the solution provided.
thanks

How to install linux on compaq presario cq40-144tu


hrm... i'll just assume that this is the first time you've attempted anything with linux? There are vairous Linux distributions, with the Ubuntu flavour seeming to be the best one for the windows to linux switcher (IMO). I would try a live Ubuntu disc first to make sure it's what you're after, which can be downloaded here
http://releases.ubuntu.com/intrepid/ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso

or if you're ready to dive straight in, here is the full version that you burn to a cd and then install

You may have a conflict with the hardware. I have had installations fail because of this. You may want to use the Ubuntu live CD to boot into Ubuntu. If this works out for you, you should be able to install.

If you cannot boot into Ubuntu using the live CD, try booting into the CD using some special boot prompts. See this How To:
