I have Windows Professional installed on the 1st hard drive with the NTFS file system.
I've just installed UBUNTU 11.10 on a second hard drive but didn't setup the dual boot during installation because I was confused that I might by accident, install on the wrong drive. So before the installation of UBUNTU, I dis-connected the 1st hard drive with WindowsXP from the power supply just to be safe.
Hi guys, i have at the moment a dual boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04 each one in separate hard drives, when i installed Ubuntu it taked care of the dual boot system letting me choose wich OS to run when turned on.
hello - i have 2 hard drives on my pc and i want to keep my existing xp on the first drive and have f11 on the second. should i install from the live cd or the dvd? how do i setup this dual boot system? thank you very much
Pardon question redundancy. I read similar, but unanswered questions involving what I'd like to do.
I have an ancient Dell desktop running XP to which I've added a second hard drive. Both drives are only 40GB each, so there is little room to crowd two OS on one drive. I had been using the second drive for backup/storage, but I'd like to put Ubuntu on it and have dual boot available.
I installed Ubuntu today for the first time on a Dell desktop running Windows XP sp3.
I opted to install on a second hard drive, following these instructions:
When I reboot my computer, and enter the boot sequence menu in BIOS, there isn't even an entry for my second hard drive.
Ok so heres what i want to do i have a amd laptop with two hard drives 1 is 500gb the other is 250gb, I want to install ubuntu on the 250gb drive currently the drive is empty the 500gb drive is my windows 7 main i dont want it touched in the installation now ive read other threads about dual booting 2 drives but they dont give clear answers for me to take the risk.
I own a system with two hard drives. I want to install three OS'es - Windows, Linux, and another OS. The other OS needs it's own hard drive and I can pick to boot from other hard drives in said OS. How can I dual boot windows and ubuntu on the second hard drive?
Hey guys, it's been a while since I sat down and actually messed with the inner workings of my Feisty desktop. Yes, I'm still running feisty, got compiz up and working well with my ATI card and decided that it was a good point to stop until I pick up a new box.
I recently resurrected a Dell Dimension 5000 desktop so that I could dual boot Windows XP and Ubuntu. The system has two 2 seperate SATA hard drives, 1 x300Gb for XP Pro(SP3) and 1 x 80 Gb for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
I installed the XP first on hda (300Gb) with the 80Gb drive disconnected. Then fully updated that installation and added a few goodies.
