I'm atttempting to install centOS 6.5 on a new dell machine through PXE boot. The PXE boot works fine for other PCs, just the new workstations are problematic. The PXE boot hangs on "Detecting Hardware" indefinately (I let it go for an hour without change).
Like every other operating system, Linux computer also contains a system or boot volume, which is used to boot your system. Boot device is one on which all the boot files and Linux operating system are installed. In some cases, you may encounter boot errors while trying to start Linux-based computer. This behavior may occur due to missing or damaged boot files.
I have gone from Mint to Ubuntu back to Mint all in the same afternoon and I am getting quite frustrated. I no longer have Windows on my computer. I have discs to go back but I imagine there will be mbr problems for me to surmount.
I currently am typing from my computer booted up with a USB stick with Mint 17.
i have a computer with an asus ax4sg-max mainboard.
i used the run xp but now I want it to be dual boot with linux mint 13.
I burned the dvd and rebooted my computer. But then, nothing happens! I look at my bios boot sequence to check my dvddrive was the first boot option. It was but the computer cannot boot from this dvd.
Recently I installed ubuntu onto a computer that already had windows 7 on it. The computer now dual boots through the grub boot loader. Everything works fine, but from past experiences with linux partitions (grub was damaged and I had to reinstall windows), I would like to be able to boot using the windows boot loader and am wondering how to safely switch to that boot loader.
I am very interested in the linux operating system. The only thing is that I am a complete amateur at programming and I do not have the resources to dual boot linux and or buy another system to run linux on. I have tried virtual machines, but they run a bit laggy on my computer. So my question is, how can I get involved with Linux?
