I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on a friends Dell Inspiron laptop. I normally boots up to Windows Vista Home Edition. As part of the install procedure I reduced the size of the largest ntfs partition to allow space for an ext4 root partition and a small swap partition.
I have an OLD HP laptop (purchased somewhere around 2007-2009) with Windows Vista on it, and I want to try replacing it with Ubuntu (completely uninstalling Vista eventually) to see if I can squeeze a bit more life out of it. (I don't know if I have the patience to try it side by side.
I noticed that on my laptop running Vista + FF (versions 23,24) didn't show the AT home page correctly. The "About Advertising Bench Forum.." graphic was missing. I'm don't know if the problem is the laptop or AT.
I have a laptop from 2008 which ran Vista on 320gb HD.
The Vista had been problematic since 2010 and finally came to DOOM failing to boot earlier this year-
I do not mind the Vista ended- but I would like to save my datas from it.
I could have just set new partition and installed Ubuntu, since it is able to traverse NTFS filesystem from my old Vista.
I use Vista on a HP pavilion DV2 laptop. When I look through all the services my laptop starts, it really seems there's way too much of it. I multi boot with XP and 7. Both startup in 40 seconds. Vista takes four minutes.
Is there some software that can determine which services I don't need? On 7, there's no propietary HP stuff at all, yet it seems to run fine.
