I downloade Ubuntu to a thumb drive and can boot up without a problem on the thumb drive.
I have a dell XPS that got hit with a virus and it was too painful to remove it. I wiped the hard drive clean using the XP install disc (NTSF). When I tried to install and run windows it said that the drive was not available. I gave up at this point and got out my thumb drive and booted up in Ubuntu.
looking in this section of DSL forum I was hoping for basic instructions on simply: How to do dsl-hdinstall? I'm using the embeddable dsl and I have a second hard drive in my computer; I want to install to the second hard drive. I already have the hard drive erased.
I wanted to install ubuntu on my laptop. It's a lenovo u310 and it has a 32 gb ssd drive for caching windows and a 500 gb hard drive.
I want to know if its possible to partition the sdd drive and install ubuntu on about 10 gb of it and keep the rest of the ssd for the windows caching process. Im a college student and we use windows, so I must keep it.
I was messing around couple linux distros and a desktop earlier today. When I booted from the Ubuntu disk, it seemed to take like 2-5 minutes on each screen. So was basically taking like 10 minutes before I even got to the disk's menu. When i booted the machine off of openSUSE 11.2 disk it booted nice and fast, then installed without a hitch.
I am going to reuse an old hard drive to do a clean install of 12.04 LTS 64 bit. I have copied needed files to an external hard drive. The hard drive currently has 32 bit Ubuntu 12.04 with ext3 filesystem(the result of multiple upgrades). Will a clean install of 12.04 LTS 64 bit convert it to ext4 filesystem? Do I need to do anything to the old drive prior to clean install?
I have a Dell optiplex Gx270. I wished to install linux and dvd drive is broken, so I poped out the hard drive pluged it in to a usb adapter and plugged the adapter into my linux laptop and ran the install utility on the hard drive.
