So basically I installed Windows 8 and have not found it a decent OS, to my chagrin when I tried to install the latest Ubuntu via flash, the flash drive wouldn't load. It just went to the windows 8 startup page. I changed the boot settings and everything, any thoughts?
NOTE: Flash drive created from uncompressing the iso onto my flash drive via 7zip.
My friend wants to install Ubuntu on her comp without her family know about it. So she wants some arrangement done so that no one gets to know about her migration to Linux.
She wants the entire installaion done in the comp except grub. She wants when any one boots the comp it would normaly boot in to Windows without anyone geting any idea that there is another OS in the HDD.
I am running windows 7 64 bit, and wanted to try out linux. I downloaded Ubuntu 12.04 desktop, then downloaded the USB installer mentioned on http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/...ick-on-windows . I followed the directions, and installed the ISO onto the flash drive.
I rebooted my machine, and booted from USB. I tried to run linux from the flash drive, then got a lot of text.
i just installed ubuntu 11.04 onto this netbook. I had to use a flash key . during the install , i tried putting ubuntu on a separate partition , but it kept showing a 'no root file system is defined'. i didn't really know what i could do to fix it , so i decided to install it alongside windows. i have a windows 7 installation which works perfectly fine.
I have a Dell Dimension 4600 desktop that I no longer use and I decided to turn it into a server. It is running Windows XP. Now, I had a flash drive that has Ubuntu 11.0 on it where I used it to install Ubuntu on another computer.
I've been trying to help a friend reinstall Windows XP after she decided she wasn't ready for Ubuntu, but when I boot her Lenovo T61p from the Windows XP install disk, it complains that there is no hard drive. But the hard drive is fine, and will still boot Ubuntu.
I have a Toshiba AMD 64 Bit computer with a 1TB USB Drive, HUBMAN 4 port hub, 8GB Flash Drive, and 16 GB Flash Drive connected to HUBMAN 4 port Hub. I am running Windows Premium 64 Bit, installed Ubuntu 13,04 and selected to install alongside Windows. All H311 broke out shortly thereafter!!!
