Morning all: newbie here. My question: I have a Sony Vaio that has no operating system installed. Can Ubuntu be installed as the only operating system on this machine? Appreciate any help.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on A Sony Vaio VGN-FS920. I need to know how to install drivers for the touchpad and basicaly general operating drivers. I know you can go to Sony's site and get them but they are all for Windows XP. What can I do. I really like Ubuntu and I think it is the best system for this older model computer.
I am new to Ubuntu and just decided to install it in (on my new lenovo thinkpad) in addition to my windows 7 operating system. Now, whenever I reboot the computer, it only runs window 7. I went (in windows) to Control Pannel -> System -> Advanced Settings -> Startup and Ubuntu is not even listed as a choice for operating system.
Recently, I bought a RAM (Vengeance CMSX8GX3M2A1600C9) for my laptop (eMachines E732G). Yesterday I installed the RAM on my laptop.
There was a problem. I could not install any operating system (Windows, Ubuntu). Also I could not load already installed an operating system. I saw the screensaver of the operating system and then reboot occurred. You can see it on video.
I have installed Ubuntu using Wubi on my Windows 7 machine (Sony Vaio). Everything installed perfectly, but whenever I reboot my system there is no Ubuntu (there is no dual boot menu). I checked my Windows setting and it seems there is only Windows (it could not recognize Ubuntu).
Please help me to install Ubuntu 14:04 in a dual-boot setup with Windows 8 on laptops Sony Vaio E Series SVE14122CV of me. When I try to install Ubuntu, after restart To set is complete, the system gives me a message saying: operating system not pound. Then I changed the BIOS settings as normal, and it just boot Windows 8.
