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.
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).
I know there is no operating system on my computer, I had the HD 100% wiped. I was intending for Ubuntu to be my operating system. Am I to assume I cannot install from a DVD because I have no operating system? Is there something I'm missing? I tried with Puppy Linux too, because I believed that could be operated from the disc. Same thing, "No operating system".
