I have recently bought a Sony Vaio Netbook VPCW12S1E, with Windows 7 Starter installed on it.
I would like to install Ubuntu's Netbook Remix on it. I have made the bootable usb stick, but the problem is I can't find how to enter it's bios to make the netbook startup from usb.
I'm currently using Linux Lite and wanted to try Ubuntu on my Toshiba netbook. I downloaded the 32 bit version of Ubuntu and burned a disk image of the download ISO file. I made sure that my system was set to boot from disk, but the install didn't occure upon retatrting my netbook.
I have had ubuntu on my netbook for a while now but i really need windows back on my netbook for one of my classes. I have no idea how to take it off. Every way i have seen so far that takes it off my netbook seems to lead me to another problem. My netbook cant read CD's because there is no CD drive.i just bought windows 7 but all it came with is a code. I really need help.
I run Ubuntu on some of my desktop and server machines (where it just works seamlessly). I am NOT a sysadmin by ANY means (I'm a programmer), though, and do not like to futz with hardware/software install issues. Now I want to buy a small netbook writing code, reading PDF papers and so forth on the go. I want to run Ubuntu on my netbook as well (ideally the standard distribution).
I'm planning on purchasing an Eee Netbook after the holidays and want to put linux on it. I've run Ubuntu for a couple years now and really like it but I want to make sure that I get the most out of the netbook. I've been doing some research and I'm not exactly sure what to do.
