I have an Acer laptop with an Intel Atom CPU N2600 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM and 360GB HDD out of which I have partitioned 100GB for the Ubuntu installation. I have burned the installation disk on a USB flash drive. I have also set the boot priority to boot from the USB drive.
I have just installed 12.04 LTS 32bit because it was recommended but it seems slow, slightly slower than the EX family edition windows which came with the notebook and I used for 3 years....
so it makes me wonder if this is the correct version of Ubuntu for me.
(or.. maybe I need to install the driver for my built in graphic card?
I have a fairly old Asus notebook.
I have downloaded Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS and I can not open it because I needed an .ISO opener.
Which one is reliable?
Will that be enough?
Is it the adequate version for a notebook?
I've been using Ubuntu for years. Now I bought a new notebook and want to install Ubuntu again but I can't. My notebook is a Lenovo S300 ieadpad with preinstalled Windows 8. I want Ubuntu to be my only OS.
Here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI) I read some instructions to how install Ubuntu on a UEFI system. So I downloaded ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso and created a live USB.
I am new here in this board and I have to apologize for my bad English - I am 16 years old and I am from Germany. Please forgive me my mistakes.
I installed Ubuntu many times on my notebook and on other PCs but after a few days I turned back to Windows. Yesterday I installed Windows 7 Professional and now I noticed that my graphic card don't work - whyever.
I'll soon get a new notebook with an Intel Core i7 (3rd gen) processor. I would like to install 64bit Ubuntu 13.04 on the notebook and have the following questions:
Would one choose to install the "PC (Intel x86) desktop image" or "64-bit PC (AMD 64) desktop image" (see http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/)?. As far as I know, only the latter is 64bit. Is that true?
