Ubuntu :: Tri Booting Old Operating Systems?

Oct 30, 2010

I have a dual-boot ubuntu-Windows XP computer, and today, while rummaging in the basement, found some Windows 3.1 floppies. My laptop has no floppy drive, but just to ask, can you intsall old OSs (Winows 3, Mac OS 7)on your PC to make it tri boot if you already have some modern operating systems? And I've seen that old Operating systems can be downloaded, so how do you install those?

Ubuntu :: Booting With Multiple Operating Systems?

Jan 13, 2010

I have both windows XP home and Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my computer. I started with Ubuntu 8.04 (i think that was the number) and it has updated a few times since then. You see the thing is that when I choose an operating system at the boot up, it lists all of the updates to ubuntu. so there are like 12 options to choose from besides windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Use Same / Home Partition For Two Operating Systems?

Oct 17, 2010

Is it possible? (and probable?) I've successfully followed psychocats' tutorial on creating a separate home in ubuntu and noticed that it basically "only" needs fstab editing, so I wonder if could create the same home for two OSs (ubuntu and fedora). The only problem which comes to my mind is file/folder ownership but I'm not sure. and since I'm just a newbie, I think it'd be better if I consult to this forum first before messing up with OS.

Ubuntu :: Become A Very Competent User Of Operating Systems?

May 12, 2011

I am looking for recommendations on books and studying material for a person starting from zero and wanting to become a very competent user of Linux operating systems. From learning the very basic commands and use of the terminal to contributing to the development of a distro.

Can someone please suggest any books or authors that would be suited to start a program of this sort? (It would be preferable if they are available in hard copy format but e-books could also work)

I would also like to have an expert opinion on how much time you think it would take to get from novice to expert in the Linux world if devoting roughly thirty five hours a week. I intend to compile a step by step curriculum from personal experiences.

Fedora Installation :: Way To Get Multiple Operating Systems

Nov 22, 2010

I installed Fedora 14 in a dual boot with Windows 7 (Win 7 came preinstalled on my Vaio, I freed up 30 GB on a hard disk drive and installed Fedora in it).The first reboot took me straight to Windows. I could not find a way to get multiple Operating systems, so I tried looking on the net a bit, and installed EasyBCD. This gave me the option of choosing the boot up OS. But when I choose Fedora in the options, the screen changes to GRUB4DOS which lists Fedora and Other as my two boot options.Selecting either one of these options results in Error 22 No partition found.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lynx Dual Boot With 3 Operating Systems

May 11, 2010

I am preparing to do a fresh install of lucid lynx dual boot with vist@ Currently I am running 9.04 in this configuration. The install guide for Lucid says the new grub2 doesn't support more than 2 operating systems. plus I apparently can't edit it either. Besides vist@ there is a hp recovery partition which has a seperate entry in my existing grub. Does this mean I can't use the lucid desktop disk for a fresh install because I would have 3 operating systems? Lynx, vist@ and HP recovery partition.

I only have two applications left I am using on vist@, but I have no recovery disk, only an old image for my vist@. I am very concerned about this upgrade. 5.04 went smooth and each one since then has been a bit harder. I could not get 9.10 to run and had to go back to 9.04. I hope I am not at the end of the road. How about using grub instead of grub2?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot - No Operating Systems Detected?

Jul 16, 2011

I'm trying to dual boot Ubuntu and Win7, and I just did a clean install of Win7. However, when I start the Ubuntu installation it merely just says no operating systems detected and my only option is to erase the whole disk. I can see the NTFS partition in disk utility but can't see anything in GParted.

I've tried to look through the forums but can't seem to find a solution to this exact problem - does anyone point me in the right direction or to the solution?

Installation :: Quick Dual Booting Operating Systems

Jul 26, 2010

I have no clue how Linux works and I haven't had much experience installing/dual booting operating systems. Most of my knowledge in computers comes from fixing errors with crappy hardware or Windows. Now I want to learn how to use a computer instead of how to fix it. Hence, I want to have Windows & Linux on my computer. My laptop(Acer Aspire 4530) has two hard drives, one is Vista and the other was empty(until I filled it with stuff). What is the simplest method to install Linux (or any of its variations) on this computer? Do I just install/partition all of Drive B to Linux and leave Drive A for Vista?

General :: Minimum And Typical Requirements For All / Many Operating Systems?

Mar 2, 2011

I wanted to test my first and relatively small SSD hard drive (32 GB) and started wondering how much disk space do I need for Windows XP SP3 and Fedora 13 installation. I started searching for information and created my own page listing loosely system requirements, because it seems to be difficult to find minimum and especially typical installation disk space consumption.

Has anyone made a single page listing minimum, typical and recommended system requirements, so you can easily use that single page for comparing operating system requirements especially how much hard disk space is needed?

Ubuntu Installation :: No Operating Systems Found On Dual Boot Install

Aug 23, 2010

I currently have Windows 7 installed. I wish to dual boot this with Ubuntu 10.4. On a 120gb drive I allocated a large percentage to Windows and have put two partitions on the end; 1gb for swap, 15gb for Ubuntu. However, when I go to install and get to the partition manager bit it claims no operating systems have been found. Contrary to this, when I boot into the live CD it sees all the partitions, however these cannot be accessed and no error messages are displayed (However, accessing the Windows partition appeared to corrupt the install and I had to format...). When running install from the live environment the same no operating systems found error occurs. Windows 7 works fine and the drive is IDE (if this makes any difference).
