Kill. Me. :damnpc: :damnpc: :damnpc: :damnpc: :damnpc: :damnpc: :damnpc: :damnpc: :damnpc: :damnpc:

Windows XP O/S, 256MB nVidia video card, 1GB ram, and wanting to use a 10GB partition.

Okay, the BIOS boots (first screen that comes up), boots into CD Ubuntu menu, I choose Start or Install (first option), it goes into the next loading screen (orange bar goes back and forth), goes into the text loading screen (Loading XXX [OK]), and freezes.

I downloaded Feisty Fawn, it worked until "Loading Enterprise (what ever what ever what ever) _" and then it freezes. :wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:

I have burned around 10 ISO's so far, TRYING to get Linux to work on my Windows 95 machine, and 3 today trying to get it onto my laptop!


HALP!!!

You're trying the latest ubuntu on a Windows 95 machine? well there's your problem...

Try using the Alternate Install disk on your laptop to install Ubuntu to it, instead of the LiveCD.

Also, look into a light distro for your Win95 box.

I tried Ubuntu on my old PC. Didn't work at all. Then I tried Xubuntu. Didn't work either. I guess 128 MB of ram just isn't enough :frown:

Even Xubuntu isn't low enough for a PC like that ;)

The built in partition editor will allow you to resize your current partiton and allow you to make another for Ubuntu.
