Ubuntu Saves the Day
So ubuntu saved My sons computer from vista….lol. The computer orginally came with XP Media center, then we upgraded to vista only to find he couldn’t play some of his games on it due to the tremndous lag by vista. So (since I only had a vista upgrade disk) I inserted the ubuntu live CD used gparted to format the hard drive to NTFS and then was able to use my original system restoration disk which came with the P.C. to reinstall xp back on the system. It worked like a charm. I plan on installing ubuntu on the second hard drive and dual-booting. Gosh I just love ubuntu!!
