Alright weird situation. Even though I have internet access I do not have internet access to the laptop I am trying to fix. (Currently on deployment and I can't connect my personal laptop to the internet.) I can download tools and transfer them to my laptop though.
Sometime ago I had Vista. I downloaded 10.04 and installed it. Boom dual boot. Sometime later I upgraded to Win7. Dual boot goes bye bye. Well it has been well over a year since I have done anything with ubuntu. But I needed a project and trying to bring back my Ubuntu sounded like a good one.
I have a live CD of 10.04, I can not connect my personal laptop to our network onboard the ship for internet access.
I need a way to bring back my partition. It is telling me to enable the component called 'universe' I figured out that is the ubuntu community (correct?)
I need some good commands to run on this baby.
Also..Could I install on top of the partition (just by selecting defaults) without destroying already downloaded programs, pictures, files, etc?
Thanks for any help you could give me.
