My advice would be for you to try Xubuntu first and then Lubuntu if you feel that your PC is not running as fast as it should be.
I think I might try Xubuntu first, just because it looks better. I have a 500GB External HD so I can put all my files to that before the install.
I've done a little review of Lubuntu 12.04 a while back, and, IFAIK, some of the issues haven't been resolved to this day. I am rather sceptical of "rave reviews", they are usually dunb and worthless. :P
As this thread is not about the merits of Lubuntu, let's not discuss it here. Feel free to PM me if you have comments.
I'm in the process of putting everything important to my EX HDD. When I'm done with that I'll put the ISO image on a disc and be ready to install probably tomorrow sometime.
Having a bit of a problem right now. I changed the boot options to CDROM first and then HDD and at boot it says there's no disc or nothing to boot from that.
Anyways did I burn the iso. image correctly? Because when I have the disc in it shows this: http://i.imgur.com/s4B2B.jpg
I thought it was just supposed to be the ISO image on the disc.
I think I might know what the problem is, I'm pretty sure I was having problems because of this when I first installed 8.04 back in the day. Anyways at startup, it lists how much RAM I have, and it lists it as 256MB. Which is wrong of course because I have 600MB of RAM or so.
Anyways could this be a problem when trying to install?
Also with the disc in the drive it brings up this prompt:
The options are Cancel or Start Package Manager. Should I go to Package Manager and see if it's possible to install from there?Code:
A volume with software packages has been detected.
Would you like to open it with the package manager?
Also there's another option at boot "click esc to go to menu or setup or something. I can get into CMOS right at the beginning by pressing Delete when it says to. After that page loads it loads the next where the option to click "esc" to go to menu or something along those lines. I have a very limited time to click it, because it's only 2 seconds.
