    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 12.10 dualboot windows 8

    Already searched...could not find any option for booting from CD-ROM in the Bios. There was no boot order option either. The only option was just a stupid Windows secure boot.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu for Illiterate (like, what's a computer? illiterate)

    I am surprise that Fubuntu or PCLinuxOS have not been mentioned. They are great for older computer and novice. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS can be problematic on some older computers, especially with random...
