    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS grub/install problem

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS grub/install problem

    Well, this did not help. GRUB is now installed into sda5, and I can invoke it using EasyBCD. It does not start boot process, however, but stays at the command line. I can type in

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS grub/install problem

    Thank you for your detailed answer.



    In fact this is exactly what I wanted to do. I thought that unchecking "Install the Grub boot loader to the master boot record" will do the task.

    Exactly. There are always problems with hardware, and most likely they will remain forever. Please note that I do not blame XUbuntu developers for wrong resolution, it is not their problem.

    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    It is completely wrong. In fact, it is vice-versa. There is at least one thing you can do in PS but not
    in GIMP. It is 16-bit processing. Period. No need to do any more comparison. There is...

    First of all, decide what you need. For games you typically need more powerful graphics card, but almost any good sound will do. This configuration does not seem well balanced

    You're right, but being a novice I do not know what's going wrong. I seldom can identify the source
