    Re: Not sure if I have x386 cpu

    Might running 32b version of 18.04, 20.04 does not have 32b, which is why the warning. Have at least three years before needing to upgrade, which might need a new install to 64 bit version.

    [SOLVED] Re: Trouble Booting USB with Full Install

    Why not just install in one of the old dells. This way Windows can't goof up Ubuntu and Ubuntu can't goof up Windows. You don't use both systems at same time with a dual boot system anyway.

    Re: How to acheive dual boot option

    As long as everything goes good should only need to boot Xubuntu and do sudo update-grub(hopefully UEFI works same as Legacy for this). Would wait a bit and see if better people have better ideas.

    Re: what do you guys think about tails os?

    Depends how you use it. Use it just as a regular OS or use it for security. Using it for security, do you log in to websites? Logging in will defeat the main purpose of the Tails OS.
