  17. [lubuntu] Re: failure to install OS on dual boot at "select and install software" stage

    There is a lot of information in a BIOS. Would you mind narrowing this down, otherwise I have to look up everything in the BIOS since I don't know what specifically you are referring to. Thanks.

  18. [lubuntu] Re: failure to install OS on dual boot at "select and install software" stage

    OK, so what is it that you are recommending that I do? Partition the HDD differently?

  23. [lubuntu] Re: alternate ISO

    Nothing happens.



    Yes. Although I should re-iterate that the install ends with a failure at the "select and install software" step. The "Basic" install is before that, so perhaps that explains...
