I saw mythbuntu on the gadget show and i thought it would be an easy way to replace our old PVR. Im not so sure about the easy part now.
I spend ages trying to find the wubi then i find i just have to unzip the iso with 7z. After running wubi sucsessfuly i restart and then i let linux do its thing and i answer the questions and it compleats. However when i restart and go to the mythbuntu option on the xp bootloader grub loads but with no option to load mythbuntu, just xp!
I then go on a wild goose chase trying to install gag then realising i need to burn a cd (which i cannot do because i have just a cd-rom/dvd reader). I then run an old live cd but cannot find a way to re-install grub. I could have done that but i figured another try would fix it, wouldnt it?
Secondly i tried with wubi again, this time running live cd before installing. It got to copying files/just after i scelected the graphics drivers before crashing.
I tried again using the same settings as before and it got to "ready when you are" with no dialouge boxes for it to be waiting for. I thought it was waiting for me to shut down so i did then restarted...into the same live cd
This time the install worked smoothly and at the end it asked me to reboot, wich i did. When it came back on it booted straight to grub with no option for xp which errored:
All of this forced me (after 6 hours of trying) to quit and ask the forums on the other pc. Go easy on me, i am a Dumb Noob!Code:error: no such device: a1708be7-dda2-4ao8bd2f-d4b1c6d0f38 grub rescue>_
If anyone needs the hardware specs i will get them for them.
