I then had, the chose of "Install it alongside with Win XP", Install Ubunto and remove any other OS, or install it on a other partition (this was when I booted the computer with the USB). I installed it alongside win XP, it was really slow and on 100% load in idle.
This I'm not sure about (might just be because it's late),
But I know this,
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
1 10.7GB 63.2GB 52.4GB primary ntfs boot
2 63.2GB 250GB 187GB extended lba
5 63.2GB 250GB 187GB logical ntfs
I got this info from the Win XP Disk Management. I have no problem purging the whole harddrive, becuse my original Win XP OS is currupt and no vital information is on the harddrive. So I got 232,88GB that I can partition, I used C: as OS and programs and D: for storing of information.
Number/Name Capacity Type
2/(C:) 48,83GB ntfs Primary
5/(D:) 174,04GB ntfs
This is an nettop (Why? because everyone makes mistakes), so I decided to try Ubunto on an computer that I don't really care about. It's an Acer.
CPU: Intel atom CPU Z520 @1.33GHz (2CPUs)
Video memory: 8 MB
GPU: Can't really remember, but might be Graphic card Acceleration 5000. (think it's an GPU on the CPU, and not an dedicated graphic card)
I did some searching and found that Ubuntu is more resource heavy then XP and that the lubuntu might be better for older system. It's first time I'm diving in to the Linux system due to Microsoft.
And thanks for the help.
