    Question Before installing Ubuntu on serp5

    Hi,

    Do we have to change something in BIOS before installing only Ubuntu on serval pro 5?
    I see in the BIOS settings some options for the OS like

    Others
    WinXP
    Vista/Windows7

    if i choose 'Others' before installing Ubuntu, will this affect the performance? or should i go 'Vista/Windows7- AHCI' for better performance?

    If i want to install more than one OS, what to choose?

    I had to change my Pangolin from Vista to XP when installing XP because the XP disk doesn't have AHCI drivers. Ubuntu did not complain and I did not notice any performance issues, so it probably doesn't matter. That said, I'd set it to Vista/7. Why not use it if you can?
