I want to install Linux Utumbu on Windows XP. I downloaded the program, but it is not possible to boot from CD. How can I overcome this problem?
When you boot your computer, you will see a message to press a button to enter setup or boot options. Press one of them depending on your motherboard and move CD/DVD, Optical Drive to above Hard Drive. Then it will boot from the CD first before your harddrive.
I duel booted linux and Windows XP, and I installed Ubuntu first to load GRUB, then installed XP. In XP, i then installed another program that let me view the partitioned linux drive.
If you want instructions, let me know.
I would echo Josh - the easiest way to install Linux is using Wubi.
Can you boot from a USB? Cause if you can another option is to create a bootable USB using unetbootin
If you want to install it inside Windows, you can use Wubi, which will load when you put the cd in with Windows running. If there is a problem with the disk, you could use Virtual Clone Drive to load the iso file.
