Is there a way to run any Windows Installer natively within the most recent distro of Xubuntu?
I am attempting to install any version of Windows but my hand-me-down Dell Dimension 4700 Bios A09 will not let me boot from CD/DVD/USB.
You cannot run Windows binaries within Linux natively.
You either need to run a virtual machine e.g. VirtualBox
Or you need a compatibility layer like wine, PlayOnLinux, Crossover
Neither one will help you to install Windows for a dual-boot or to replace Linux on your computer if that is what you are after. In order to do so you will have to get your computer to boot from the installation media directly
- check the boot order in the BIOS
- check the installation media on a different device
- try using the boot (selection) menu
You can try installing Windows OS inside a virtual machine.
