Q: my son’s 250 gig hard drive toshiba satellite 32 bit vista is frozen at “installing update 3 of 3, 50% done.” It’s a known issue. Vista reboot/repair cd with F12 does not help.
Ubuntu working from cd, I am about to install on the unit.
The Ubuntu setup is recommending partition like this—–
148 for vista and 100 for ubuntu. Is that good?
I am tempted to let it wipe the vista since it may be irreparable; but—
According to ubuntu setup, this may wipe some windows files.
According to Ubuntu posts,
—-it’s harder to re-install windows if ubuntu is in there first.
——-wireless with ubuntu may take some tweaking.
Q: How do I file share from windows 7 to vista? I have turned on file sharing and made sure all my folders are shared with everyone on my network. I can send files from vista to win 7 but not the other way around. Please help me fix this :/
