    Installed Linux Won't Windows XP Back


    I've installed Gentoo Linux. I like it and all but when it came to running CS with winex it was really really slow and I had tried lots of things to speed it up.. So I decided to go back to windows...
    I can't now get the computer to boot off a floppy or windows xp cd. It will boot off of a gentoo live cd..
    Any help thanks

    Whatever you delete today, you desperately need tomorrow.

    check bios to make sure it can boot from cd just in case, perhaps you windows cd isn't bootable or perhaps your doing something wrong. One of the three is where your solution lies he eh windows blows & did you install the drivers for your graphics drivers and do you have a ****** ati card. ??????? might want to make a partition and put windows on it i say 5 gigs is enough for winblows.

    Yeah..I've booted up on cd before...When I goto the bios it won't respond to my keyboard but the clock still runs. Have no idea why it does that...
    But I have no clue why it isn't booting off floopy. I'm gonna get another windows cd and try again


    I loved linux just..It was a fun experience. The video card I was using was a voodoo3 wich ran fine on windows but ran really slow with winex :/. With the frustration of others wanting to play CS made me want to go back to windows.

    Boss, winex is slower coz it tries to emulate Windows Environment. BUT getting rid of Linux for sake of a GAME is NOT a good idea. You've LOT to learn in LINUX and if you really need to play CS have a dual boot ... just a sincere advice

    Why would it last longer if you built your own?
