Help Installing (Please Help Me I'm Sick of Microsoft)
i own a HP Pavillion PC and i can't get Linux installed, i want to dual boot with my windows and Caldera Openlinux 2.2 which i have on CD. However i need to partition my hard drive so i installed Partition Magic from the same CD which tells me to eject the CD and restart my pc which should then boot Partition Magic but my PC just restarts windows, i think is because of the HP Boot Screen which seems to skip a lot that other pcs dont(e.g counting the RAM at the start) i phoned HP Tech Support who reccomend i don't install Linux as it will Void my warranty, and they refuse to tell me how to remove the HP Boot Screen (but he told me it can be done) so can linux be installed on my PC or am i stuck with a glorified X-Box. :cry:
Can some one Please help me feel free to e-mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, but i'm stuck again
Thanks for all the help. i'm using Caldera because i got a CD with a book i bought so i though i'd give it a try. i've managed to sort out the partition and the boot logon, but whilst installing linux there wasn't my monitor on the list so i went through all the monitors and the only one were i could see anything was really big (i mean each icon is about 3'' x 3'' at so is the menu bar is there a display bar like in windows were i can fix this problems as i can not see full windows to be able to look around myself.
