Linux Install Problems on a HP Pavilion a305w
Recently was given a HP Pavilion a305w
512 RAM, 2.7 MHz Celeron, 40 G HD
Hard drive is completely wiped with Partition Wizard and filled with all 0's.
Am using it to try different Linux distros. Have successfully installed PCLinuxOS, Linux Arch-Bang, Arch, Dam Small Linux, and a couple others.
Cannot install Yoper, Ubuntu, Linux Mint and a couple others.
ALL OF THE ABOVE RUN FINE FROM THE LIVE CD.
Dam Small Linux will install, but not go on-line with my specific Linksys Wireless Router (problem noted in Yoper's help section); all the rest will.
Yoper will not go into the install mode; always goes back into the Live CD mode.
Ubuntu and Mint get well into the install, then I get an error message.
I've burned several iso's on different computers and tried both Mint 9 & 10 with the same result on this old Pavilion.
Suggestions for getting Yoper and Mint installed, please.
Question: If I re-install PCLinuxOS, can I use it to install Yoper and/or Mint (How?)?
Would like to install Linux Mint Debian via stick, suggestions, please.
