    The first thing you can do is: write slower and with punctuation

    A lot of the users here are not native english speakers including myself and I have problems understanding your post

    Can you rephrase it?

    open terminal/konsole and execute this
    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    post output here.

    as Juan Pablo suggested already, please write slowly and take care of punctuation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Well, have you asked about the printers on the forum? Also, before installing Windows, have a look at HP's support for Linux printing, and also CUPS and http://www.linuxprinting.org/, gimp-print (comes with The GIMP), Your laptop not booting from the CD is not something to do with any operating systems, to be honest.
