    Unhappy Linspire Installation Help


    Hi members,

    Im new to this forum.I installed Linspire few days back after my friend suggested.Im not computer savvy , so dont know much about computers. im using a 160 GB HDD with 3 partitions for WindowsXP and 1 for Linspire. When i boot into Linspire i can access only one partition of the Windows,Is there any way to gain access to all the 3 partitions of Windows XP?
    Im using Linspire 6.0. If there is no way to do that,pls suggest any other Linux distribution with dual boot compatibility for Windows XP where i can access all the partitions of Windows.

    My System configuration is 160GB HDD,Intel Pentium 4,512MB RAM, Mercury MotherBoard.

    Thank You

    -Jerkians

    Linspire is a discontinued and unsupported distribution. My impression is that it wasn't particularly good to begin with.

    Give Ubuntu a go.

    EDIT: And hello and welcome!
