More about : boot linux plzz The Stealthinator February 12, 2013 1:03:43 AM I take it you are trying to dual boot XP and a linux distro. In my experience Ubuntu is the easiest to dual boot. You should download the windows installer from ubuntu.com (wubi.exe). Run that and select a seperate (blank) partition to install ubuntu to. Let the install run and when finished reboot your computer. Ubuntu should be one of the options to boot into in the boot manager. m 0 l seogoat February 12, 2013 5:50:42 AM Linux in some cases doesn't boot if the dvd rw is plugged into sata 3.
