"I got a message from Ubuntu about BIOS dates"
While 1999 is old, that plus "message from Ubuntu" could help.
I am trying to install Ubuntu 7.04 alternate CD downloaded from Ubuntu.com, I've verified the CD (ubuntu has a program for that) and it said my CD copy is OK !
I am trying to install ubuntu in my old Compaq Presario 5360 (02 disk: 13GB and 10 GB both are IDE and 320 MB RAM) this machine works prefectly with Windows XP... I run ubuntu 5.04 from the CD Live and aparently everything is OK in this machine, but now I want to install v7.04 in my Hard Disk
well, When I am installing my computer freezes when is Partitioning Disks, I've tried twice and it stop in the same process... stop in 50% of the partition job, I am sure the disks are OK 'cause I've used both before in XP, same problem twice in the same process (50% done)
Any Idea? I am new in Linux and I want to try it seriously, but this issue is annoying.
I've noticed the BIOS is from 1999 and I got a message from Ubuntu about BIOS dates, somebody nows something about it?
Thank you for your support.
