- Installing ubuntu onto my 13 year old PC 2 answers
Since I loaded ubuntu 12.4 LTS I can no longer get into windows XP. When I boot the computer Windows XP goes through its sequence until it shows boot from CD/DVD then the screen comes up to chose ubuntu or windows xp but the arrow keys do not respnd and ubuntu opens. Also I am not sure if I need the 320 updates the update manager says are available. They will not install anyway. I am a rookie when it comes to computers. What are my options? I would like to have a dual boot computer with ubuntu and windows xp. Any help would be appreciated.
