This question already has an answer here:
I just started using Ubuntu and I need some help.
I have a 1GB Compaq Evo N610c laptop with 40GB of hard drive space and runs on Windows XP. It is approximately 11 years old and I just want to mess around with Ubuntu on it before I trash the laptop or take it apart.
Will I be able to run Ubuntu on it or any other version of it? I have already tried installing Ubuntu but I got a
(initramfs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system" error!
Any help is appreciated!
