I tried to upgrade 12.10 to 13.04 and now have a dead system. The best way forward seems to be a repair install from the 13.04 live CD.
Here is my setup:
A homebuilt desktop PC: AMD X3 425 CPU, 4 GB RAM, 2 hard disks with lots of space.
And a problem ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card (the reason why it's dead) which of course ATI do not support any more (thanks AMD)
The system is a dual boot with Windows XP.
I do not want to do anything to disturb the Win XP boot, and I do not ever want to have to re-install Win XP.
So now the problem.
When I do the repair installation from the live CD, I am told:
'Sorry, an error occurred and it was not possible to install the boot loader at the specified location'
(this happens without me specifying a location, so it is just the default installation choice)
Here I stopped.
If I proceed (and probably have to specify a location, which I can since I have 2 disks) will I mess up my dual boot?
Thanks for your help
