I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with a working copy of Vista running on it. I want to install Ubuntu Desktop on it. The twist is this: The laptop monitor is broken.
I can run a VGA monitor, but it will not clone the screen until after windows activates. When I try to install the CD helper that comes with WUBI, it errors out at the end and will not boot from CD.
I'm OK with destroying my windows installation from within windows so that the BIOS skips the hard drive and boots from CD, but I can't find how to do that either.
