Linux does not work for me at all right now. Never did on this computer. Toshiba satellite L750 d . Nothing I have tried have brought any results. I am stuck in low graphics mode. And before that, webgl did not work no matter what, except a insanely laggy version in Firefox. After rebooting after I removed Firefox. I got stuck in this mode.

All I want to know is if I can install a partition of Ubuntu, take my files from the buggy version and transfer them. So that I can get windows back, since none of the graphics drivers work for my laptop.

I tried reinstalling graphic driver, desktop, video driver, failsafe x recovery mode, root commands.. I need this pc for work. Would like a windows partition back until I learned a way to make Ubuntu work.

  • It worked. I was able to partition the hard drive without any trouble. Found my files. And downloaded them onto the fresh ubuntu partition. Onwards to remove the old partition. – Oliver Schöning Mar 14 '13 at 3:29
