I dusted off an old laptop from 2004 which has Windows XP. I want to put Ubuntu on it.
So, I downloaded the CD image and then burnt it to a disc.
I tried starting the laptop and booting from CD but no luck. The CD drive doesn't work in the laptop anymore!
So I shared the files on the local server and then accessed the wubi.exe file from within Windows XP, and it proceeded to download something else and install. It then asked me to restart, which I did.
I now have a folder
C:\ubuntu with a bunch of files in it. How do I get the option to boot to Ubuntu?
Sorry, I have never installed a Linux variant before!
