    I Have A C720 Chromebook And I Already Did Up Ubuntu But Im Not That Good With it

    I Started Messing Around With Windows And Theres A Way To Get Windows 8 With No Driver Support, I Figure Xp Black Just Might Have Them

    Ive Gotten To Dev Mode And Enabled SeaBios And Got My Xp Black Usb To Boot But I Ran Into A Problem...

    "Windows NT Only Found 192K Low Memory..... 512k Low Memory Required To Run Windows Nt"

    Now My Question Is, Is There Anyway To Change Low Memory, I Am In Dev Mode And Have shell And sudo bash If Needed


    Or If Anyone Has Anyother Suggestion I Would Appreciate It

    Also Ill Be Posting A Few Places And See What I Get

    ChromeOS and Ubuntu are Linux. That's O.K. That's legit. This is a Linux Forum.

    You want us to advise you about using a pirated version of Windows XP. Official support for Windows XP has ended.

    Err...No... Not me...

    I will gladly tell you how to get better with Ubuntu. You might start by looking at http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Trusty

    Yeah Sry, I Just Didn't Know Where To Post, Only Thing I Could Ever Find Is Windows 8.1 On c720 So I Figured Xp's Gatta Work, Well I Ditched That For Now And Actually Tried Ubuntu Again Last Night, The Mouse Just Disaperd On Me... During Install One Patch ,the Last Had To Be Skipped. My Prob Is Trying To Get Programs on Linux, Theres A Tutorial On Bodhi And Fits the More Minimalisticness And You Can Install To Usb, So I Guess My Question Is Can It Work Like Ubuntu With AppCenter And I See It Has One But What About VM's Or
    Something With A Tarball, Its All A Bit Confusing To Me And I Plan On Going To School For An IT Degree In General So IDk, I Just Need Like Dreamweaver And Gimp And Reliable Torrents On My Chromebook, And Easy Os Like Xp I Know Verey Well And Ability To Do Anything.... Im Working With Chromebook c720, Chrome OS 35, 1 32Gb Sd With Usb Connecter If Needed And 16Gb Sd With Usb Needed And Advice Would Help.... Thank You

    Dreamweaver is a Windows program. It can be installed on Linux. Google : install dreamweaver on linux . Look at: http://alternativeto.net/software/adobe-dreamweaver/?platform=linux . I recommend BlueGriffon

    Gimp has a native Linux version.

    I don't think that having a Torrent is part of a college course. Look here:

    Must agree with the above. This is a Linux forum and we generally don't provide Winblows support. Besides, it you want Winblows, a chromebook is not best for such a memory hogging system.

    At Distroshare, we currently have 3 ubuntu based distros pre-configured for the acer c720. All you have to do is download the one you want and install it. Everything works right out of the box. Search google for distroshare to find us since I can't submit a link.
