    Most distro's come with drivers already installed. I'll give you an example .My laptop is about 4 years + old with Intel4000 graphics , getting it on my Debian(pc) and ubuntu(laptop) was a mission and to this day I can't get the exact driver to work even though I know the source code is...

    [SOLVED] Best hardware (build) for linux

    I don't understand your question. Are you new to Linux in general or..? Linux distro's can run on practically anything really.There is always something that will work . Purchasing a machine for one said purpose isn't wise .What distro did you install on your current machine and what exactly...

    Laptop Hard Drive

    Hmm not really sure if this is wise or not .This is what I did on my windows 10 but let me say it's not practical at all. I ONLy use Windows for 1 piece of software (work) and that's it so I will never update the system.I don't really care about anything on it because I'm never using it and of...

    Laptop Hard Drive

    I can't really find anything regarding the warranty of hp machines for the last few years but I did find that .That's on the Hp site and it seems like the hardware is still covered . My understanding is this and I'm pretty sure I can be wrong , the operating systems installed on the laptops you...

    Laptop Hard Drive

    Correct but with the os there are a few ways around it .You just need to have the windows os installed so you can always install it before you take it in to the store . However with the casing it's different, there are screws which contain Loctite so if at anytime you remove a screw the...

    Laptop Hard Drive

    Oh wait I confused myself . For a 2nd I thought you wanted to run two os's on two drives. If you looking at buying hard drives remember if it sounds too good to be true it probably sucks .I would personally stay away from those Samsung and entry level Seagate drives .If you want something fast...

    Resize partition for more room for linux

    hmm I don't think you are allowed to resize an active partition .I'm assuming you have a dual boot , correct? You windows os will have the settings greyed out and your Linux distro won't allow you to use gparted because it's an active partition . Steps 1) Visit Gparted website . Remember you...

    Have heard Linux is the way to go

    I'm going type my ass off ,and hoping you read the entire thing lol. If you are " new " to Linux and do not want to mess around in the terminal I would have suggested Mint .The default desktop looks somewhat like windows 7 and sadly I do not like it .Also I find that it doesn't work properly on...

    Can't Boot Windows 7 after installing Kali Linux

    Your kali installation should show that on the grub loader (screen) .Windows manager and the Linux distro .If your partition tablets don't match it won't pickup.You can always go to the bios to change the boot entry and priority . All the best..

    Can't Boot Windows 7 after installing Kali Linux

    I'm going to try and keep this as simple as possible. The message above isn't too clear as well . Windows 7 Uses MBR partitioning and if you used the UEFI it will not boot .Don't change the boot order from the boot menu .Do this : 1) Go into your bios 2) Look at boot devices and change it from...
