I need a big help. So the problem is, i bought a computer with "Linspire", some linux program i guess, adn i simply CANT get into Linux, can anyone tell me, can i go to Windows,and how, on as easy way as possible.
Thanks alot for time you take into this, really appreciate it.
ermm.. Do you have windows installed? Where did you get this computer, and did the person selling it to you tell you anything about the computer? If you restart the computer and you don't see an option to boot into windows, I'm assuming you'll need to go shell out the $300 to buy a copy of windows XP ...or you could just learn how to use Linux for free, just ask.
Linspire is Linux. It the operating system on the computer you bought. Plug everything in and turn it on. When it's done booting, you'll be in Linux. If you want to use Windows, you'll need to buy Windows and install it.
ok, so yes, I am using illegal windows, simply because of this computer wont be much connected online. SO anywAY, I downloaded Windows xp from torrent, when downloading windows(just like any game) you get a cd image, wich either you have to burn on a cd or use virtual cd opener, like PowerISO or Daemon Tools. Anyway, i burned the cd image to a cd, and put the cd in the CD-ROM, but when I try to run the image thats on the CD, the computer scans it, then nothing.
