Having problems with Dual Booting Ubuntu and Vista, Ubuntu having major issues.
Ok, so yesterday i was interested in Ubuntu,so i got the Lice CD and tried it out for a bit, seemed really cool and i decided to install it!
So i partition during the installation setup (Yes i defragged on Vista really well before that), and it loaded all the stuffs. So at the Grub screen i chose vista, let it understand the partition changes, and let it finish all of that. Then i went onto Ubuntu, almost to the interesting part,
So i tried to update, that worked, then it said to restart, so i restarted it and it said some line like:
*Shutting down now (not exact)
In the white text on the black screen and it just sat there. So i Ctrl+Alt+Del it and it ran the Grub again, i went back into Ubuntu and tried to install my driver for my Graphics card (nVidia GeForce GT 130M w/1gb of vram)and it said it didnt come up with anything.
So i decided to get rid of ubuntu cause i didnt know how it worked and because i fugured something was wrong or my computer couldnt function properly, or that i did something... Well anyways, so i go into Vista and knock out Ubuntus Partition.
So i restart Vista so it can recognise the changes in Partitions, and it gives me Grub Error 22!
So i put the Live CD in and partition the drive and iand install Ubuntu again after trying to use Acers Recovery Disks that i made when i first got the computer (Thursday, and no they arent vista disks, there Acer Recov Disks)
And it seemed to work fine, so im al ok.
I workked on vista for awhile getting back my wiped Hdd, and i go to Ubuntu after to work on it.
And wadda ya kno.. it wont go into Grub, just boots to Vista, so once again i put in the Live CD and click install, and nitice that Ubuntus P:artition is Corrupted! So i delete the partition from Live CD and reinstal once again.
now i did the Graphics card and updates on Ubuntu again and now i have mre errors then ever. Whenever i start up Ubuntu i get six mini screens on the screen and it gives me that line of words when i try and shut down/restart. It also wont let me change the Visual effects.
So now im wondering what im doing wrong, what i did wrong and How can i get this off my Pc.
Ubuntu seems like a pain in the butt right now, and unless theres any hopw of sucessfully dual booting then i wanna know how to get it off.
I dont understand how linux works at all, and i feel much more comfortable using Vista, although Ubuntu may be cool n all.
