I've got a 13gig HD, running win ME. Tried to install Mandrake with Windows, using "lnx4win" or whatever (I'm completely new to linux). Everything seemed to install fine until after I rebooted, it said GDI.EXE couldn't be find and switched off computer. Knowing that there was no way I
could get my files back, I tried to simply install Mandrake on the formatted drive. Seemed okay until I got the error, "Invalid system disk", even though I had no disk or CD in my drive.
So, I've managed to reinstall Win ME (despite losing all files) again.. but want linux. Why did I get those errors? What was I doing wrong?? Help, please?
