Unhappy Use SLED backup CD for reinstallation


Hi everyone,

I'am new to Linux. I bought a HP laptop that came with SLED OS so I unistalled it and put win.7.
Is it possible to reinstall SLED 11 along side with Win.7 using the backup CD?

Appreciate your answers..

If you have the option to install to hard disk via the backup disc, then yes. Most likely, you should be able to; If not, you could always download the latest version, burn to disc, and then install and dual boot. Might be the best way to go, since there are most likely updates for your version.

Cheers,

Josh
