|Re: Ubuntu Linux by blackweaver(m): 4:34pm On Aug 29|
sorry i've been out of contact for a while. Have you been able to install mint?
While 2gb should be able to install kde and all its packages, you might not have much data left on your phone.
You don't need format your flash per se, if the flash needs to be formatted, the boot disk maker will format it for you.
30gb space should be more than enough for you, i've installed linux on a 10gb partition without much issues

blackweaver:No oo, I didn't install it, I am waiting for your response. I downloaded mate and even write/burn to the flash. I hope the installation process is the same with that of xface ( I don't want to lose my data ooo) And please what should I do after the installation? Please check out this video. Thanks. https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=PLSmXPSsgkZLsiemyy_Rzcqf_0iED8ZfHS&v=xbQu4QRud6g

Oh you have mate? don't worry about xfce. Don't worry after installation you're good to go. I'm guessing you're using a live boot at the moment. That's fine until you're sure you want to install on your harddrive
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Romeo386: 7:01pm On Aug 30|
blackweaver:Live boot? I don't understand oo... Yes i have mate.I downloaded it and burn/write it to USB flash. I just don't want to make any mistake that will make me lose my files in my HDD. I am sure I want to install on my HDD. Please respond immediately, my body dey hot, lol.Tanx.

blackweaver:Bro, I followed the instructions in that video that I sent to you and now I can't access windows. My system always boot directly to Linux mint. Does that mean that it erased my windows partition? I am finished oo
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Romeo386: 3:20am On Aug 31|
I used the tutorial in this vedio https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=PLSmXPSsgkZLsiemyy_Rzcqf_0iED8ZfHS&v=xbQu4QRud6g
Someone should help mea ln[8
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by blackweaver(m): 10:10am On Aug 31|
I really hope not. I actually don't like following instructions in videos, i prefer reading them, so coming back to a point is pretty straightforward.
Wow, i'm just looking at the video and that is not a method I would use to install linux mint.
I hope you chose the install mind alongside windows option because if you use the erase disk option, you WILL lose your data.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 9:06am On Sep 01|
Can you remember at any point in the installation where you to got to partitioning. What did you do there?
Manual guide or install on entire harddrive? Something like this...

Romeo386:hahahaha welcome to the Linux world.. My best advice 2 everyone is 2 experiment in virtual PCs or get another free PC to try stuffs on. Maybe u choose d erase disk option
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by celestialAgent(m): 9:27am On Sep 09|
Romeo386:Scan your hard disc with a recovery software to get your files back.
Note: you have to scan it as an external drive not while in the system. After you have recovered your files, make a partion and run your window on dual boot if you must use Linux and windows or better still run a guest window.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by blackweaver(m): 9:16pm On Sep 10|
on your bootable flash, see if you can install testdisk or photorec. You will probably need an external harddrive to recover to
