- Ubuntu only works off the LIVE CD, not from the HDD.
-i've used Ubuntu on Live CD for web browsing, word processing, listening to music of an external HDD and i've
opened about 9 programs at the same time from the live CD and there are ZERO lags, it is much faster than
my P4 with WIN XP on the HDD.
-Fedora 8, Suse, PCLinux, do not even boot of the live CD. I chose to run the Live CD and i just get blank screens. I've tried adding the "noapic" and "nolapic" options that i used to run the Ubuntu Live CD but still not luck.
soooo this led me to just deciding to buy Vista sometime very soon. But meanwhile i've been looking around the web and I've seen that RAM issues could also cause booting to fail, and since i have problems booting from the hdd with Ubuntu and not the Live CD i thought that this could be a problem....So what i did was i ran the Memtest that came with the Ubuntu Live CD and it reported 2048 error in test 7 does this mean that i have VERY faulty RAM? or is there a wrong setting on the BIOS? because i would think that if the RAM was faulty it would fail SOME of test 7 not all of it. Also if the RAM was faulty would i be able to run so many programs on Ubuntu Live CD with absolutely no problems and such a high speed? Also i have Kingston RAM, and i've read many many good reviews on Kingston stating that their RAM is rarely faulty. My specs are below. Any help is appreciated
