So I had a little fiddle and disabled the APIC. What is the APIC and how will disabling that affect my computer??
so finally I start installing it, and begin to get excited. Now however when it got to the partitioning part I got stuck (I guessing I am really showing my inexperience here, but you gotta learn some how I guess). I tried to partition it manually as I still want the dual boot option. However here is where my computing knowledge ends. I have no idea what to do now. It requires me to select a 'root' drive or something before I continue. Any pointers?
BTW, After quiting set up I was able to use Ubuntu - and to be honest, I don't know what all the fuss is about, the whole thing seems to set out pretty logically and easy to use - I managed to navigate round well enough.
