Having problems with your Acer Veriton 5100 PC Desktop ?

I have been given a acer veriton 5100 it has a program called ubuntu it does not have windows program and will not auto run disks that i insert can you give advise


Answers :

"Ubuntu" is a Linux operating system, not a Windows operating system. It will not run any windows programs or autoplay any windows CD's unless you have an "emulator" or hypervisor installed, which is not by default.\015\012Here is a link to the Ubuntu website that you can browse to find out more information on that Operating System - http://www.ubuntu.org \015\012There you can research the running of a Windows emulator called "WINE" (much to detailed to get into here). Or you can purchase a 3rd party hypervisor, such as VMware Workstation, that will run a virtualized copy of a Windows operating system (such as XP) inside Ubuntu.\015\012
\015\012Long story short - you cannot use your Windows disks in this laptop with Ubuntu operating system installed without a add-on emulator or program.\015\012
\015\012Good luck!
