0710 DVD and 0704 cds Both Failed, Need help
« on: February 01, 2008, 06:57:15 pm »
First off, I wanted to try Linux MCE out on my Sony VAIO PCV-RX550 Desktop (1.5-GHz Pentium 4, 256 MB RAM, 60 GB hard drive).   Will it even be possible because its so old and slow, also will it be able to handle UII atleast?

Also i was thinking about buying a 500GB drive and just Dual Booting it and running it on the 500GB drive and leaving Windows XP on the 60GB drive. Then whenever I get or build a new pc i can just more it into my new rig.

Oh and a stupid question, The dvd wouldn't boot from bios, Was I supposed to exstract the iso file then burn the exstracted files on the dvd??

Any comments or suggestion?
