Re: Problem to instal linux in my G580 Laptop.

Which distribution of Linux?


Do you remember it installing GRUB to the Master Boot Record?  If it does not, your computer will either not boot properly or will boot into Windows and you won't have the option of selecting Windows or Linux.


If you leave the installation media in place (CD inserted or USB drive connected), will it boot to a screen that lets you pick Linux or Windows?
