Oh my word, the excitement is literally too much for me, I’ve already had to have a beer just to calm down. After almost two full days of trying, Linux has finally booted. It turns out, the problems were with the cheap CDs I was burning it onto. Some good old TDKs burned at 8x and it worked like a charm.
I was running Linux from a CD (new window), able to view my hard drive, connect to the internet (if I’d had an enthernet cable long enough!) and all sorts of other exciting things. Literally as I type this post, I am in the process of backing up all my data in preparation for the migration to Linux on my primary hard drive. Bring it on, the revolution will not be Microsized… 🙂
