The most crazy/difficult Ubuntu 10.10 / XP problem... who's up for the challenge? Answered
-Dell 8600 Inspiron Laptop
-40 GB HD
-Dual Boots Ubuntu 10.10/Windows XP
Ubuntu Partition = 10 GB, Windows = 30 GB
Heres the problem:
XP has started to get chronic BSODs. Its bad. And its slow. On the flip side, Ubuntu is the opposite.
Heres what I want to do:
1.) Delete XP and convert the HD to an Ubuntu only drive.... How do I repartition it/do this at all?
2.) HOWEVER, I have some expensive programs on the XP partition that I would like to save... such as the entire adobe suite, the entire office suite, etc... How would I transfer these programs to the Ubuntu partition? I can't reinstall them because I don't have the disks... they have to be transfered some how.
3.) AND I have several programs that won't install on XP because it gets the BSOD's before it finishes installing them.... how can I install these on Ubuntu? I have heard some stuff about Wine 1.2, but I haven't looked into it too much. I want an opinion first...
Any advice, comments, words of wisdom, etc would be appreciated....
