install on laptop
Hello. I was given an HP pavilion5150. It had windose me on it but wasn't working real good. So I decided to play around for a while. I can't get a distro to load on it. I've tried a number of them. from puppy,(only in RAM) arch, to mint. The hard drive is inaccesable. The distro starts but then stops. My question is, is there a boot, recovery disc I could use to jump start this. Or would I have to take it in for repairs or new hard drive.
