Hi to all,
Very interesting replies.
However, I do not yet know what machine I will be getting.
The things I would like to know are::--
1. ..Will it be possible to boot PCLinuxos, on a dvd? -Probably not.
2... If not, do you think I could boot a usb device and install from there? onto a usb drive? again probably not.
3... If not possible to boot a usb device or dvd, how could I install anything on the new machine? Unless the supplier will allow me to into the bios to see it it is able to disable the secure boot and UEFI?
??, again probably not.
4....I have not seen any machines of similar ilk to the my current, that has win7 on it, everything now has win8.
5... I am in OZ so I think that may be a problem!!!
Many thanks for your replies.
