The display seems to be "incompatible"
When you try install XP, it ends up in
4-color vga mode. The hardware seems
to be incompatible with existing software.
Yes, you can install the windows drivers
from the DELL website to fix windows,
but what about stuff that isn't windows?
Been a while, but I remember giving up
on a linux installation.
IN particular, I'm trying to run the Acronis
rescue disk to restore a backup. Acronis works
fine from windows to backup, but I need to boot
the rescue disk to restore it.
The display is unusable and I can't figger
out how to make it work well enough to get
the restore done.
Yes, I can reinstall windows, reinstall acronis,
and do the restore from inside windows. I'd rather
not do that.
