I think I'm coming down with whatever SO had/has. However, the over the counter stuff seems to be working. I hope so.

Gas prices here are crazy. The station near the library is $3.23 and the station at the entrance to my development is $3.45. Both prices are for regular. There is always a line at the station by the library.

Last thought- once you get used to looking at your drive from live-DVD using
the gparted utility, and you learn what size Win 7 is after defragging, then
you can better decide what partitions to make and what size. One partition
up at the 'top' of your drive can be a FAT32 type used for storage. Here you
can park the disk images you take of C:/ (Win7) and also put files that can
be read from both Win and Linux.

OK, 500GB is a pretty good size drive, no trouble to work with it. Your processor,
looks up as a 64 bit architecture, so use the 64 bit LM17 I sent you when working
on that box. The gold standard is always if the computer will find the disk and
boot into a live dvd session and find the internet using Firefox, the you should
do fine with LM17 on it.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Athlon%20II%20X2%20215%20-%20ADX215OCK22GQ.html

The first order of business is to learn how to boot into the BIOS or UEFI
environment on that box. It may or may not have the DVD drive in the boot order,
before the hard drive. We went through that on the laptop. It might just find
the disk and boot on it, try that first, but if not then you need to go find
that "boot order" or "boot devices" or whatever they call it in there. If you
can't get past that we could do the telephone thing again. There has to be a
way. Sometimes you just have to keep starting and restarting it but not letting
it start to load Win 7. You are looking for hints on that initial boot screen
where it might say 'press DEL to enter setup' or whatever. Sometimes you tap
F1 or F2 or some other key(s). It varies by model. How I often do it is I
assume it's DEL and i just keep tapping DEL as it starts to boot. If I see it
start to load Win7, I stab and hold the power button, power it off. Then try
again, maybe F1 or F2, All along I am watching that boot screen closely to
see if I can spot which is the magic key to get you into BIOS.

Once you can routinely get that box to boot into a Linux live DVD environment,
then you can look into defragging Win7, compacting that partition to make room
for Linux, and taking a 'disk image' snapshot of Win 7. THEN do your install...

No matter what operating system you end-up using, you still need to buy the hardware somewhere. Unless you can build your own computer.

Dell hires a Nationwide company to do their repair service. And this company just closed the repair ticket. At least that is was seems to have happened as we are no longer in that company's database.

Dell's repair service never showed up yesterday. Actually called them when they were late and was told someone would call back in 5 minutes. We are still waiting.
