|My SONY XP MEDIA desk top was corrupted and after talking to SONY and MICROSOFT there is NO way to save my 5 years of files.|
I posted a message last night and everyone said to download LINUX and openSUSE.
Once I do that I can load it on my desktop and create a boot disk?
When I try to download the Linux software but when it gets to the last 10% the software fail downloads.
I have done this at three locations.
Can someone confirm which file I am to download??
Maybe I am doing something wrong.
here is another USA site from Duke
I am also wanting to download openSUSE
I went to the following site.
When I downloaded the file it seamed very small 51.2KB?
My system is a 32bit Sony VAIO
Can someone advise which to select to set up a DVD disk
Download openSUSE 11.1
1. Select the Type of Computer
32 Bit PC x86: Computers with e.g. AMD® Sempron or Intel® Celeron™, almost all desktop computers dating 2004 or earlier. This version also runs on 64bit PCs.
64 Bit PC
x86-64: Most new computers with e.g. AMD®: Opteron™, Turion™ 64, Athlon™ 64, or Intel®: Core™2, Pentium® 4 6xx, Pentium® D CPUs
ppc: e.g. Apple® Computers before 2006 with non-Intel® CPU, IBM® eSeries™, IBM® pSeries™
2. Choose an Installation Medium
Network (Experienced Users only)
3. Choose a Download Method
Standard (ftp or http)
All I want to do is secure my files that are in my dead computer and once I am able to do this, I can use the SONY System restore disks to bring it back to a Newly working state.
Or will I like this other format and want to keep it?
If you would like to offer assistance on this very frustrating task, please do not hesitate to write.
I can email or call you from skype to anywhere in the world.
Thanks to all, your the best!
