How Do I Install Lindows 4 on SATA Drive?

Recommended Posts

I have Lindows 4 and can't seem to install it on my SATA Hard Disk. I have a Abit NFS7 v2.0 motherboard and can't find a driver for SATA so that my HD finds Lindows 4.

Lindows 4.0 has the 2.4.20 kernel. I bet you need a newer version. Lindows is not friendly when it comes to recompiling the kernel. Frankly, it is not an easy process for a newbie. It is not as easy as clicking in an "exe" file. I have tried various kernel re-compiles with varing results. Please let me ask (for support purposes), do you have a membership for Lindows, so you can access the support forums? They are very helpful on the member forums.

 

For a newbie, and if your Lindows was not purchased, you may want to try another distro with a newer kernel version percompiled.
