Hi guys,

Im looking to convert my Windows XP media Centre laptop (HP COMPAQ PRESARIO C310EA) to a Linux Based OS like Ubuntu.

Can anyone Tell me of any reasons why I shouldnt and what driver problems i may have?!?

Some Compaqs store part of the BIOS on the Hard Drive. Wipe it and you may have problems!
Cant you just run it dual boot?
