    yes it has. and i know you can copy the ubuntu in a disc and install it from there. but the thing is im afraid i will erase the windows system if i install like that. and when i try to upgrade/update ubuntu through synaptic package manager it always says the dependencies fail or something:(

    u have any solutions?

    thanks a lot!

    The safe solution is install inside of windows link text

    But is pretty shitty let the old version there, on hard disk space.

    Why you can not upgrade? have you tried burn a cd with the new version and upgrade running the old version?

    i just tried upgrade through synaptic , and it failed, i also tried through terminal, use the sudo get upgrade or something command. failed again. i havnt tried to use CD, i dont want to mess around with my pc lol so i thought it might be better if i find someone more professional to do it......:3

    @ladybugs iv no idea what u mean...but im sure if you are nice enough, there are always people willing to help you, whether to fix your laptop or give u a place to stay. being sarcastic doesnt get u anywhere.

    also im not asking help for free. so iv no idea whats the problem??

    its just a simple thread asking if there is someone who is good at ubuntu and might help me. and so many people question whats my real intention? that is the fucking real intention! -_-*
