Good morning, Tobias.
I don't think there is a way to interrupt the boot unless you were to use command line (which I am not good with at all unless it is sudo). Your suggestion would probably work if you could figure out how to interrupt boot.
For your second question, yes. You can install Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu on an old laptop. Since you are new with Linux, you printable don't know about Lubuntu, which would be your best option for doing this. Ubuntu/Kubuntu are resource-hungry. For this reason, I do not recommend installing these on an old computer or laptop. Xubuntu will work, since XFCE is not resource-hungry. Allow me to introduce Lubuntu to you, to make things even more complicated. Lubuntu uses the LXDE desktop environment, which is extremely lightweight, and is not resource-hungry at all. Lubuntu is known for working on laptops/computers so old that Windows doesn't even work anymore on them. You can install Lubuntu alongside Windows ME, or completely erase the hard drive and install Lubuntu, allowing Lubuntu to take up the whole drive. I think I've made this email long enough for now. Sorry :) Thanks!
In Christ,Ryan

 ocelot?

what is difference lucid and ocelotbecausejanuary 2012 both are new.
what does mean: Hardy has no support but ocelot has supportis it likegates gives support win 7 but noch win 98?

              now ryan?
              

              
              

              
              

              
              the situation
              

              
              I put in
              live CD
              SuSe
              BSD
              Ocelot....
              

              
              the machine is starting and running text modus.
              ok
              then linux is changing to grafik mode
              then
              crash black screen
              

              
              or frozen.
              

              
              

              
              

              
              hardy=no problem
              ubuntu older than hardy also booting fine.
              

              
              why?
              I dont know.
              I suggest, hardy is checking vga before changing to
                grafik
              ocelot does not check it and crash.
              

              
              Can You understand this?

                       Good morning, Tobias. Very good questions
                        you have. I think I can answer the first
                        half-way, and I am sure I can answer your second
                        question. Do you get past the boot screen with
                        Oneiric and Lucid? In the boot screen (GRUB), to
                        boot into different operating systems (different
                        versions of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu/etc, Windows
                        or other OS), when inside GRUB, select between
                        the different operating systems by using the
                        down and up keys on the keyboard. Then, press
                        the enter/return key on the keyboard to boot the
                        selected operating system. Do you know this is a
                        VGA problem? If so, I have no clue how to solve
                        this, unless you install drivers for VGA. If you
                        install VGA driver software, you are installing
                        this inside the operating system, not GRUB.
                        Therefore, if this is a GRUB problem, the
                        problem will still persist with GRUB, even after
                        installing driver software.

                        

                        For your second question, this is a Kubuntu-only
                        support centre. Ubuntu questions should be asked
                        in Ubuntu
                              Forums or Ask Ubuntu.
                        I hope this helps!

                                          I guess there must be a way to
                                          see the EFI partition from
                                          inside Windows - sometimes
                                          called the 'system' or
                                          'hidden' partition. Not sure
                                          though, because first thing I
                                          do with a new computer is to
                                          erase Windows completely.

                                          

                                          However, on a EFI-system, when
                                          installing Linux you'll have
                                          to create an EFI partition
                                          (around 100 MB) anyway and put
                                          grub-efi on it. On my system
                                          that is sda2.  As far as I can
                                          tell there is no way of
                                          getting rid of this UEFI
                                          rigmarole and revert to the
                                          good, old BIOS.

    Good afternoon, I hope your day is going well. I usually will
    reply-all, if that is what you mean. This is because other people on
    the list can see my emails and if I say something wrong or
    incorrect, they can reply and correct it. I also do it just so
    everybody is in the loop on what is going on.

    

    If Oneiric (and newer) crash after trying to boot, and hardy (and
    older) boot fine, then it must be an internal error, or an error
    that is in the system when Oneiric/newer boots. It may very well be
    the VGA problem as you suggest. I have never experienced this, so I
    am able to give you information to the best of my abilities without
    being able to see what you are seeing, so if I don't solve the
    problem or figure out an answer, I am sorry. Does Persistent boot?
    Persistent is the newest stable version of Kubuntu. Thanks!
