Hello out there!
I have a mate who want to try out Ubuntu so he gave me an old
ACER travelmate 2301LM and asked me to pour it in there. I started
using the ordinary GUI installation but it got stock after a while.
Then I tried the alternate textbased one. It got stock also but I
could see the problem being the detection of the harddisk. I ripped
it out and tried to find out what kind it was and the label gave this
HDA PN: 100314974
It also had the marking: Ultra ATA
On the net the native harddisk used in this laptop is refered to as
"Parallel ATA" or "pATA" (never heard of it before)
I think the harddisk is OK (but I'm not 100%).
Does anyone have experience in stuffing Ubuntu into one of them
or does anyone know some usefull info ?... please...
