I hope that anyone reading this doesn't comment because they think I am being condescending towards Linux, or think that I am trying to take a shot in any way, shape, or form.

Re: I have a Dell and I wanna shoot myself in the face

sorry for all the separate posts, but I'm not as dumb as to boot on the wrong selection. for some unknown reason, regardless if it is Ubuntu or if its mint from several different sources it will not install to the HDD. it has to be something dumb I am doing (operator error), what you guys think?

Re: I have a Dell and I wanna shoot myself in the face
