Workshop - Dual Booting With Microsoft Windows And Linux (46)

Newsflash

Obituary - JEXI KEOWN

It is with great sadness and a real sense of loss that we learned that Jexi Keown passed away on Saturday afternoon, 28th January 2018.

Jexi became a member of SeniorNet Hutt City in February, 2004. Over the years she has attended or assisted with tutoring in most classes, often at short notice.

Jexi served on the committee from 2011 to 2017 and fulfilled the post of Student Coordinator with distinction. She was a very warm and a very real people person with a bubbly personality, a very friendly demeanour, always ready to welcome people, reassure them and put them at ease, always willing to help with whatever and in whatever way she could. She was a very dedicated and loyal member of SeniorNet, believing completely in our goals and mission.

Jexi will be sadly missed by committee, tutors and members but our lives are so much richer for having known her and sharing in so many things with her.

Objectives:


To see an installation of Linux along side an existing Windows installation, so either may be selected at boot up time.

Description:

I will be showing how Linux may be installed on a computer where Windows is already installed. This is an easy way for computer users to see if Linux could fulfil their requirements when Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft.
We will look at

  • Preparing the computer
  • Partitioning the hard drive
  • Installing the new Linux operating system
  • Booting to either operating system.

I will also have a desktop computer with Linux installed, as well as my laptop running Linux. See also the companion workshop on Linux for Beginners.

Prerequisites:

Basic computer skills are required. Bring a USB and receive a PDF presentation entitled “Linux Beginners Guide To Questions You Might Ask”.

Duration:

Two hours.
