Well, I give up.

I have tried for months and invested dozens of hours to get a machine that runs qubes and it hasn't happened.

So would somebody be willing to go into say pb tech with different live puppy's on  stick (or DVD) and finding what computers run it.

Puppy was the distro I was wanting to run on my brand new computer I bought last year. I have been told that it is hard to find a new computer that won't rtun puppy. My new computer didn't. Hopefully it is just a freak.

So if you are prepared to do that, could you then let me know at least two of those computers that should be able to run qubes according to the hardware specifications at the qubes website.

If nobody is prepared to do that it is more than fine. I will just buy a computer that runs a windows legacy os.


 Hi,

Why do you need to run puppy so much? If its a new computer best to run a bigger distro. What's the computer? I'm guessing Intel 64bit but correct me otherwise. You should be able to download Debian and create a live usb, and install. Seems a waste to buy a new computer when you already have a new computer. What's the computer running currently? If its windows10 no point in switching to 7, best to keep win10 or switch to Linux.

If you can go to pbtech why can't you go to te ata on a Monday or Friday and get Ian to help? 

Cheers,

William
