I followed the instructions at to prepare some USB sticks for the purpose of sanitizing Dootronics. After downloading the two files "parted_magic_clonezilla_2012_10.iso" and "parted_magic_clonezilla_2013_08.iso" I "burned" the images (successful) to the sticks with two different programs: "Disks" and "Startup Disk Creator". All 4...

Hello, I have been reviewing the material you facilitate and I find very helpful for example the "Dootrip Brochure" for example at the time ato create some publicity that could provide some dootravleres in our Hubs. [] There is one thing though that I would suggest to change and it is that on it, it is requested to reach out for the...

My nephew Bernat has been helping me this afternoon repairing one laptop ... so this is really his idea. He asked if we knew about Chalet OS, a new linux distribution related to Google, with an Interface that emulates Windows. I don't enven have an opinion on wheather this is a good thing or not. Have you heard about it? What do you think about it? Thanks

Hello, I have a couple of ACER ASPIRE ONE to be cleaned. They come with a 8GB HDD (I suppose it's an SSD). I have installed Lubuntu on them but I can't get the OS running properly. Has anyone got stuck on the same problem before? Thanks in advance! Paz

I'm in the process of sanitizing several donated laptops. One of the laptops I've received (Toshiba NB255 netbook) doesn't have a CD drive. Last time this occurred, I was able to boot Lubuntu from a USB drive which I still have. I've reorganized the boot menu for the computer to boot from the USB first, but I'm getting the message "Exiting PXE ROM" and then it starts Windows normally. What...

Hi All, I have an old 2001-era IBM ThinkPad A22m that was donated to my hub. I was skeptical that it could be used at all (800 MHz CPU, 256MB installed memory), but thought I would give it a try. When I turn it on, it doesn't even boot up. I get the a black screen with the following message: "ERROR 0271: Check date and time settings Press to Setup" I am able to access BIOS and...
