8 – HP Mini 210-2100: Installation of Linux Ubuntu 11.04

Hehe, I couldn’t resist to install and test the latest version of Ubuntu on this netbook. Ubuntu is my new game these last days and I hope to publish shortly some GPU tools ;)

I downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 and created a bootable USB key (the procedure is described on Ubuntu download page).

You can access to the HP Mini 210 boot menu by pressing the ESC key a the startup. Then you can select the USB drive as first boot device.

The installation of Ubuntu 11.04 worked like a charm:

All important devices have been correctly detected and I could browse the Net with Firefox in no time. Great!

One cool things with Ubuntu is the virtual desktops management: you have four virtual desktops and thanks to a simple key combination, you can quickly switch between desktops. This feature is particularly enjoyable with a 1366×768 LED monitor…
