VMWare, Ubuntu and Vista

January 13, 2008 at 9:31 pm | Posted in Linux, Windows | Leave a comment

Recently just bought a HP Pavilion DV2000 series laptop running Vista Home Premium and would like to install the newest Ubuntu 7.10 on it. I do not like dual boot because you need to restart your machine in order to get into one system; so I came up with a thought of virtual machine on Vista. 

The laptop has 2.2GHz of Dual 2 Core processor and 2GB of RAM; therefore, the machine should have enough power to  run virtual Ubuntu OS on top of Vista. The installation was going very smoothly… sound card, graphic card and wireless are working perfectly; however, found out neither the touchpad nor the external USB mouse was functioning properly… The cursor could only move on the top half of the screen, not the bottom half.

Googling and checking Ubuntu forum, cant find a single clue for this problem.Please share yours if you have any idea to fix this…
