Is there a REAL Dingux Install Guide?
« on: November 12, 2009, 02:33:44 am »
The only one I've been able to find is a "Complete Idiot's Guide" which sounds like it was written by a complete idiot.  Is there a BETTER, PROFESSIONAL step-by-step guide that actually tells you the correct information and is written by, say, a MATURE person who knows what they're talking about, rather than someone who had to learn English from a Dirty Hungarian Phrase Book? 

Particular care to the section on uninstalling ChinaChip drivers would be nice, since that's where the current guide has me stuck.  It says uninstall the China Chip drivers, so I do, but then the computer never prompts me to install the dual_boot_installer folder's drivers when I plug in the Dingoo in B+reset "mode".  If I plug in the Dingoo normally, then it just automatically reinstalls the China Chip drivers, and there's absolutely no way I can tell it not to, even when I consult the http://winhlp.com/node/199 page for directions. 

Much thanks for your PROMPT and courteous replies!

You mean like the guide in the Dingoonity Wiki?

It's best practice imo to have the Dingoo off, plug into USB let it boot, then hold B while reseting. Screen should be black/blank.

I installed after the idiots guide and had no problems in understanding it. I find your tone very rude and hope, when you found out what you are doing wrong, you will write us a guide, written by "a MATURE person who knows what they're talking about, rather than someone who had to learn English from a Dirty Hungarian Phrase Book".

I had no problems using the idiot's guide. Very clear and easy, for idiots.

I had a similar issue, but I'm not sure if my solution will be the same for you or not. But one of the problems I was running into was actually putting it in the correct USB mode. When I read "Hold B and reset", I used the physical button on the right, instead of the actual reset button that requires the paperclip. So make sure that's what you're doing. When you plug it in and see the USB icon on the screen, then you've done it incorrectly. If the unit appears to be off (while plugged in!!), then you have done it correctly.

As soon as I did that, it popped up with the correct unit (ignoring ChinaChip). Go to Device Manager, find the unit (AZ followed by some numbers), update drivers, and select the DualBoot folder.

If on Vista/Windows 7!!: After the DualBoot drivers are installed, you wont be able to use the drivers since they are unsigned. Restart your computer, and when it starts to boot up, hit F8. You'll be prompted with a DOS window asking you various options. Select the option that mentions something like "Driver Signing", or something to that effect. Should be easy to find, not to many options.

Hope this helps you.

I used the following on Vista and had no real issues. It's much better than the idiots guide imo.

NICE find!!

This oughta be stickied!  It is better than the idiot's guide.  And it's better, because it shows you how to do it, with XP...Vista, or 7.  The Idiot's Guide basically assumes XP.

+ karma to you for this find...I'm saving that page!

Ah haven't seen that guide for a while. Forgot about that page. Cheers.

I still think Joepie91's translated version of Ironic's guide is better for installing on XP. It's a bit more in depth and explains the process a little better. (especially for newbies who don't know how to install device drivers)
http://sven-slootweg.nl/a320/dualboot_en.html

This guide uses batch files so there is no input required on the user's behalf. No need to copy/paste or input anything. Just a few clicks of the mouse and you're done.

Kenope's guide is better presented though and is suitable for somebody who is more tech-savvy.
