Questions about Dual Booting
« on: June 24, 2010, 07:43:40 pm »
When Duall booting, do you have to load Linux from through the system, or can you load the system OS by having Linux as the starting OS?

When using the dual-boot method, it is literally 'dual boot' in that when you boot the Dingoo, you choose either to native system or linux. You do not go into one first then the other second.

And if you are in one and wish to go to the other, you have to reboot the Dingoo.

You can make Dingux the default OS using this : http://clogging.web.fc2.com/dingoo/

In general, there is no choice screen, it will go directly to default OS unless you press select on the first screen...

It is neither. A Dingux splash screen comes up and the OS which boots is determined by pressing the Select button. There are two dualboot versions, the only difference is the 'default'. For Native default, if you do nothing when you see the splash screen, you go to the Native OS; if you press Select then you get Dingux.

For Dingux default, if you do nothing you get dingux, and if you press Select you get the native OS.

And yes, you have to do this every time you reboot.
