Default 10v: 8.04 NBR upgradable or clean install? - 05-24-2009, 09:35 AM

hi there

i've ordered my mini 10v (with 120gb hdd) and was wondering if the NBR is upgradable to 9.04?
or is it recommended to make a clean/fresh install of ubuntu?
if yes: how do i format the hdd?

cheers and thanks in advance

You'll need to do a fresh install if you want 9.04. Here are some good instructions: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/FromImgFiles

Keep in mind that Ubuntu 9.04 does not run well on some of the Dell Mini models, so check these forums for other users' experience before making the leap. (I am a Mini 9 user so I can't help you there.)
