Loosing the system

Posting the output of commands might be easier if you just copy and paste what is in Konsole here as code (the </> icon). Like this:

$ sudo fdisk -l
[sudo] password for ben79:

Note: The sudo command will ask for “[sudo] password for <your_user_name>:” that means it wants you to enter your administrator password. The administrator password is also called root or superuser (su).

Note-2: These commands only provide information. They do not do anything to your computer.

It is an l not a 1. It means simply list as in fdisk --list. If you wish to know more try the “help” option like this:

$ sudo fdisk --help


$ free --help

Post-edit: Most commands will have a --help option.

I can’t really read the part I need. But what I can read indicates you have plenty of storage space to install OM Lx 4.2. It looks like you have one hard drive with total available space of 31.3 GB. It also shows me you are using UEFI booting (Type=EFI System).

There is one more question. Do you have any other operating system on your computer? For instance to you also have Windows in addition to OM Lx 2014? From what I can see it looks like you have only OM Lx 2014.

yes, it is @ben79. but I haven’t other system installed in this computer.

OK, then we seem to have a computer that can comfortably work with OM Lx 4.2.

I need to say that I am guessing at your knowledge level. So please do not be offended if I “over explain”. If I don’t or the how to article don’t explain well enough then please do ask us to do a better job of explaining. This process makes us better able to help other users. And I learn things in the process myself. I am approaching this as if you or anyone reading this has never installed an operating system before. You should not hesitate to use a translator to translate to your language (Portuguese I think) if you need to for clarity.

We have this how to describing how to install any current version of OpenMandriva Lx:

How to Install OpenMandriva Lx 4.3

Also read this:

OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 Release Notes

I recommend reading both of those and asking questions until you have a good general idea of what is involved in installing a computer operating system.

I would also recommend you start with breaking this in to easier steps rather than trying to do it all at once the first time. So first just focus on doing the first three steps in the how to install article. When you get to step 3 “Start OpenMandriva Lx live mode”. At that point you will not have changed anything on your computer yet but you can look around inside of a running OM Lx 4.2 system and see what it is like.

Note: I know the how to is titled “How to Install OpenMandriva Lx 4.3” but the how to will work for any current version of OpenMandriva Lx.

@ben79, I’m ready to start the upgrade after download the OM Lx 4.2, the Rosa iso writer and burn the mirror in a USB disk. so, I will read that topics before, burn other oldie boot disk to prevent any troubles and I’ll back to you.
