I bought a notebook with installed SLED11, but with it I got only repair
DVD which destroys everything if I make changes to partitions. Is it
possible to get the installation dvd?

http://download.novell.com/ should have it and I would assume it's the same.

Good luck.

It's certainly worth downloading the DVD from there, but I think some
HP restore DVDs contain drivers for hardware that is new enough that it
isn't supported in SLED 11 SP1. I think there was mention of this on the
forum a while back but I can't find it just now. Someone who works for
HP does or did post here so maybe they can chime in.

You have all the files you care about backed up anyway, right? (If not
copy the contents of your home directory to an external disk that's
formatted with ext3 or ext4 or some other *nix friendly filesystem
before you do anything. Navigate in to /home and then copy the whole
directory, that ensures you get 'hidden' files and directories which
have names starting with .)

If it is a HP laptop, please send me a private message (I need your
exact model)

Drivers for SLED are usually available from HP official site. As a rule
there are drivers for touchpad, video card, network device. The only HP
program which is not available for download is hp-toolbox - a program
to configure HP devices. Though I never used it and was able to
configure HP printer with standard Linux program I'm used to.
So actually it'll be almost the same and I doubt you'll miss something.

Hi
The HP tools are part of the distribution and get installed by default
these days....

I am in this awful situation. Hard drive failed, had to be replaced. This link really helped!
