I have already tried everything with the GrooveXR.
Actually, you can install any system, only then will your instrument work like any PC.
I do not think that you can then use your switches and slides as it should be.
You need the basic structure of your instrument and the library as it should your instrument.
I already have the KDE version istalliert it works, but only with the onboard sound card, since everything else is running on an encryption, at least it is the same with the GrooveXR.
You can restore your instrument only with the associated files.
The original bootstick with the correct OS version and the directories of your instrument, which you have to overwrite after installation.
After that it should work again.
If you have not made a copy of your HD, you should not format yet.
On your HD I at least the basic structure and the Lybrarys you need to restore.
You have to copy and save everything beforehand.
