Hello. I have been here before, and I was wondering if you can install Linux Mint 15 on a USB flash drive. Not putting the .ISO on and installing to your PC HDD, actually putting it on the flash drive so you can take all your files, settings, e.t.c everywhere you go, and, like me, not having to worry about your hard drive. And if I can, what is the ideal size drive for Mint?
Hello. I am new to Linux and I would like to download a version of Ubuntu or Mint onto a 4 GB flash drive and then install the OS onto a laptop computer. The computer I have has no internal hard drive which is why I want to run the operating system from the flash drive itself.
How do I perform this task? Also, what is the distribution best for doing this?
Having been a Ubuntu user for a while, I switched to Mint 13 recently. All was well until I had to buy a new PC which had Windows 7 - 64bit installed.
It hasn't taken me long to realise how much I dislike it. So I thought I would dual boot using Mint 14 along side Windows 7. I used the Mint 14- 64 bit iso disc and got as far as the Linux Mint desktop. Everything worked great from the CD.
I installed in my Slackware 13.1 with generic kernel 126.96.36.199-smp VirtualBox packages taken from SlackBuilds.org (acpica, virtualbox-ose and virtualbox-kernel). Then for testing purposes I installed in VirtualBox Windows XP using CD-ROM drive connected to USB port. Its a lot of fun to see Windows as an application in Linux!
I would like to install Mint or Ubuntu alongside windows
I have three drives , there are three Drives C,D,E. i tried to install LinuxMint using the live DVD in E drive problem is linux is not detecting the installed version of windows , it is showing all as single unallocated HD. so if i proceed with that i would loose all my data.
