I'd like to fully install Ubuntu 12.10 onto a 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive, not create a live USB but to treat the flash drive as an external hard drive. I've read it's possible and I know my computer can boot from it. However, it doesn't work when I try. I've booted a Live USB from another flash drive and installed Ubuntu onto the 16GB one.
I'm trying to boot Xubuntu from USB Flash Drive on my old laptop Fujitsu-Siemens but it shows "Missing Operating system. Operating System not found". Although the Flash Drive works on my current laptop.
Can I make DOS USB Flash Drive with (x)Ubuntu Live CD on it?
I tried various windows programs to make a bootable USB, and Xubuntu Startup-disk without success.
I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my Acer TravelMate 4001LMi laptop (at present running Ubuntu 10.04). Trouble is, it will not even begin to boot from the live cd. It just goes straight to the grub screen. I have tried with various other live cd versions, even the old 10.04 one, same result. I tried F12 for boot options and selected the cd drive, same result.
Hi everyone I have been trying to get the ubuntu cd to boot for the past 3days. I tried every solution using integrated graphics, redownloading etc. I also tried linux mint and that wont boot at all either. But Fedora and sabayon boot like no problem on my desktop.
I am trying to install Ubuntu 64-bit alongside Windows 8 32-bit. I have burned multiple discs with Ubuntu 64-bit and 32-bit and I mounted the .iso file to a USB flash drive. I went into bios and changed the boot preference to CD/DVD when I was attempting to boot from the DVDs and removable drive when I was attempting to boot from the flash drive.
I am trying to make a liveboot usb of Linux Mint. I used the startup disk creator and it made an additional (unmountable) filesystem on my hard drive (Linux Mint MATE 64-bit) anyone know what it is and what it's for? I am trying to make a live boot, similar to a live boot CD but on a USB so it is read/write, not just read.
So this is a pretty general question, and I think I know how it works, it's just I want to check to make sure I got it right.
I have this laptop that I use the most, and I decided to run Ubuntu on it too so I can constantly practice using Ubuntu. The thing is, I don't think I want to install Ubuntu (as a dual boot) alongside Windows, so I'm going the Live CD route.
