    Netbook Install Question

    Hi.

    I want to make a persistent install of UNR on a USB that I can boot in my netbook. I think I understand what I need to do, but I just want to clarify.

    1. I need to download the UNR ISO.
    2. I use the start up disk creator (in desktop Ubuntu) to make the USB, this should allow me to boot from my netbook.
    3. Then I am done.

    My main worries is that I won.t be able to make a persistent drive from the statup disk creator. Are my concerns founded?

    Thanks.

    That's all you have to do. You should be fine.

    Your concerns are completely unfounded. I made a persistent USB drive and I plan to continue using it. I made it from the startup disk creator. You're good to go. Just make sure you allow it to store data in extra space.

    A lot depends on the flash drive. Some do great and others just refuse to cooperate.

    I used an external CD-ROM to install on my Netbook.

    If you have Windows on the Netbook already, then you can use unetbootin to install Ubuntu onto the Netbook
    Thank you for your contributions. "So long and thanks for the fish!"

    I've done it with many flashdrives, you should be fine. Just as long as the flashdrive's brand isn't "Toshaba" or something.
