    Re: Ubuntu os from scratch

    Okay, on the hard drive of the Windows machine you need two things:

    1. The Ubuntu ISO file you downloaded, and

    2. A copy of the UNetbootin program: Go to...

    http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

    ...and click the "Download (for Windows)" link.

    Reply back here when you are ready to proceed with the next step.

    Since all computers need a os to work, why dont they put a chip with a os when they make them?

    Well they do, sort of: it's called "firmware" and it's very important but also very limited in what it can do. However, let's not stray too far from the topic at hand.

    Now, plug the USB stick into the Windows machine. If Windows pops up an AutoPlay dialog asking what to do with the contents of the stick (e.g., "Import pictures and videos", "Open folder to view files", etc.) just close the dialog.

    Click the Windows "Start" button, then click "Computer". Verify that the USB stick appears under the section "Devices with Removable Storage".

    Okay so far?
