    Replacing Ubuntu with Xubuntu

    I have on my computer WinXp and tried to install Lubuntu .
    Now it says it is Ubuntu. I am trying next to install Xubuntu.

    The present Ubuntu(Lubuntu) is defective but I can log into it.

    When booting the computer and the BIOS-settings adjusted accordingly, the system however goes where I can choose either windows or Ubuntu. Not to USB-flash.

    As the USB flash does not start installing Xubuntu, I am wondering if I can use some command in Ubuntu to start installation from the stick?

    Any comments as to what I shöuld take into consideration?

    That sounds to me as though your BIOS settings are wrong, or maybe your flash stick is faulty. I say this because I think the BIOS should offer you a choice of boot from hard disk or flash stick. The choice between Windows and Ubuntu is on the hard disk, not in the BIOS. If you see a choice of Windows or Ubuntu, then the BIOS has already chosen to boot from the hard disk - either because of its configuration, or because it doesn't think the stick is bootable.

    So, I suppose it is not possible to start installing from Ubuntu?

    Ihave to check the bios settings again.

    What is the command in Ubuntu to reboot?

    I don't think so.

    You could use "sudo init 6", or press Ctrl-Alt-F1 (gets you a tty console) then Ctrl-Alt-Delete. ALso, there must be a logoff option in the Ubuntu screen somewhere, that offers a reboot choice.
