6 Why ubuntu netbook remixnot in a normal cd or dvd format

Because most netbooks do not have optical drives.
The installation procedure (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UNR/Installation/Easy) as I understand it is to copy the .img file to a USB flash drive using ImageWriter, boot the netbook from the flash drive and use the installer to put Ubuntu to your SSD drive.

I've downloaded the remix image twice. Each time wrote the image on a USB stick, and a SD card respectively.

Both times I tried to install then the Remix into my netbook (MSI Uwind 100), but the install was unsuccessful.

The error message stated there was something wrong with a couple of installation files.

Next, I tested the SD card with the remix image using the utility ubuntu has in its initial screen, and it detected 2 errors in 2 files.

I repeated the test for the img installed in my usb stick. It yielded the same result.

Question: I downloaded this from the cannonical source. Where can I get an image without the 2 errors?

I want to do a dual installation into my netbook.

Alternatively, I would not mind leaving the remix in my SD card, as Ubuntu works fine in my netbook from there. However, I'm unable to update the system, or make permanent changes to the operating system. Thus, every time I boot from the SD card or the USB stick, I have to set up again my mobile broadband connection, download the codexes for playing music, and all that.

Question 2: Is there a way to install the remix into my SD card or USB stick in such way that I'm able to update it and keep the updates there?
