View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade 11.10 thru USB/CD

October 15th, 2011, 06:32 AM

I have couple of computers running ubuntu 11.04, would like to upgrade to 11.10, not willing to download on individual machine and then upgrade. Is it a way to get downloaded once in CD/USB and upgrade using it.

Thanks for you help.

If you have downloaded it once and you do not have a cd.dvd drive in you other machines, you can use a usb stick, take a look at http://www.pendrivelinux.com/, then you can install on any machine that will boot from the USB stick

I want to upgrade the existing ubuntu, doesn't want to re-install it.

Do NOT upgrade Ubuntu. Upgrade will lead to problems. Install a fresh copy or stick with what you have.. That's my advice.

I did a fresh install for 11.10 and it's running fine for me, no problems so far..
