View Full Version : [ubuntu] 12:04 Is it possible to create a USB Install Key from the Alternate Install CD?

June 14th, 2012, 12:01 AM
I'm having dreadful problems trying to install from a 12.04 Stander USB key to my partner's Samsung n150 netbook (nothing happening except it seems to have totally corrupted the HDD, inc the Wins recovery partition) and I can't launch GParted reliably or get further. Different symptoms every time).

I though I'd like to try from the Alternate, as when I was trying to install 12.04 on my own laptop, I couldn't but it went fine with the Alternate CD.

Is it possible to create an Alternate Instal USB key, and if so how, I didn't find it on searches.

I imagine you can do it with unetbootin, though I've not tried.

I'll try that, thanks.
