View Full Version : Lubuntu 14.04 32 bit: how to install from CD

January 28th, 2015, 03:25 PM

I wonder to know how it is possible to install Lubuntu 14.04 32 bit from CD since the size of the iso is bigger than the capacity of CD. My old systems do not have any DVD drive and do not allow to boot from USB disk. So what can I do?

Did you tried to burn the iso?

CD-ROM capacities are normally expressed with binary prefixes, subtracting the space used for error correction data. A standard 120 mm, 700 MB CD-ROM can actually hold about 737 MB (703 MiB) of data with error correction (or 847 MB total).

Lubuntu (Intel x86) desktop CD (http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/14.10/release/lubuntu-14.10-desktop-i386.iso) iso size is presently 705 MB.
