View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.04 installation from USB Boot

May 3rd, 2008, 06:00 AM

I'm in a bit of a pickle. i'm unable to use my CD drive, so I can't install Ubuntu using the Live CD method onto my laptop. I do however, have access to a USB and can boot from it. My problem is I don't know what I need to change with my USB, and what files to copy onto it. I want 8.04 onto my laptop, and I'm using currently running an x86 version of XP. I don't want to dual boot, so I want to reformat. Also, I'm not too good with the whole programming lingo, so I would appreciate it if you're sort of specific. I hope I've given enough information that makes sense.

Cheers. :)
