    Installation of Lubuntu without disc

    Hello, my PC currently has no OS installed therefore I could not download a copy of lubuntu. I asked a friend to download me a copy and burn it to CD and post it to me. When i received the copy I try to install it which failed. Then i booted the "Try Lubuntu" which worked where I noticed I could install it from there. I tried this but again it failed.

    Then I used the check disc for defects option upon boot and found that there is an error.

    My query is - Can i download the lubuntu ISO using the "Try Lubuntu" feature, and then install it without having to burn it to disc due to the fact I do not have a CD-RW drive?

    Thanks in advance Marcus.

    I can't think of any way to download and then install directly. The nearest I can think of is to download your own copy of the ISO (to memory) and then use the startup disk creator to create a bootable memory stick.

    It is a bit advanced.

    You could create a 1 or 2GB partition with gparted from liveCD, install grub2 to the drive and then use this procedure:

    This will boot an ISO from a hard drive.

    Examples - you may copy & edit for your path & ISO version

    Change to make grub in MBR boot from a dedicated grub only partition on drive., but then add ISO file(s) as above. You also have to manually create the grub.cfg file:
