    You can put your install disk (iso) in your CD drive straight away after installing your new SSD disk. Assuming you've connected both cables (power and data) correctly to your new disk, the installation program can use it.

    Don't understand ... a new SSD will be blank, so there will be no way to "boot" it. You need to boot from installation media with the SSD already connected and powered. Then, just install to the SSD.
    Ubuntu 16.10 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.

    I have 2 of these on 2 different laptops. in My Toshiba laptops I used the mechanical hard drive bracket with SSD and it fits perfectly in the slot. If you don't have a bracket then you can buy one and use. You should not let the SSD dangling, it might damage the pins.

    Yes and no. Ubuntu upgraded the libudev library in 13.04 from libudev0 to libudev1, and at the time, Google had not upgraded Chrome to accept libudev1 as a dependency instead of libudev0. The workaround was to install libudev0 alongside libudev1 before installing Chrome.

    Google may have fixed this issue already, but if they didn't there are very painless, straightforward instructions for the workaround at http://www.omgchrome.com/install-goo...-ubuntu-13-10/.
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!
