    another I don't get how to boot a new system from a usb drive..thread

    gigabyte aorus..whatever B450 elite..with amd ryzen 5 2600

    1. i had it boot up in ubuntu LTS 32 bit with old drive..upgraded to vers 18 ....
    bios is F51...
    everything running great!
    wifi and everything
    bottom line: system is good.

    2. removed old HD and replaced with new HD blank 1T ssd.

    3. have a 2.0 usb thumb drive downloaded with just the iso file for ubuntu 64 vers 20

    4. bios has been set too boot from usb.

    I think everything is good.

    Q1: what am I missing?

    Q2: Do I need more files on my usb besides just the .iso file??

    everything I read is not step by step with real links.
    it's like no one proof reads what they write and thinks about how truly useful it is!!

    if i figure this out on my own, i will document it properly.
    that's probably how it will go..as par usual.

    usually i say thanks in advance,,but not today.



    I went to the ubuntu site that i thought supposedly made a bootable usb!!

    shurur9; Hello -

    Check that in your firmware (bios) that AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) is enabled. Sometimes it can be a challenge to set up this option - but is required for an SSD. It took me some time to learn how to do so for my old Phoenix bios system.

    And this thread now better in "support" rather than as a chat item.

    hope this helps

    Happy ubuntu'n !

    this is all well and good..but where to start??
    i have another DT running ubuntu.

    i will do what i usually do and look at other posts.

    I still don't get whether having just an iso file on a usb stick is all i need!!

    I had questions!!!

    Re: another I don't get how to boot a new system from a usb drive..thread

    is there another forum for ubuntu out there?
    something with less chat and more help?

    I maybe should just go back to window huh??

    I can't believe how illogically this forum is set up!!

    you would think that technical discussion and help would be at the forground of the site would be at the top.
    it looks mainly like a chat site!!
