A. INSTALLING UBUNTU FROM A USB FLASH DRIVE

Appendix A. INSTALLING UBUNTU FROM A USB FLASH DRIVE

image with no caption

If you have a netbook or some other computer that doesn't come with a CD drive, don't worry: You can install Ubuntu using a USB flash drive. Booting from a USB drive can be a little more involved than simply booting from a CD or using Wubi, but once the installer is up and running, the installation process is identical. I'm going to assume that you're using Windows for the rest of this appendix, but it's possible to create a USB install disk with other operating systems too; see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick/ for instructions.

Note

Some older computers don't have the ability to boot from USB disks. If this is the case, you won't be able to use this method to install Ubuntu. Other alternative installation methods are available, such as downloading Wubi directly; see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/ for a list of options.
