I’ve got two PCs, both Dell computers and both running Vista – a most importantly both running well. But I still want to be able to use linux. So, what to do? Virtual machines’ Partitions’ A live USB?
I decided to go with a Live USB to minimize disruption to my existing systems, and to try it out.
What I did:
- Loaded Vista, plugged in my flash drive and formatted it with FAT32.
- Downloaded the Kubuntu Live CD, wrote the iso to disc, loaded that.
apt-get install usb-creatorin the terminal.
usb-creator, added 4GB of my 16GB drive for persistance, and created the Live USB.
- It didn’t work, so I ran
test-diskand fixed the MBR.
- Booted Kubuntu. All was well.
