Intro: Installing Linux From USB
Linux is well known for its features and safeness. Most people would use Linux as their second OS for banking,online shopping and many more! Now I would be installing Slacko Puppy 5.7 from a pendrive.
Step 1: Items Required!
Items needed includes:
Any computer that has a BIOS that can run a OS from a pendrive. (most can do)
A Pendrive ( Size depends on you. I suggest a 8GB for daily use.)
Software (See next step)
Step 2: Software Time! (Step 1)
Ok, so the software required is just available at this website:
Just go to the website, and you can see two links on the page.Click the second one,scroll down the page and you will see an eye catching blue icon to download. Click it, let download.
Once done, double click and the application will start.
Step 3: Software! ( Step 2)
When the application starts, it will prompt you to view the licence agreement. Skip.
Once you are ready click next and it will bring you to the screen to choose which Linux distribution you want.
In this case, you can choose yours that you downloaded or select the listed ones. In this case, I chose Puppy Linux as the OS i want to use.(The installer version is 5.4, although current one is 5.7 (downloaded that) Then,if you are downloading from the installer, they will prompt you to start. Just wait as the download varies with different OS. Mine, took less than 1 hour.Once downloaded, you must select the file, plug your drive in,and follow the steps shown. Once done, they will prompt you again in case you picked the wrong drive. Once done, safety eject the drive and plug into the target.
Step 4: Testing It Out and Putting It All Together
Explanation is minimal here, plug your flash drive in the target. I wanted an extension, so the drive could be inside the case.
Step 5: Enjoy!
If all goes well and you pass the checking of the files, the welcome screen will pop up and tell you to make you personal touches to the OS. At this point, you are good to go.
If you have any questions or recommendations just add it in the comments! Cheerio.
