Questions about Grub, UEFI,the liveCD and the installer
My computer's DVD-reading capabilities are busted, but it can boot from CD just fine. Is it possible to create a Linux Mint installer that can fit into 700MB?

I found a LM 13 Mate cd size iso on the forums here and installed it to an old laptop with the same problem, adding in the extra packages post install, works great. So it can and has been done.
If I find the link I'll post it.

You can also burn the plop boot manager to the CD and use that to boot from the USB.
