Install from HD?

Postby aged hippy on Fri Jul 24, 2009 2:57 pm

I'm very impressed with the Gloria XFCE installation, but i've been using Kubuntu for some time now, and i feel more at home with the KDE desktop, but i have no DVD burner.

Is it possible to install Gloria KDE (to the HD) with UNetbootin? or would it be better to download the .iso and install from HD (following the instructions here: http://www.instantfundas.com/2007/08/in ... -from.html )

Thank You for that, lagagnon, :) the Ubuntu results must be the only ones Google never found for me. :(

I've downloaded the .iso twice, but the md5sum doesn't match - although both downloads have the same md5sum. :?:

Never mind, i'll try again tomorrow. :D

Thank You for the help, lagagnon, it took three tries, but it went like clockwork when i stopped trying to mount NTFS directories. :)

Of course, that could have been a coincidence... :D

I'm Highly Impressed so far. :)
