Install from ISO image on disk?

Postby pgmer6809 on Fri Feb 15, 2013 9:09 pm

My computer has trouble booting from the DVD drive.
Is there some way to boot an ISO image? This would allow me to install without burning a DVD.

You could have asked both questions in one thread. That way it doesn't clutter up the forums. See my reply in your other post.

some ways

1. use plop
2. use usb flash or usb drive
3. use unetbootin, install iso with Hard Disk (Not the usual usb), then reboot, select unetbootin or something related to that iso.
4. install the DVD size iso on another computer that support DVD, then, clone to USB drive, copy from clone, paste to the computer that cannot handle DVD, then install boot loader.
