USB or DVD Install Faster

Post by borgward »

From starting w/download which is the fastest way to install Mint to a HDD or SSD? Why do you need a 16 GB stick when you need less than a 4.7 GB DVD. That's assuming you are only using the stick to install with.

No need for 16GB stick...but since all I have are 16GB, that's what I use. Only use a DVD if computer won't boot USB for some reason.
