Question

Post by changturkey » Mon May 03, 2010 4:10 pm

I know the RC release for LM9 is nearing, so my question is: will I be able to install the distro to a usb key? The cd/dvd drive in my laptop is no longer functioning correctly so I have to use a usb key to install windows/linux etc. Will I be able to use unetbootin or?

I can't see any reason why not :D you should be able to put the contents of the iso onto a usb key like you usually would :?:

Agreed, unetbootin is my preferred method of testing and installation and has worked for me through versions 7, and 8 on standard and also fluxbox CE.
