Dream Linux

USB loading here I come …

I'm on my way to work but had to have a go at this first. I can always catch the next bus.

It's a Debian Linux live start but on the desktop there looks to be a choice of install/boot-up options one of them is for the USB stick I never use these days.

Looks like I'm getting a life at last. More later.

  1. I just got my other PC from the repairers. They put 18 GB of data on my broken SAT drive onto a USB. They are still processing the rest of it. I was going to put the Linux OS on the rest of the drive and usae the stuff from that.Looks like I need another pen drive. They couldn't fix the computer and the owner of the shop started talking about "obsolete" motherboad, graphic card and RAM.They are only obsolete if I wanrt to spend 300 quid on a Microsoft OS. It's a pretty hot box for most linux offerings and for all the stuff I'll be looking at.Once I find my feet with it.In the meantime I can't find the USB stick. I found the DVD with Chrome on it though. That was in the optical drive. So maybe I will play with that next.

    I forgot about this post.

    I was trying to get a partition on my 2nd hand laptop recently but had to give up. The method defaulted by the magazine I got it from (Linux Format) kept giving me blank stares. I wrote about it on another blog, though I ma not unsure it was even on my own site here.

    I gave up on the one above. I think the fault was using two C drives. I was afraid to mess up the install so I took out my Windows hard drive and then reinserted it. But I gather Linux uses a different name not C, D or whatever but hda or sda etc.

    Of course what the BIOS called them afterwards is another thing and probably what happened to a few of my subsequent drives since trying the same fool thing with other drives.

    Any ideas how true that is. I recall a common boot message something along the lines of bootrams or inftrans something or others.
