How do I install Ubuntu from an USB drive / create a live USB-stick?
I own a little Acer Aspire One with no CD drive (it's a 10' notebook and was given it with operating system / AVG failure and wont boot windows). So I thought I'd put Linux on it. I have a CD with i386 - 32bit (as it is compatible with MOST things) which I've had running on a HP notebook of a friend's. I have created an ISO with IMGburn and created a boot-able thumb drive (4 GB Imation) with Rufus.
When I boot from USB, I am asked for a keyboard layout - no worries and then I get a command prompt (FeeDOS DISPLAY version 0.013). Once I managed to get a very basic help screen, that got me nowhere of use.
The only thing I can get it to do is tell it a:>drive which it chucks a hissy fit as this is not the USB drive and it is stuck at that. Wondering what I've got wrong?
I should add that I've done this using the image of Ubuntu 12.04 i386 Live CD if any of this makes a difference. Any help would be much appreciated.
