This question already has an answer here:
I'm new to Ubuntu and Linux in general.
I'm currently out of town and the dorm I am living in has terrible internet connection. It won't be another 2-3 weeks before I can go home and have proper internet connection.
So my question is whether or not I can install Ubuntu 13.10 in my laptop without the internet and then do the updates once I go home?
Also, I'm attempting to do a dual boot with my Lenovo G505s which was pre-installed with Windows 8. Hopefully I can pull this off.
I already did the necessary things (I think and hope so) prior to installation:
- Disable secure boot
- Enable legacy and boot UEFI first
- Create partition
- Put installer in my pen drive
As I am quite new to this, any advice would be of great help. Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I tried yesterday. The installation asked me to connect to the internet, so I used my crappy dorm internet. When it reached the downloading/installtion of Ubuntu One, it just stopped and went on forever. So I had to stop it.
