I've got an legacy Notebook (Toshiba Satellite 1110). I would like to install Lubuntu 14.04 .
Unfortunately I was not able to boot from USB. The device is over 10 years old and has only got USB 1.x . I already updated the BIOS to the latest version for this device (PhoenixBIOS 1.5 from 2007 or 2008), but I still can't boot from USB.
Any hints on USB boot are welcome.
I am able to boot from CD / DVD and got a disk with Xubuntu 09.10 . From there I have access the the USB drive with the image I want to install.
- When I boot from CD to the Xubuntu desktop, how can I start the installation of the image on the USB drive?
- Does this cause problems because I bootet with an older linux version (Xubuntu 09.10) but trying to install a later one from which I did not boot?
- Or can I make use of the live-CD boot menu / boot commands to boot the USB drive from there?
- Or should I install grub and make it boot from USB drive?
