Ok so Im in a bit of a pickle here.
I have a 6 year old laptop which through the years lost a cd drive and doesnt have any options to boot using a usb stick.
I somehow managed to install ubuntu using pxe boot taking the ubuntu distro from us.archive.ubuntu.com.
When I start my system I see that there is no UI available and when I do a uname I get the following:
Linux machinename 2.6.31-23-generic #75-Ubuntu SMP
I want to install Ubuntu with Gnome on my machine, and I have a .iso image of Ubuntu 10.04.
Is there a way to install another Ubuntu version (fresh install on a partition would also work) from within Ubuntu using .iso image?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
PS: Much better for me would be to install the Ubuntu netbook version or its better to install a simple Ubuntu desktop version?
