Have a look on the article linked below the download that tells you how to verify the isos: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/how-to-verify If one of those images was tampered with you can prove it this way.

You are probably referring to the formal size limit for Ubuntu releases. On paper, the release ISOs may not be larger than 1 GB. But in reality, the last few releases did not observe that limit and were larger. The ISO image for the desktop edition of Ubuntu 16.04 is around 1.4 GB to 1.5 GB, so your number sounds about right. The ubuntu-16.04.1-desktop-amd64....

The Ubuntu Community Help Wiki has an article on creating a bootable ISO image from an installed system. It appears to use only command-line tools (no GUI). There are too many steps to list here, so I'll just include the link: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MakeALiveCD/DVD/BootableFlashFromHarddiskInstall

Don't upgrade using that method. Instead boot your normal system and run: sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get -f install reboot sudo do-release-upgrade You may need to run on a server sudo apt-get install update-manager-core.

I add SimpleBurn (http://simpleburn.tuxfamily.org/ ), a minimalistic free Linux application enabling you to make ISO file from DVD disc easily and quickly. Of course, you will have to install libdvdcss2 in your Linux if you want to extract media content from the copy-protected DVD discs. For more DVD/Blu-ray digitizing tools and knowledge, visit my site at: ...

I am trying to create a bootable usb to install windows10 in my friends computer but this unetbootin does not serve my purpose. The usb made bootable by unetbootin is not detected by windows. I found the solution here. For quick turnaround I paste the solution here sudo add-apt-repository ppa:colingille/freshlight sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ...

Assuming that image is named R2015b_glnxa64.iso, simply mount ISO: sudo mkdir -p /media/iso sudo mount -o ro,loop ./R2015b_glnxa64.iso /media/iso run the installation script: sudo /media/iso/install and finally unmount image: sudo umount /media/iso

Installations from ISO image and metapackage are no different, when metapackages are installed from server ISO and minimal CD images. Users who use an official ISO image and purge packages of existing flavour, then install packages of another flavour may see no difference as well. Therefore, the metapackages could provide same installation as the ISO images....

The "Startup Disk creator" application which comes with Ubuntu only supports Ubuntu / Linux ISOs, so it will not be able to write a Windows 7 ISO to a USB stick. In order to create a bootable USB stick for a Windows, on an Ubuntu machine, see How can I create a Windows bootable USB stick using Ubuntu?, or you could burn the Windows 7 ISO to a DVD.

You go to Settings -> Storage Under Controller IDE, click on Host Drive. On the right where it says Attributes -> CD/DVD Drive, Click on the cd image, and select 'choose a virtual CD/DVD disk file. Proceed to the File Browser and find the location of your iso file. Once you click open, the iso file will become your virtual CD/DVD drive, and you can install ...

I had the same problem, so I created a bootable USB stick using Rufus USB installer, following these instructions http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows but you must write image using DD image option.

It's quite common for users to want to "try" other flavors by installing say flavor-desktop rather than by trying out a whole new iso, either in a VM or in another partition, which, in my opinion, is the cleanest option. As you've noticed, the grub screen, the login and logout screens could all be altered without warning. Menus may contain duplicates. Two ...

Finally i found the way just we need add to add the following line in /etc/default/grub GRUB_PRELOAD_MODULES="lvm" then, in /etc/grub.d/40_custom menuentry "Ubuntu.iso" { set isofile="/iso/ubuntu.iso" search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root <your LV uuid here > loopback loop ($root)$isofile linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz.efi boot=casper iso-scan/...

PXE is the way to go here , however your device will need to support network booting and have that enabled in the BIOS. Most devices with built in ethernet can do it now but some of the cheaper versions have it disabled. There are instructions on setting up your PXE environemnt here, its quite involved and tricky to test so i won't both paraphrasing them ...

Your Intel 7265 uses the driver iwlwifi which also requires the module iwlmvm. The mini.iso evidently provides drivers for a limited number of common networking devices. I downloaded and extracted the mini.iso and, unfortunately, the module iwlmvm is not included. As well, when you tried to install, you got a message: "failed to load module iwlmvm (...

Yes, you absolutely can, but bear in mind that 'daily builds' are mere prototypes, not suitable for daily or long term use. They are created for testing new features and new alternative software.

They're probably fine, but as with all "daily" images, there's little testing and absolutely no guarantee that it will work properly. Ongoing attempts to fix one bug can sometimes break other things, and these issues are often not fixed within a single day. Feel free to try it out, but keep in mind it's totally at your own risk, and it's possible some ...

Install a program called 'syslinux' by sudo apt-get install syslinux. Then create/obtain an ISO9660 file (e.g. filename.iso). In a terminal window type: isohybrid filename.iso. Now the iso file is hybrid, you can use it as CD and USB image file. The hybridization process will change the checksum of the file. Make sure to check it against the new checksum. ...
