I am currently using Zorin OS 12.4 Core as the only Operating System on my ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 4 (20FC). I am trying install either Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS or Ubuntu 18.10 on my pc and it says that that I need either a DVD drive or a USB port for the installer media. I tried to get it onto a USB but it won't let me install it to a USB. How do I install either Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS or Ubuntu 18.10 on to my USB? DownloadUbuntuDesktop.jpg ImageBurningSetup.jpg
For a simple installer flash drive that will boot in UEFI
- Insert flash drive, note it's location, likely sdb.
Download Ubuntu ISO file, cd to it's directory.
Run in terminal:
sudo dd if=isofilename.iso of=/dev/sdb
(assuming sdb is the USB)
Process will take a while.
When done boot Ubuntu from USB flash drive in UEFI mode and install.
You can install
mkusb with the following commands in a terminal window. Zorin is similar enough to Ubuntu so that the same commands work (to install and run
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mkusb/ppa # and press Enter sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mkusb mkusb-nox usb-pack-efi
You can start mkusb
- from the menu or
from the command line in a terminal window
or easier (more directly to version 12,
and it will help you to identify and select the target device.
