I'm trying to revitilize an old P4 desktop w/1.25GB of RAM. The BIOS does not have any option to boot from USB. The CD/DVD for whatever reason does not recognize the Lubuntu (and other Linux distros) DVDs that I burned. I tried using a boot manager DVD to launch the USB installer - that also did not work. The CD/DVD does recognize Windows based CDs, not sure why. So my question - I have Windows XP running on this machine - is there any method of launching the Lumbuntu installer from inside the Windows OS ? I want to wipe XP off the box, not duel boot. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you !
The drive is probably just a CDR/RW burner and can't read DVD. If so you need to find an image that is smaller than 700MB to find on a CD. Check the Lubuntu download pages for more info.
