I have an old netbook lying around so I've been trying to install ubuntu on it. I downloaded unetbootin and the ubuntu iso, and used unetbootin to install it. In unetbootin, for "Space used to preserve files across reboots (ubuntu only)" I have tried both 10 MB and 3072 MB (I wasn't really sure what it was).
And both times, I can boot into ubuntu flawlessly, but nothing I do is saved when I reboot. And unfortunately I don't have any USB sticks or a CD drive, so I can't install Ubuntu the traditional way.
Is there any way I can install Ubuntu and get it to keep my files after I boot, or is this a lost cause?
