Ubuntu: No current OS, want to use ubuntu [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

My son has built a computer. It has no operating system. We want to install ubuntu via a usb. His computer has no internet access, so I want to download ubuntu to a usb through my laptop, then use the usb to install it on his. The usb is Fat/32. It looks like the instructions I find on this site are for installing on machines with existing Microsoft or Apple operating systems.


download ubuntu ( disc image ) .iso from the website.

download UUI (or something like that ) from http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/

It will guide you through the necessary steps to make the usb ready. PS: it will format it.

Now the tricky-ish part is to go to the bios of the computer with no OS and enable USB booting from the boot menu. Giving us the motherboard model of that computer would help.

Best of luck.


First off: tell your son he's awesome and should keep doing what he's doing

But anyways back on topic:

  1. Download UNetbootin

  2. Open UNetbootin

  3. Have your settings set to these:

Step 1

  1. Set Drive to your Flash Drive

  2. Click OK

  3. Remove the flash drive after completion

  4. Plug it into your son's computer

  5. Start your son's computer

  6. Select the flash drive as the boot device

  7. Profit!


You can install Ubuntu on the USB from your laptop even if you're running Windows.
To do so:

  • Make sure you have a usb with more than 2GB of space

  • Download the Pen Drive Linux USB Installer here

  • Run the application and select Ubuntu from the dropdown list

  • Click "Browse" and open the downloaded iso file.

  • Choose the USB drive and select "Create".

And you're done! You can now install Ubuntu from the USB pendrive without requiring Internet access :)


You can install Ubuntu with and without another OS pre-installed. Download from here. Make sure the image is put on the USB stick correctly and move booting from USB up in the boot order in the bios settings. There is some shit going on with UEFI, so make sure to disable it in the bios settings.
