Here's the scene...I have the netbook listed above...I have an iso file for Ubuntu...I have no CD/DVD drv in this system...I copied the iso file to USB pen drive...my bios lists a "removeable device" as an option for booting...I bought this netbook in 2008 so I'm assuming that I can boot from any usb device.
I copied the iso to the pen drive, I checked my bios to have "removeable device" as a first option...I reboot my machine and nothing happens except I arrive at the Windows login/welcome screen. I installed http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
that would allow me to boot from a usb device...still no joy. I believe I have followed their instructions exactly.
Q#1 - does just copying an iso file to the usb pen drv make it bootable?
Q#2 - Should I use my disk authoring/burning software instead of just copying?
