No DVD reader: how to install Mint13 xfce on the HDD? (USB boot possible)
 
Hello,
I cannot use the CDROM of my hp dc7100. It cannot read the Mint13 DVD. That PC boot today well via USB (TinyCoreLinux).
I would like to install Mint13 xfce on the HDD and use it.
Can I have a quick advice how to install Min13 xfce in a robust way on my HDD?

Since I could not start unetbootin inside TinyCoreLinux, I installed unetbootin on a samsung nc10 netbook and Win7. At the time I made the USB with Mint13 xfce on it and unetbootin under Win7. Then, the hp dc7100 booted from the usb with Mint13 xfce and the installation is running. Thanks. I will close that thread as soon the installation is done. First time I used unetbootin. Great thing.
