Change from One Linux Ubuntu desktop to another Linux OS


I want to install Chalot OS on my laptop. I have Zorin Ultimate 11, but want to change to Chalot. I have followed the steps to make a UNbootin USB with the ISO on it but the USB will not boot up. I have changed the Bios setup to pick the USB first but without any luck. The system recognizes the USB but will not boot from it.

Did you do an md5 checksum on the iso you downloaded to verify it? You can find the md5sum at the link below in the center of the page in very small print 'checksum file'.

Have you tried booting the usb drive on another computer to eliminate that as a possible problem.
What does 'will not boot' mean? That's a little vague, you need to be more specific on what happens. Unetbootin should work as ChaletOS is just another Ubuntu.

Hello and welcome to the forum

As one suggestion, did you check the integrity of the ISO you downloaded? Please see here. An easier way of doing in this in Zorin is to download and install a program called "GtkHash," available from the repositories using your software manager.

It's also possible that UNetbootin did not load the files correctly on your USB drive. If UNetbootin is unable to work correctly on your system, you can also try using another tool. Please see the thread here or this page. Some of these might be available in the repositories.

Regards...

if you can't even spell the name of the distro right, and the application you used to create the usb, how can you expect to succeed with this?
please show us exactly what you did, maybe you made more typos.

what advice on installing from usb did you find on chalet os webpages?
that's always the first place to go to.

From the Arch wiki. It should work the same on your system

"In GNU/Linux
Tip: Find out the name of your USB drive with lsblk. Make sure that it is not mounted.
Run the following command, replacing /dev/sdx with your drive, e.g. /dev/sdb. (do not append a partition number, so do not use something like /dev/sdb1):
# dd bs=4M if=/path/to/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx status=progress && sync
The option status=progress above reports transfer progress every so often. Do not miss sync to complete before pulling the USB drive."

UNbootin never worked well for me. Just be careful with the dd command. You can wipe your entire hard drive.
