Unable to boot Ubuntu on USB from Linpus Linux
I have a ACER ASPIRE V5-121 NETBOOK (APU DUAL CORE/ 2GB/ 500GB/ LINUX/ 256MB GRAPH) (NX.M83SI.006).
It comes with pre loaded Linpus linux which doesn't have a GUI.
I tried commands like 'startx' but it doesn't seem to work.
I have a pen drive loaded with Ubuntu OS, which I made as a startup disk using 'Linux live USB Creator' from another system.
Now I want to erase the Linpus Linux and install Ubuntu, and I want to do this from the USB.
So, my question is, how do I make my laptop read from the USB ? Sorry I am a linux noob and want to know how to do it. My Acer netbook has no CD/DVD drive as well.
