Unhappy Xpud os

Hello, As I am trying to put new life (I would like to use it to cast p.ex. Youtube to my TV) in my Asus eeepc 900 (Intel Celeron 900MHz CPU-HDD 4GB), I have tried several OS (Cub 32, Eeebuntu, Puppy, Android, LinuxLite, XP Lite, etc.), but all failed: no internet, too little memory, not the correct partition, etc. I was very happy to happen upon Xpd OS (and this Site). I merely need an OS to do what I want it to do (as e.g. LibreElec does for Kodi): visit the internet and cast to my Tv. After downloading the XPUD ISO and running it on my little notebook, (internet was OK and very fast, and no other ballast) I wanted to install and run it from my HDD - there I was blocked once again. I googled a lot and found one Question about this on your site (Heiberg) and an answer from 'esm_menc', member, but for the TOTAL newby all this is, unfortunately, unfathomable. I would like a step by step instruction. Does this exist for XPUD (or for any other suitable OS. Thanks beforehand for any answer or help.

Hi Mandefu and welcome to LQ.

I am surprised that a distro like Puppy gave you problems - it sounds like a good fit for your requirements. AntiX is also often mentioned by many members here as a good distro for old hardware.

That said, in order to help you with your xpd (xpud ?) installation (I am absolutely unfamiliar with xpd / xpud ...): Try and give us some more details concerning the problem you're having installing it - where you say you're "blocked again" .. what exactly is happening ?

Let's start there ... !

Hello, Thank you very much for your prompt reply. I tried Puppy and it made some partitions on my eeepc, after which there was not enough space - and I am not good enough to solve this. Also: I do not need office-like programs or other ballast. This is Xpud:
I found some information on!to...ux/JyTF8t99hxM
And on
Unfortunately, all this goes beyond my knowledge.
By 'blocked again' I mean that I can run XPUD from the Iso (and it runs fine), but that I don't know how to install it on my eeepc. I have no information on AntiX, but I will certainly look it up. Thanks again

In the mean time I learned that the gui installer defaults is 6gb - and I I have only 4gb at my disposition. So I suppose tat is the reason that I was blocked ever time....Is there a way to remedy this?
