Install Ubuntu - the easy way!!

By ReachOutForBits | internetthing | 22 Aug 2020


Hey everyone, reachoutforbits here - wanted to show you how to install my fave OS of all time!

I use ubuntu for basically everything - including crypto mining and blog writing

 

If this is your first OS switch it can be overwhelming!! be prepared to relearn some basic stuff about ubuntu

-----------------

 

There is a few ways to do this - but rofb has a personal fav and it is USB install (CDROM if we can but not lately)

 

Since there is a few os and some might be wanting to transfer here is how to get the UBUNTU****.ISO onto a usb

 

WINDOWS - balenaetcher, rufus

LINUX - balenaetcher

MAC - balenaetcher

 

as you can see, balena is probably your best bet and honestly - the GUI makes it worth it.

 

So basically after you get a USB flash software running you need to:

-FORMAT THE DRIVE WITH THE SOFTWARE; if the drive is important to you and that data was also - you can nuke the drive before flash

nukes are free and you can find one on UBCD - DBAN is highly recommended and if your super paranoid cancel your second nuke mid way thru to "break the disk wipe" and restart format from another method *** beware that this method can make the disk unreadable by windows and mac requiring you to manually mount inside a linux OS and run a format or flash

 

-LET THE SOFTWARE LOAD THE UBUNTU****.ISO

 

get this from ubuntu website

 

-LEAVE THE USB NAME TO WHATEVER THE SOFTWARE CHOOSES

it builds the drive to that name usually and if you change it you may have to manually do some install parts

 

-FLASH THE USB

this is way easy and usually you never have to change any settings, once or twice on older machines it was REQUIRED to use rufus to build the disk in order to have the right table for OLD COMPUTERS and BIOS, yes ubuntu will install on that beast in the corner from 1999. Trust me.

 

 

-BOOT DISK/CLICK INSTALL

do not click try ubuntu. unless you want to carry a ubuntu disk without OS installing which is actaully really handy. but dont do it, FLASH DISKS ARE A TOOL. remember that. keep all tools in a safe place.

 

 

-ENJOY UBUNTU
