I need a stable server. so I decide to make a server in Linux.
So I need to learn about the Linux.
This is a basic step for learning Linux.
I have prepared a computer for linux testing.
It has 2RAM and 32bit.
Since the computer is somewhat old, I have downloaded Xunbutu 32 bit at https://xubuntu.org/download#lts instead of Ubuntu or Linux mint.
Its size is 57KB only is very small compared to ubuntu-1804.3-desktop-amd64.iso 1.93GB.
The small size file is now in my thumb drive.
It has no EXE file.
(I put the USB into the testing computer I prepared.
And power on the computer and press F1 several times.
It going to BIOS but select windows 7 only no other choise.)
If your computer is old, are you sure it supports booting from USB?
Hi there joon1,
assuming that your somewhat old computer is up to the task, you
may find some useful information in the following @John_Betong
thread on the subject…
Will you treat yourself to a LinuXmas this holiday?
The file I downloaded is xubuntu-18.04.3-desktip.iso.torrent.
Oh, it is a torrent.
Since I am a stranger in torrent, I like to get the full xubuntu file.
Where can I get it?
Use one of the mirrors on the download page:
(1) I chose one of the mirrors, ie, JAPAN and downloaded “32-bit PC (i386) desktop image”.
It took sometime for downloading the ISO.
(2) I moved it to my USB.
(3) I put it into the testing computer I prepared.
(4) I powered on the testing computer and F1 key several time.
(5) It going to BIOS but the BIOS still shows WINDOWS 7 only.
I guess My computer doesn’t support booting from USB.
I think I need a CD or a new computer which support booting from USB.
The downloaded file cannot simply be “moved to the USB”.
Please read and follow @TechnoBear’s instructions in her post #2
Also ensure your BIOS is set to boot from a thumbdrive. If you do not know what startup keys are required to activate and change the BIOS then search the internet for the instructions.
After installation remember to change your BIOS back to the original settings.
I have successfully installed Xubuntu.
Thanks to all.
I have long way to go…
