good morning to all,


after i have spent some time wish different linux live cd's i think the time is right to install linux on usb or hard disk

as far i know i can install puppy mint and puppy slacko linux on usb without any extra software but some other linux distros need extra software to install linux on usb

i am interested in netrunner linux on usb or hard disk installation

i think that running linux from usb is too slow than from a hard disk

any advice ?

thanks in advance

No. You boot your PC from the Linux ISO then install to USB just like you would to HDD.

No problem tell us which you want. Like I said above the process to install linux to USB or HDD is the same.  you just select the drive you want to install to.

I would not worry about a back up partition for Linux.

Where do you want to install to? USB or HDD, Remember if you install to USB your Linux will not be as fast as it can be, However installing to USB is safer because you dont have to mess with partitions and therefore less chance of something going wrong.

good afternoon dear friend NickAu

i thank you very much for your kind reply

understood !

yes, i know that running linux from usb is slower than with a hard drive

i haven't decided yet... an 16 gb usb will cost around 9 euros while an 32 gb usb will cost almost 27 euros, an 500 gb hard disk will cost 52 euros

i think it is more convenient for me to run linux from usb for my fujitsu esprimo desktop

last night i have tried the netrunner linux 16 x64 bits (live dvd) , simply amazing

ok, i know now that i cannot have two partitions on usb for linux

many thanks again
