Hey there,

 

I would like to create a USB drive with Linux (linuxliveusb.com) to use for my Windows10 laptop. Unfortunately, everytime I try to choose the source "Download" and my preferred Linux version in the creator menu, the error message "No mirrors found" stops me. I have checked my internet connection and also tried different Linux versions but it still won't work.

Could anybody explain me what exactely this mirror is and what I can do to find one so it will work?

Thanks in advance.

 

Nikki

What distro are you attempting to download. If it's one of the supported distros in the LinuxLive matrix you can download the distro's iso from it's website and select iso image at step 2 in the program instead of clicking download.

1. Which Linux distro are trying to download?

2. What web browser are you using?

3. What OS are you using?

4. What web site are you trying to download from?

OS: Windows 10

web browser: Mozilla Firefox

website: linuxliveusb.com

 

I downloaded a creator software from the website and with this creator I was trying to create a Linux usb drive. I tried it with: Ubuntu 15.04 "Vivid Vervet" (Unity)

Ubuntu 15.04 is an old end of life version and it looks like the last supported version of livelinux. Coming from Windows you may be better off using Mint 17.2 which is still supported till 2019. Are you familiar with Mint? 

 

Edit: What is the make and model of the computer and how much RAM?

No actually I am not familiar with Mint, I am just getting into the whole Linux thing. Are there big differences because I was told Ubuntu would be great for beginners.

I planned on keeping Windows on my laptop and use Linux just with the usb drive. Ram is 8GB). My laptop is around a year, a HP Pavilion Z3B03EA#ABD; Intel® Core™ i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz.

Ubuntu is different enough where a beginner would be better off with Mint. 

 

I would recommend you use Mint Cinnamon 17.2 supported by livelinuxusb. If livelinuxusb allows you to use 18.2 I would download it and use the iso option in the program.

 

Mint Cinnamon

 

Ubuntu 16.04    If livelinux can let you install it with the iso option. I would not use 15.04

As a newby to Linux, I think that you would be lost in Ubuntu. Linux Mint will give you a similar experience to Windows and is an excellent way to start your Linux journey.
