    Default How to boot from USB

    Hi all.

    Before i do anything, i am going to install the free Ububtu OS from their web replacing windows.

    So:

    1. Will my games work on Ubuntu?

    they are:
    Ship Sim 2008
    GTA IV
    UK Truck Simulator
    Spore

    2. If so, How to I boot from my USB that I downloaded the files to?

    Thanks


    [EDIT] Actually, i have found that you can install it alongside windows so i can run either of them. So would that be ok with my dv6000 specs?

    You could always move this to the Linux thread as it is regarding ubuntu..
    but as a linux user-in short
    You can use unetbootin UNetbootin - Homepage and Downloads to make a bootable usb and install ubuntu off of there..quite a simple process

    some also prefer this: Boot and run Linux from a USB flash memory stick | USB Pen Drive Linux


    yes with your specs you can definitely dual boot windows and Linux...
    You can always partition your Hard drive for linux space..
