    This guide is intended to introduce you to the very many ways in which Ubuntu may be installed to your machine depending on your specific use case. 

    This guide also covers a complete list of alternative installation methods for Ubuntu. 

  • Standard installation
  • Installation from a USB drive 


Standard Installation (From a CD/DVD)

Standard installation basically means we are intalling Ubuntu from a live DVD/CD. The standard Ubuntu desktop installation uses a Graphical Install, which is meant to cruise you through the installation process in a very small number of easy steps. To get the installer up and running, you will need to obtain an installation live CD.

  1. Put the Ubuntu DVD into the DVD-drive.

 If you are using Windows, you should see a popup window giving you the option to install Ubuntu or try it from the DVD.
 Alternatively, restart your computer. You should see a welcome screen prompting you to choose your language and giving you the option to install Ubuntu or try it from the DVD.

2.   Prepare to install Ubuntu

  • We recommend you plug your computer into a power source
  • You should also make sure you have enough space on your computer to install Ubuntu
  • We advise you to select Download updates while installing and Install this third-party software now
  • If you dont have an internet connection, don't worry, you can still go on installing. We,ll download updates later.

    3.    Allocate drive space

    Use the checkboxes to choose whether you’d like to Install Ubuntu alongside another operating system, delete your existing operating system and replace it with Ubuntu, or — if you’re an advanced user — choose the ’Something else’ option

    4.   Begin the installation

    Depending on your previous selections, you can now verify that you have chosen the way in which you would like to install Ubuntu. The installation process will begin when you click the Install Now button.
    Ubuntu needs about 4.5 GB to install, so add a few extra GB to allow for your files.

    5.   Select your location

    Check your location is correct and click ’Forward’ to proceed. If you’re unsure of your time zone, type the name of the town you’re in or click on the map and Ubuntu will help you find it.

    6.   Select your preferred keyboard layout

    Click on the language option you need. If you’re not sure, click the ’Detect Keyboard Layout’ button for help.
    1. 7.  Enter your login and password details

    2. the system installs…

      …or make a cup of tea!

      All that’s left is to restart your computer and start enjoying Ubuntu!

      Installing Ubuntu from a USB drive

      Ubuntu can be installed from a USB flash drive. This may be necessary for netbooks and other computers without CD drives and is handy for others because a USB flash drive is so convenient. Also, you can configure Ubuntu on the USB flash drive to save changes you make, unlike a read-only CD-ROM drive.
      Booting from a USB flash drive created with this utility will behave just as if you had booted from the install CD. It will show the language selection and then the install menu, from which you can install Ubuntu onto the computer's hard drive or launch the LiveCD environment. 
       Step 1. Create a Bootable USB drive (How to create a bootable USB drive)

       Step 2. Insert the USB drive into the computer's USB port

      Step 3. Restar the computer and choose the 'Boot fron USB device' Menu.

      Step 4. You should see a welcome screen prompting you to choose your language and giving you the option to install Ubuntu or try it from the DVD.
      Step 5.  Follow steps 1-7 from above.
