Installing Linux via USB is a common and convenient method. However, like any installation process, it can sometimes encounter issues. Here are some common problems and solutions:
1- The USB drive is not bootable.
Ensure that you have created a bootable USB drive using a reliable tool like Rufus, UNetbootin, or the dd command (Linux). Double-check that the ISO image is compatible and not corrupted.
2- The computer doesn’t recognize the USB drive as a bootable device.
Access the BIOS/UEFI settings during startup (usually by pressing a key like F2, F10, F12, or Del), and check that the USB drive is set as the primary boot device. Also, make sure that the system is set to boot in UEFI or Legacy mode, depending on your USB drive and system compatibility.
3- Wi-Fi not working after installation.
Ensure that your wireless card is supported. If necessary, use a wired connection during installation. After installation, update your system and install the appropriate drivers for your wireless card.
4- The installation process couldn’t be completed successfully.
Check the error messages displayed during installation for clues. You may need to restart the installation process, ensuring that you follow the steps carefully.
Installing Linux distributions with a USB drive is an easy and straightforward way. I hope that by going through these steps, you will be able to install the distribution you want on any device and configure it as you wish. Thank you for your attention to this article.
