I have installed the newest ubuntu in windows vista


New Member
Hi, I'm a super nooob, I have installed the newest ubuntu on a vista platform as the primary ios, its a little sluggish but I found puppy linux. I did a usb boot, I have it on the system and I like it more for my taste. Plus I love the Pup background. How do I keep the puppy as the main ios, instead of ubuntu. Everytime I try to boot on puppy it goes to ubuntu, I have to stick the usb and start all over, what I/m doing wrong? help?

You will likely need to actually "install" Puppy onto the hard drive.
It sounds like you are running Puppy from the USB stick - which Puppy is designed to do.
The Puppy Live image AND the Puppy documentation have very good, clear, and concise instructions
on how to install to hard disk.

You mentioned Vista.

What kinda hardware are you working with? There might be a more suitable distro. Puppy isn't really meant to be installed, though you can. As Vrai said, it's meant to be run from the USB stick.
