What Is Linux


New Member
I am having trouble downloading Linux Lite to a thumb drive. I am using a core2duo E4400 chip with 2Gig ram and 72Gig hard drive still using Win7 but hoping to format and replace with said Distro. I downloaded a program to install it (not Rufus the other one ) but cannot get the Distro onto my thumb drive. Will I have to download the Distro to my computer hard drive first and then on to the thumb drive? Can you purchase thumb drives with this stuff pre-loaded? Does the fact that I turned off Internet Explorer 11 in my Windows7 affect downloading to the E: removable drive? I am using Brave browser.

1. You have downloaded the ISO file to your PC

2. Use rufus or Etcher, or unetbootin

Better still....READ this a few times until you get the gist
