Yet another way to install Ubuntu 7.10 to ASUS Eee PC

Filed under
HowTos

The ASUS Eee PC model 701 (Pearl colour) comes with the following configuration :

Intel Celeron 630MHz CPU (someone in the net is reported as 900MHz)
4GB SSD hard drive
512MB RAM
1 X SD/SDHC/MMC card reader
3 X USB ports
1 X webcam
1 X VGA out

Step 1 :

I installed Ubuntu 7.10 SE (my remastered Ubuntu) on a Transcend 8GB Class 6 SDHC card with a no hard drive desktop computer as usual. My desktop is using mobile rack and it is very easy to remove the hard drive. Make sure to use ext2 and without creating swap partition.

After the installation, I deleted the xorg.conf at /etc/X11 to make the SDHC capable to run on every computer. You can delete the file after the reboot from the SDHC on the no hard drive desktop.

sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Step 2 :
