Ubuntu 9.04 UNR on Asus Eee PC

Filed under
Ubuntu

Last night I downloaded the Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix (UNR) and installed it on my Asus Eee PC 901. Here’s how it all went.

Firstly, I downloaded it from the Ubuntu site by clicking on the link about Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Then I followed the instructions on the site (and echoed in David M Williams’ article here) and put that image onto an old 1 GB USB key.

Booting from the USB key was pretty trivial - hit the Escape key while the Eee PC is booting and select the USB device from the menu. Booting from the USB key only took a few moments.

I went through the installation process, choosing to manual format the partitions to Ext4. I have a Windows XP Eee PC, with the 4GB+8GB SSDs. I still dual-boot with Windows and I choose to have my Linux home and root partitions separate.
