You may use a virtual machine to set up Linux on the Windows system and run the Linux alongside the Windows. However, I am not a fan of virtual machine, I favor to run a dedicated computer. I’ve managed directories like Sybase, MySQL, and Oracle on Solaris, AIX, Red Hat Linux for many years, I had formed never liked the virtual machine method.
Now I am teaching classes, I want a dual boot laptop computer, I do not feel just like to use virtual machine still. In this specific article I describe the way I had installed the Ubuntu desktop system with an external SSD drive. If I connect in the USB SSD drive, the computer boots to Ubuntu otherwise it boots to Windows desktop.
The only reason I use Windows is due to Microsoft Office collection. 1. Log into your home windows computer. 2. Open a web browser and go to the Ubuntu download site, the Ubuntu website shall properly detect your OS and hardware and give you the correct ISO image. Ubuntu-16.4.2-desktop-amd64.Iso (64 bits) or Ubuntu-16.4.2-desktop-i386.Iso (32 parts). 3. You will need to download Rufus USB installer. 4. Once you have the ISO image and Rufus installer, you are ready to graft Ubuntu ISO image to a USB drive. The USB drive must have at least 2GB free space. Browse the instructions on the Ubuntu website, “How to make a bootable USB stay on Windows”.
