Ubuntu Custom Distros for ICT
December 20, 2020 1 Comment IT info admin

I have created customized distros of Ubuntu for the purpose of including most of the required software in one installation package. (Also has Cinnamon and default Ubuntu desktop environments).

Once installed, no need to install same set of prescribed softwares on each computer, because all are pre-installed in this distribution. This saves time and internet data, if there are more computers to be installed with same set of apps. or if there is low internet bandwidth for a single computer as well.
Most of the required apps/softwares were installed. So the .iso size is obviously big, don’t complain about it. It saves you from additional downloading hassels later.

You need rufus tool [Click Here to Download rufus tool] to write the iso to your USB flash Drive(8gb or more in size.). Select NTFS file system for pen drive. Use DD image mode if you get error. [A link to video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPF4_zFR-D0 ]
All files already in the usb pen drive will be gone. And contents of the iso will be written to the pendrive. Remember to select the correct pen drive in Rufus tool. Otherwise, you may end up formatting wrong drive.

After successful writing of ISO image, one need to install it on – one of the partitions of hard disk of the computer where this is intended to be installed.

Do a restart of system. From this point onwards, you shall take responsibility of whatever happens to your system. This is not my call to assure you about anything if goes wrong with your system / revenue / time / relationship / fame / freedom/ fun / or whatever by following this tutorial. [No pun intended]

Go to Bios settings (it looks different for different pcs) and select boot mode as legacy. Remember that this may cause your windows (if exists) not to boot at all. And select save settings and exit. Yes to restart.
It is also advised to keep mbr partitions sceme instead of GPT scheme in the hard disk for better troubleshooting of boot related issues in the future. (if anything happens by your actions)

You need to instert the USB drive again and select as first boot device. (can be set in bios or by pressing a hotkey before boot postscreen.)

Boot from your pen drive, press F2 to directly install.

Or just wait simply to load live Ubuntu. And then select: Install Ubuntu on your system if you decide to install.

Follow further instructions carefully As they appear in the installation screen. Be careful with your data. As messing with it can ruin your files and OS. So please take caution and precaution.

[Do only what you are actually aware of doing at your own risk and responsibility].
