Ubuntu Custom Distros for ICT
October 11, 2020 No Comments 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 Gnome desktop environments).

No need to install same set of softwares on each computer. This saves time and internet data if there are more computers or if there is low internet bandwidth.
Most of the required apps/softwares installed. So the .iso size is big. But saves 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.

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 st in bios or by hotkey)

Boot from your pen drive and select

Install Ubuntu on your system.

Follow further instructions carefully As they appear in the screen.
