How to Install/Update Ubuntu Linux OS (12.04)




Linux Ubuntu OS, FAQ, Ubuntu, Installation Guides
Ubuntu OS, Linux OS, FAQ, Linux Features, System Requirements

Installing Linux Ubuntu (OS)

Requirements:
You will need the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Desktop ISO image that corresponds to your hardware architecture
(i386 or amd64), and that can be downloaded from here. When the download is over, burn the ISO image with your favorite CD/DVD burning application (Nero, CDBurnerXP, Roxio) on a blank CD at 8x speed.





Step 1:

Reinsert or leave the CD in your CD/DVD-ROM device and reboot the computer in order to boot from the CD. Hit the F8, F11 or F12 key (depending on your BIOS) to select the CD/DVD-ROM as the boot device.

Wait for the CD to load...

Step 2:

After a few minutes you will see the wallpaper and the installation wizard. Select your LANGUAGE

Click the "INSTALL UBUNTU" button to continue...

Step 3:

Preparing to Install Ubuntu
Optionally, you can choose to download updates while installing and/or install third party software, such as MP3 support. Be aware, though, that if you select those options, the entire installation process will be longer

Step 4:

Allocate Drive Space

At this screen you have various options:

  1. INSTALL UBUNTU 12.04 LTS ALONGSIDE (OTHER OPERATING SYSTEMS)
    • Choose this option ONLY if you have another OS (e.g. Windows XP) and you want a dual boot system. You can choose which operating system you want each time the computer starts up.

      Editor's Note: Remember that, after the installation, the Windows boot loader will be overwritten by the Ubuntu boot loader!.

  2. UPGRADE UBUNTU X.X TO 12.04 LTS
    • Choose this option ONLY if you have another Ubuntu OS (e.g. Ubuntu 11.10) and you want to upgrade it to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Your personal files will be saved, but you will have to reinstall most of your packages. The general system settings will be erased!

  3. ERASE AND USE THE ENTIRE DISK (ERASE UBUNTU X.X AND REINSTALL)
    • Choose this option if you want to delete your existing operating system, or the hard drive is already empty and you want to let the installer automatically partition the hard drive for you. This is the option recommended for all users, especially those who want a machine with a single operating system on it.

  4. SOMETHING ELSE (ADVANCED)
    • This option is recommended ONLY for advanced users, to create special partitions or format the hard drive with other filesystems than the default one. But it can also be used to create a /home partition, which is very useful in case you reinstall the whole system

HERE'S HOW YOU DO A MANUAL PARTITIONING WITH /HOME:

  1. Select the "Specify partitions manually (advanced) and click the "Forward" button;
  2. Make sure that the selected hard drive is the right one. /dev/sda is the first physical hard drive. /dev/sdb is the second hard drive in your machine. So, make sure that you know which is the one you want to format! Otherwise, you will lose ALL YOUR DATA on that hard drive;
  3. Let's say that the selected drive is empty (no other operating system or important data on it), but it has some partitions on it. Select each one of those partitions and click the "Delete" button. After a few seconds, it will say "free space." Do this with the other partitions from the selected hard drive, until they're all deleted and you have a single "free space" entry;
  4. With the "free space" entry selected, click on the "Add" button. In the new window, type 2048 in the "New partition size in megabytes" field and select the "swap area" option from the "Use as:" drop down list. Click the OK button and, in a few seconds, you'll notice a "swap" line with the specified size;
  5. With the "free space" line selected, click on the "Add" button. In the new window, select the "Primary" option, type a value between 30,000 and 50,000 (or whatever space you have left on the drive) in the "New partition size in megabytes" field and select /home as the "Mount point." Click the OK button and, in a few seconds, you'll notice an "ext4 /home" line with the specified size;
  6. With the "free space" entry selected, click on the "Add" button. In the new window, select the "Primary" option, type a value between 10,000 and 50,000 in the "New partition size in megabytes" field and select / as the "Mount point." Click the OK button and, in a few seconds, you'll notice an "ext4 /" line with the specified size.

Warning: Be aware that all the data on the selected hard drive or partition will be ERASED and IRRECOVERABLE.

Step 5:

After you finish the partitioning of your harddrive you can now press "Install Now" button to continue with the installation...

At this screen you have various options:

Editor's Note: At this point the hard drive will be erase and partitioned, the CD data will be copied to the hard drive, and you can relax and continue to input the following required information.

Step 6:

WHERE ARE YOU: Type Philippines

This screen will feature a map of the Earth. Upon the selection of your current location, the time for the final system will adjust accordingly. You can try to guess you exact location with the mouse on the map, or just type the town in the designated field. Click the "Forward" button after you have selected your desired location...

Step 7:

KEYBOARD LAYOUT

On this screen, you will be able to choose a desired keyboard layout. But the default automatic selection should work for most of you. You can also click the "Figure Out Keyboard Layout" button for better recognition of your keyboard's layout. Click the "Forward" button when you have finished with the keyboard configuration...

At this screen you have various options:

Editor's Note: At this point the hard drive will be erase and partitioned, the CD data will be copied to the hard drive, and you can relax and continue to input the following required information.

Step 8:

WHO ARE YOU: Type your desired Username and Password

On this screen, you must do exactly what the title says. Fill in the fields with your real name, the name of the computer (automatically generated, but can be overwritten), the name you want to use to log in on your Ubuntu OS (also known as the "username," which will be required to log in to the system), and the password.

Also at this step, there's an option called "Log in automatically." If you check it, you will automatically be logged in to the Ubuntu desktop.

Other option, called "Encrypt my home folder," will encrypt your Ubuntu installation. Click the "Forward" button to continue...

Step 9:

AT THIS POINT THE UBUNTU 12.04 LTS (PRECISE PANGOLIN) OPERATING SYSTEM WILL BE INSTALLED...

At this screen you have various options:

Editor's Note: At this point the hard drive will be erase and partitioned, the CD data will be copied to the hard drive, and you can relax and continue to input the following required information.

Step 10:

After Approximately 10 to 15 Minutes (Depending on your computer specs), a pop-up window will appear
notifying you that the installation is complete.

and you'll need to restart the computer in order to use the newly installed "UBUNTU" Operating System

Click the "RESTART NOW" button.

Step 11:

THE CD WILL BE EJECTED; REMOVE IT AND PRESS THE "ENTER" KEY TO REBOOT.

Step 12:

AT THE LOGIN SCREEN, JUST INPUT YOUR PASSWORD AND CLICK THE LITTLE "LOG IN" BUTTON OR HIT ENTER TO LOG IN...

Step 13:
