I have burned a CD ready to sanitize a laptop but have come across a laptop that has no CD drive. Is there a way around this?

I am trying to boot from Labtix (CD as USB does not work) but the error message appears “Select CD-ROM Boot Type”. I have tried a method I found in various pages online but it does not work - some pages. https://medium.com/@mark.stanislav/fixing-select-cd-rom-boot-type-when-booting-windows-or-linux-on-a-mac-76bde5d6a593 https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/633983 https://www...

Hey everyone, A few months ago, I tagged two laptops (sanitized one of them) and gave them - together with the needed forms - to a local AfB shop. But since then, the status of the dootronics was not updated, they are still just "tagged" - does it always take that long, or what happened to the laptops? Any way to find that out? :/

Hi, I am trying to install Latix in an old laptop which does not boot from my new labtix USB, so i've been told i should create a bootable CD or DVD, Is the labtix image already bootable? If not, what program should i use to download the image into a bootable DVD? Thanks guys!

I tried to install Labtix in an external hard disk but I don' t know if it is all right. I do not have an old laptop now to test it on. I have unzipped once ( i would say), but i believe i should do it twice, but what exactly? Can you tell me what to do next by seeing the attached screenshot? Thanks

Hi everyone! My name is Sampson. I am very new here and finding the information here overwhelming. Can someone help me by showing me how to request for a laptop for my pupils at school? I am glad to join this amazing group. Thanks! Sampson.

Good afternoon from Santiago Atitlán. I have been trying to reconfigure my computer language on a Lenovo Thinkpad with an Ubuntu 16.04 system installed. I know that this computer is connected to the internet because I double checked by going on its browser, but whenever I try to change the computer language to Spanish through Language Support, it says that my connection is down. When I...

IBM ThinkPad which has very slow and old Pentium M processor. It also has a WiFi device which is very old (Intel PRO/Wireless 2100) and after Lubuntu 14.04 is installed, WiFi can't be used - only through Ethernet cable to connect to internet. There are many postings online about this, but no clear solution. There was this page https://wiki.debian.org/ipw2200 but I couldn’t download the firmware...
