smoke_hey guys! computer novice here getting ready to try and install xubuntu for the first time. I put new hard drive into a windows computer and planning to use disk imager to write iso to the hard drive. Am I on the right track?01:23
krytariksmoke_: No, not quite.  You need to create a bootable DVD/USB from it, and install from there.01:25
smoke_okay, can do! Do I need to format the hard disk with a certain file system type or anything prior? or the usb setup will take care of that all?01:26
krytarikThe latter.01:27
smoke_@krytarik great thank you :)01:27
krytarikYou are welcome. :)01:27
