It is possible to install Ubuntu from the internet by booting from a USB stick or a CDROM. This method of installation is called netinst in Debian and that name is used here as well.

Getting the Image

The images for this are stored in

  • (for 64 bit)

  • (for 32bit)

The CD image is called mini.iso (~12MB) and the image for usb keys is called boot.img.gz (~12MB)

Preparing for Boot

The ISO can be burned to CD with any standard disc burning software, just be sure the ISO is being used as a source image and not just a file on a data disk. To prepare a USB stick, back up any data that you have on it (any data will be overwritten) and zcat boot.img.gz >> /dev/sdX  where X is the letter of your USB stick.
