install ubuntu 14.10 on Dell Inspiron i13z-3182RED from usb

In order to make an Ubuntu live USB for installing Ubuntu on Dell Inspiron i13z-3182RED, use UNetbootin (Windows<=Windows 7/Mac/Linux/Ubuntu Software Center). The flash drive you use should be4GB or larger , plus whatever additional space on the USB drive you want to use for persistent file storage, and formatted to FAT32. UNetbootin will automatically format the USB flash drive to FAT32 if it is not already formatted to FAT32. In either case the formatting procedure will delete all of the files that are already on the flash drive.

It is very important to verify that the Dell Inspiron i13z-3182RED are installing the Ubuntu live USB to is indeed your flash drive, so that you don’t overwrite any of your system or personal files which may make your operating system unbootable. In Ubuntu you can find the device name of the flash drive using Disk Utility (or Disks if you are using Ubuntu 13.04, 13.10 or 14.10 and onward). In the picture below the name of the flash drive is /dev/sdc1 where /dev/sdc is the device name of the flash drive and the 1 after sdc means UNetbootin will install the Ubuntu live USB on the first partition on Dell Inspiron i13z-3182RED.
The Ubuntu live USB flash drive that you make this way will be bootable from Dell Inspiron i13z-3182RED. In order to enable your computer to boot from the USB flash drive, you must enter your BIOS menu by pressing one of these keys, usually: Delete, F2 or F10 as soon as the motherboard splash screen appears when the computer is booting. In the BIOS menu, you need to change the boot order so that the USB flash drive, which is usually called USB-HDD in Dell Inspiron i13z-3182RED, is the first entry in the boot sequence, and then save your new BIOS settings and exit the BIOS setup.
After download, open it up, choose the ubuntu version, browse for the ISO file, choose you usb drive, and click GO
After few seconds you will find your USB Drive name has changed to PENDRIVE and it become bootable!

Creat a bootable Ubuntu USB flash drive from Acer Aspire E1-531

Here is a tutorial  to create a bootable UbuntuUSB flash drive manually from Acer Aspire E1-531. The advantage is you don’t have to empty your USB flash drive if you have enough space for the files. It also allows multi boot, so you can have your USB flash drive holding both 32bit and 64bit versions of Ubuntu and other Boot CD tools at the same time.

In order to creat a bootable Ubuntu USB flash drive from Acer Aspire E1-531 you need :

Bootable USB flash drive ( NTFS / FAT32 ), Disk with MBR.
Ubuntu ISO of your choice
Tools to extract files from the ISO ( ISO Mount, WinZIP, WinRAR, 7Zip, etc….)
First you need to install grub onto the USB’s MBR. Follow the link to the Grub4DOS Wiki:
For more details, visit: http://sourceforge.net/projects/grub4dos/

Next, you open up the ISO file and extract the files in casper directory. The size (and possibly manifest) are needed if you want to install from the USB flash drive otherwise the install from Acer Aspire E1-531 will fail.

Copy grldr to the root of the drive.

-rwxrwxrwx 1 adrian adrian   2760 2010-05-04 23:08 menu.lst*
/media/Fujitsu 30GB USB$

Now create menu.lst at the root of USB. Example of menu.lst:

default /default
#####################
title Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD
find –set-root /bootimg/ubuntu.10.4.x86/initrd.lz
kernel /bootimg/ubuntu.10.4.x86/vmlinuz boot=casper live-media-path=/bootimg/ubuntu.10.4.x86/ ignore_uuid
initrd /bootimg/ubuntu.10.4.x86/initrd.lz
boot

Make sure the path match where the files you copy to.

Now, reboot your Acer Aspire E1-531.

Simpler way using the ISO file

Another way is just using the ISO file as it is on an already bootable USB flash drive that uses Grub (to create one, see above).

copy the iso file onto the USB flash drive in the root (top) directory
add these lines to the menu.lst file:

title Ubuntu 11.04 i386
find –set-root /ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso
map /ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso (0xff)
map –hook

How to Boot Toshiba Satellite C855-S5343 From USB

There are many reasons for booting your Toshiba Satellite C855-S5343 from a USB drive. For example, if you want to install another operating system as OS X Yosemite, then installing the new OS on an external usbdrive is a good way to install it.This approach will offer you the flexibility of being able to run both operating systems on your computer. However, before you can boot the new operating system from the USB drive, you will need to change the boot order for your Toshiba Satellite C855-S5343 in the system BIOS.

1, Connect the external USB drive or pen drive to your Toshiba Satellite C855-S5343, Press the “Delete” key as it performs the “Power On Self Test” (POST) to enter the BIOS area of the computer firmware. The POST performs a diagnostic of components on the motherboard and does a cursory check of the hard drive, memory and processor. The POST only lasts a few seconds; therefore, press the “Delete” key quickly.

2, Enter the administrative BIOS password if prompted to do so. Once you enter the correct password, you will see the main BIOS screen.

3,Use the right-arrow key to navigate to the “BOOT” menu option at the top of the screen, and press the “Enter” key.

4,Press the down-arrow key until the cursor is on the “Boot Device Priority” label. Hit “Enter,” and press the down-arrow key again to highlight the “1st Boot Device” option.

5,Press the “+” or “-” keys to scroll through the available boot options until the “USB Drive” or “USB-HDD” label is the highlighted option.

6,Press the “F10” key to save changes and exit the BIOS setup program. When Toshiba Satellite C855-S5343 restarts, wait for the “press any key to boot from external drive” prompt to display, and then press any key on the keyboard to boot  your Toshiba Satellite C855-S5343 from the USB drive.

How to install the Windows 10 on Acer AS5552-3691

Here are the hardware requirements for Acer AS5552-3691 to install windows 10

Processor : 1GHz or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2
RAM : 1GB (32-bit) or 2GB (64-bit)
Hard disk space : 16GB
Graphics card : Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver

Dual boot Windows 10 in a hard drive partition

Warning : Do not upgrade from an existing version of Windows of Acer AS5552-3691. Although this is possible, there are no guarantees you will not lose data or programs, nor that you will be able to downgrade if you decide you don’t like it.

We’re assuming a certain level of knowledge here, so if you can’t follow the instructions below, this build of Windows 10 probably isn’t for you.
Step 1: Head to preview.windows.com and click on the link to sign up for the Windows Insider Program. You’ll need to sign in with a Microsoft ID – it’s fully free to create one.

Step 2: After signed in, click the purple Continue button, or if you’re already on the next page, click the purple “Get the preview” button.

Don’t click the the ‘Start upgrade now’ button, though. This will upgrade the version of Windows you’re using on Acer AS5552-3691, which probably isn’t what you want to do.
Step 3: Download Microsoft’s Windows 7 USB download tool which will allow you to write the ISO image you just downloaded to a USB flash drive. You’ll need a minimum of a 4GB flash drive, and all the data on it will be erased.
Step 4: Prepare your Acer AS5552-3691 to install Windows 10. We suggest using a spare hard drive to keep things as clean an easy as possible. If you don’t have one, then use a partition tool to create a new partition on an existing hard drive.

Step 5: Reboot yourAcer AS5552-3691 and insert your flash drive or DVD. If it fails to boot from that device, then go into the BIOS and set the flash drive or DVD drive as the primary boot device.

Step 6: You’ll see a Windows logo, followed by a language selection – UK English should be selected. Then you’ll need to choose where to install Windows. If you’re using a spare hard drive, delete all partitions or simply choose an appropriate partition in which to install Windows 10. It will need to be formatted as NTFS, otherwise you’ll need to delete the partition and install it in the unallocated space afterwards.

Step 7: Keep an eye on the install as it will reboot your computer and if you don’t remove the DVD or flash drive it will boot from it again, and you could end up repeating Steps 5 and 6.

Step 8: Windows 10 will boot, ask you a few questions and then ask you to sign in with your Microsoft ID. You won’t need an activation key, but in case you’re asked, the windows 10 key is NKJFK-GPHP7-G8C3J-P6JXR-HQRJR

Step 9: When you finally get to the Windows 10 desktop, allow a bit of time for Windows 10 search for drivers for your Acer AS5552-3691. Initially on our test laptop, it seemed as though the graphics card drivers hadn’t been found and installed. However, after a few minutes this was all done in the background and the correct resolution set.
