How can I install Tiny Core Linux on my laptop?

vishal August 1, 2011

I have download Tiny Core Linux from the official site. I searched on the official site, but could not find a solution for my actual problem.

How can I make a bootable USB stick and how can I install this Linux distribution?

My Laptop configurations are RAM: 2 GB, HDD: 256 GB, DVD-RW, USB-slot available.

    I use UNetBootin to burn my ISO images, it supports burning to a USB.

    Once you burn the image to your USB, you'll need to configure your BIOS so that it boots to the USB and not your HDD. To do so, press the "delete" button AS SOON AS THE SYSTEM STARTS. If that doesn't work, restart and look for the small text indicating which key launches you into the BIOS setup.
    More information on changing the boot order:

    Once you are in there change the first one to "USB" or "USB/FLASH". Make sure the second is "HDD". Save and reboot and you should be able to install from the USB. Once it is installed, change the boot order back to the way it was before and profit!
