I am trying to install lubuntu on a ASUS EeeBook X205TA
I got lubuntu-18.04-alternate-amd64.iso on another computer, it has the correct sha256sum.
I used "Startup Disk Creator" on Kubuntu to create a bootable usb.
Then I discovered that this notebook had a stupid BIOS. The only boot option was "Windows boot manager" or "disabled". It has no CD drive but it has 2 usb ports. Still, even with "Secure Boot" disabled there was no option to boot from usb.
Instead, there is a utility inside Windows 10, called "WinFlash". It offers 2 options : download the boot file from ASUS web site or open it.
Of course, my live usb stick has no iso file. I decided to remove the bootable stuff and to copy the iso file on it. Impossible.
umount /dev/sdb1 sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/disk mount: /media/disk: WARNING: device write-protected, mounted read-only. /media/kube$ sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/sdb1 /media/disk mount: /media/disk: cannot remount /dev/sdb1 read-write, is write-protected.
I've done many installs of various flavours of Ubuntu. It's the first time I'm so much stuck. Please help.
