-Needed-
2g min usb for installation of iso

lili usb creator - http://www.linuxliveusb.com/en/home
minitool partion wizard - www.partitionwizard.com


-steps for live testing-
1) use lili usb creator to install the iso onto a 2g min usb
a) select the RIGHT usb drive lol
b) then select the iso that your going to test
c) i personally only have format the usb selected but you can install the other crap but i dont lol
d) click the lighting bolt to start click the oks lol

2) insert the usb with iso on it, to your laptop with it off

3) start the laptop into the boot options (f12 for me) select the usb with iso

TEST EVERYTHING YOU CAN, root hardly works here and no data is saved...

-steps for installation-
1) format your usb or hhd partion with minitool partion wizard to either ext3 (most root availible) or ntfs (for use with usb drive ?music?)

2) use lili usb creator to install the iso onto a 2g min usb
a) select the RIGHT usb drive lol
b) then select the iso that your going to use after tested for the best one
c) i personally only have format the usb selected but you can install the other crap but i dont lol
d) click the lighting bolt to start click the oks lol

3) turn your laptop insert the usb with the iso and the usb or external or even the internal if you want to do something crazy but you will format your windows or stock os! i use a external hdd as in my vid..

4) start your laptop enter your boot options (f12 for me) select the usb with the iso

5) select to install
a) select the partion that you set up earlier (if you dont see it detect devices ext3 = linux)

You should probably mention that the android x86 builds are generally limited in their hardware support.
Most people aren't idiots, but it only takes one to ruin it for the rest of us.

I am confused.

I'm trying to download LiLi. I click on the download link here but it takes me here. Clicking the "Download LinuxLive USB Creator" in the second link takes me back to the first.

Am I not clicking the correct link?
