Backup all your data and information before you begin install the new Operating System. To begin installation you will need to either use an External DVD drive or use USB installation instead. In most case we will need to make the USB bootable device for Netbooks as it is USB boot compatible. To create a bootable USB, you must first get a 8GB USB drive (All datas must be formatted) Formal USB Drive   The next step to continue would be to use an opensource software called Rufus to create the bootable USB. To download Rufus, visit the following URL : once there review the application and download it. Click on the small CD/DVD Rom image to load the iso and then the Start button to start the process.
