I have an extra laptop ( Gateway LT40 Netbook with only 1 GB ram ) My question is this. Can i run Linux Mint 17.3 ISO on a USB without installing, it has Windows 7 now ? Iam a newbie here but i allready put the Linux Mint ISO on my USB for my Acer laptop. The only thing i had to change was BIOS boot order, that was very simple.
Thanks Chuck

You can also install and run it form the USB drive if it is large enough.

Remember that it is running form USB (Live or other wise) it will run slower that is it was on a HDD.

You may have to do the same thing on the Netbook as well.

Depending on the particular Mate distro you are using it may struggle on the netbook, and if so you could try Mate XFCE, or even something like Zorin which works well on low powered machines.
