Resurrect an old PC with Linux

August 2 2012

Get the know how to take your old PC and give it a new life. There a multitude of Linux distros out there, but today Leo & Iyaz took a look at Ubuntu and Puppy Linux.

Instructions:
Pick a Linux distro and download an ISO. We featured Ubuntu, Damn Small Linux, and Puppy Linux.

Install your ISO to a bootable device.
How to create bootable CD: Mac OS X Instructions | Windows 7 Instructions.

How to create a bootable USB key:
There are two easy options to create a bootable USB key and both are free. We recommend UNetbootin, which is cross platform, but we had issues with the OS X version. Alternatively, there is the Windows-only Pendrive Linux.

Boot your PC into Linux by accessing the boot menu. You might have to click F12 or something similar. Enjoy your distro.
