Default Is OSX only OS loadable directly onto Runcore? - 06-15-2009, 03:45 PM

Hi there ...

Just got a mini 9 last week, and have a 32GB Runcore en route. I've seen the guide on loading OSX directly onto a Runcore, and will probably end up at least trying the OSX route. However I wanted to noodle around w/ UNR a bit to see how I like it, and maybe try a few other things out as well.

I like the concept of being able to directly load an OS via the miniUSB port, is this possible with non-OSX systems? For instance, can I plug the Runcore into a machine (e.g. my mac desktop, ubuntu mini-9, etc) and install a fresh OS image?

If the OS you're using supports installation onto a removable disk, then you can do this. I know that Windows objects, but I have heard of folks running Ubuntu from a flash drive, so I assume it would work here as well.
