Default Dell Vostro Ubuntu USB install error - Operating System not found - 05-30-2017, 03:44 PM

In my quest to resurrect my Vostro A90, I finally managed to find an install of Ubuntu 8 from this site (old-releases.ubuntu.com. downloaded the PC (Intel x86) desktop CD version)

Then I grabbed unetbootin so I could create a bootable USB from my mac (I made sure to format it FAT32 from Disk Utility)


On the A90, I made the USB the primary boot device. However, I keep getting the no operating system found error. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Is there something wrong with the ISO file I'm downloading? Appreciate any pointers to resolve this. Thank you.

Doing this for the benefit of another soul that might want to resurrect their same machine. I ended up using Lubuntu 16.04 and it worked perfectly with the Vostro A90.
