Default Question - Load 9.04 to new 32G ssd - 06-02-2009, 11:56 PM

Hello all;

I hope this is not too stupid a question. I have 9.04 nr on my flash drive and want to save my 8.04 that came with my 16g ssd from Dell. I have a 32G runcore ssd. I would like to take out my 16g and load the 9.04 on the 32g.

I don't have my A90 yet, 2 weeks, but I'm just waiting. If I put in the 32g with nothing on it, and connect and boot from my flash drive, will I be able to install from there?

I was originally going to put osx on it, but heck I don't really know why I would not just use all the goodies associated with Ubuntu.

Yes, put the empty 32gig into your system, and boot from your flash to run the install. Everything should be fine.
