Installing Maverick

My 3-year old laptop’s DVD drive no longer works correctly, so I had to find an alternative method to install the fresh out of the oven Maverick Meerkat.

So it’s USB. First I tried unetbootin but it seemed not installing the bootloader properly. Since I’m not familiar with GRUB2 it would’ve been extra workaround for me.

Fortunately there was a handy tool provided with Ubuntu itself. It’s usb-creator. A similar tool can be seen in Fedora too.

Anyway, it looks like unetbootin is no longer effective with later distros.
