Can the Beaglebone Utilize Unbuntu and How DoYou Load The Image?

Good Morning All,

I’ve went to all the recommended sites, but using a windows capable laptop and a 4 or 8Gbit of flash drive I load the image, but instead of using the full 4Gb of space, the image only sequesters 117 MB, which exceeds the Ubuntu image space. Please advise what I should do? New to Linux. Thank you.

Which image did you try to install to your flash drive? And how did
you try to flash it?

If you used my demonstration image located at:

I'm sorry I only supports linux installs, so in a windows environment
you'd have to use vmware/virtualbox and install something like ubuntu
into a virtual machine..

Regards,
