    This installation of version 3.8 is taking *forever*! Almost an hour so far and it’s still on the install welcome screen. All I’ve done up to now is select the language (English) and clicked continue. And the install Dvd is merrily chuntering away. Yesterday I installed Lubuntu on the same hardware and it finished in about 30 minutes.

    10 minutes later and the next screen “Preparing to install Linux” has appeared. Mouse unresponsive, then responsive, then unresponsive again. Still waiting for the continue button to become live in order to click it. I’m not liking LL much yet…

    When do you change from UEFI to Legacy and disable Secure Boot? Before installation or after? Can’t seem to find any clear instructions for this. Reply appriciated.

      Changing boot sequence, changing to Legacy mode, and disabling Secure Boot ALL must be done before running the installation.

    Can anyone explain why I do not get the option to install alongside of Windows 10? I get either erase disc and install, Encrypt, and Something Else. Just these three options. How do I install for duel boot?
    I have tried the Something Else three times with C drive unchanged and with pre-partitioning (done from Windows OS before changing to Legacy and making USB first boot choice )to dedicate space for Linux, and every time when I hit Install I get a pop up that says “No root file system defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.”
    No, I am not even close to an advanced user, but Something Else was my only option to do a dual install. I have no clue what the pop up message is even hinting at despite spending most of yesterday doing searches on Google based on that message and reading all sorts of posts way over my PC dinosaur head.
    So, Linux Lite is not the user friendly OS it has been promoted to be then?
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Does anyone here have any idea why I have no option to boot alongside Windows 10 in my Linux Lite 3.8 installation? Spent the last two days trying to install this via USB with nothing but brick walls at every turn. I did the Win 10 defrag, pre-partitioned free space on the HDD for Linux, un-did the free space partition as well (using Mini Tool Partition Wizard from Windows 10 prior to attempting the Linux Lite install), Googled every topic I could find about Linux Lite install problems, yet every time I try to install (yes, I switched to Legacy first and arranged boot sequence to boot from USB first and made sure Safe Boot was unabled) , forced to use the Something Else option as the only recourse for a dual boot, after selecting the space to install Linux Lite on in the partition menu, I get ” No root file system is defined please correct this from the partitioning menu”. No, I am not an advanced user and I have no clue what this message even means. Every site I found this topic on went into solutions that involved opening terminals and entering codes and things way above my PC dinosaur noggin. None of the Linux Lite Installation Guides I’ve seen (including this one) mirrors what I’m seeing in my live session, despite having downloaded Linux Lite ISO from three different sources. So, any clue what I’m doing wrong, aside from trying to install this OS in the first place? Any help is greatly appreciated. Should I just stick with Windows 10 and forget Linux altogether?

    I tried to install this on my pIII machine 1ghz cpu 1gb of ram 80gb hdd, speed was very slow.

    Linux Lite is the lighter version of the Linux and basically used for direct loading from the Pendrive. I have tried it once but it’s not stable so I prefer to use the full version.

    The Linux lite installation technique you are discussing is so good to see. Whenever you are going to the process it really looks so easy. Because whenever a new user of Linux going to install Linux then they must go through this article once for the installation process.
