Creating a Bootable USB for Ubuntu

There are multiple tools to create a bootable USB to install our new operating system. In this case, we recommend our article on how to use Ventoy to create a bootable USB drive.

Steps to Install Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS

Once the computer has booted with the USB created in the previous step, you should select the desired language from the menu on the left and then click “Install Ubuntu“.

The next step is to select the layout of your keyboard, i.e., the language of the keyboard layout, so that all keys are detected correctly with the right language.

Since this is a basic guide, at this point, we will select “Erase disk and install Ubuntu” and then click “Install Now“. For advanced users, this step may involve creating partitions, configuring LVM, etc.

It will ask for confirmation of the changes, and we will click “Continue“.

We select our time zone. In this case, “Madrid“.

In the next window, we fill out the form to create our user.

Now, we just have to wait for the operating system to finish installing.

Once finished, click on “Restart Now“.

Before completing the restart, it indicates that we must remove the bootable USB so that the installed operating system starts upon reboot.

This is the login screen. Click on the user you configured earlier:

Enter the password and click the “Enter” key.

We have now logged in and can start using Ubuntu. As you can see in the left sidebar, we have default applications such as the Firefox browser, email client, music player, office suite, and app store, among others.
