if its the first time ur starting up you have to set the resolution... once you do you wont need to again

Okay.. but whÿ does it not install? It just starts up Linux right away, and does not have a install process as in the video...?

If you copied the contents of the distro.iso to e you are all set (no need to install) If on the other hand you want to run Stardust as an installer burn the stardust.iso to cdr-w and boot that.

I have installed both pro & home (many times in the last couple of days :lol: ) by just copying over the contents of distro.iso. I only needed to install from stardust as I wanted to do a native install on f.

I hope that helps.
