How to install linux on an asus computer without a cd drive or a current operating system?
Q. My friend gave me her computer to try and fix and I'm kind of lost. This is an asus computer without a cd drive and no operating system. Windows was previously install and then was removed. I have a linux CD to try and install but am not sure how to connect my computer to this one to share the cd drive. Any help would be great. Thanks!

A. The simplest option is to install Linux from a USB drive; I don't know which variety of Linux you are planning to use, but Ubuntu has a good guide at the link below.

Good luck!
