I'm following a tutorial to boot Linux from usb3.0.

I stumbled across this tutorial: http://evilshit.wordpress.com/2012/06/29/how-to-install-ubuntu-server-on-a-usb-3-0-stick-and-boot-that-stick/

In the last section (configuration), it says to open up terminal and go /etc/.../module

I do this and add the following lines as the tutorial says to:

  • xhci_hcd
  • usbhid
  • hid
  • usb_storage

Now it says to save the file, but I don't know how?

Here is a picture: http://i.imgur.com/b1LK0LE.png


In nano use "WriteOut" (CtrlO) to save the file.

  • And how did you respond to that? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 18 '13 at 1:09
  • Yeah, I'm not sure how. Sorry for all the questions. I'm new to this. Got to start somewhere. – Bradley Mitchell May 18 '13 at 1:13
  • Press Enter to accept the current filename, or use the other keys on the keyboard to edit it first. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 18 '13 at 1:14
