Both options should work, but in this tutorial we choose 'Try Ubuntu without installing' option. Then the files will be loading. After a while, the following picture should appear.

Note

During this process the screen may go black, please be patient. Do not do anything until your LattePanda displays the following screen.

This is the Ubuntu Desktop. Then double-click the icon on the desktop whose name is 'Install Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS'. After the double-click, the installation will begin. A screen like the picture below will appear.

Choose your default language and continue.

Check the box to install third-party software, and then continue. This will ensure the common plugins are installed so everything can run smoothly.

Choose the best option for you. The options may look slightly different on your screen, but normally the third option (Erase disk and install Ubuntu) would be the most appropriate. There will be a small window to confirm that changes can be made to your disk. Please click continue.

Choose your time zone and click continue to proceed.

Select your keyboard layout. If you're unsure of what it is, you can use the detect keyboard layout option. Follow the instructions on screen and it should be relatively simple. Click continue.

Fill out your details to continue.

Please be patient and wait for the installation to complete. Then you will be asked to restart in order to complete installation.

Wait for your LattePanda to restart and boot the Ubuntu, then enter your password to login. Your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS should be fully functional on your LattePanda. Enjoy it!
