Recommended Posts

I wonna buy a SDHC card to boot an alternative OS from (Ubuntu... or variant), because I don't want to wipe my HD so...

Will it be enough if I buy one with these specs : http://sandisk.com/Products/Item(2201)-SDS...mance_Card.aspx

It's a 4GB SDHC Ultra II, with read/write spead : 15MB/s

I think it's fast enough, what do you guys think??

Make sure that the system you're buying it for can boot from SDHC before buying.

Hell build in some 16G and a 8G SD card and readers internally in my EeePc 701 4G and installed Ubuntu-eee over the standaard 4G solidstate and the 16G SD card (the "./" on the 4G solidstate and the "/home" (noted installed no swap space) on the 16G SD card) this works just fine and gives me way more (harddisk) space.

On the internally buid 8G SD card i got BT3 and that boots and runs all so just fine.

If you want a fast running (installed OS) on your SD card just do not go for the cheap one's.

are you using a swap file instead?
