No. The "NOOBS installer" software can only be (usefully) run from an SDHC card plugged into a Raspberry Pi - its purpose being to install (and, subsequently, re-boot into) one or more Operating Systems that the Pi can use. However, you can use your netbook to "install" NOOBS onto the SDHC card in the first place, instead of purchasing a card "pre-installed" with NOOBS.seanvll wrote:if i purchased a NOOBS could i install it on my netbook?
If you want to run Linux on your netbook that's not difficult to do. Try getting a Live CD version on a bootable USB stick.seanvll wrote:if i purchased a NOOBS could i install it on my netbook?
Technically his "netbook", could be an ARM based chromebook - but unlikelyDougieLawson wrote: Running NOOBS outside qemu is not possible because your netbook is an X86 processor and your RPi is an ARM processor and the two are entirely different.
What 'netbook' do you have ?seanvll wrote:if i purchased a NOOBS could i install it on my netbook?
Raspbian and KNOPPIX are both based on debian but other than that there is no realationship between them.theoscy wrote:You could, however would struggle to install it on your netbook. Raspbian is based on an ancient distro called KNOPPIX and knoppix can be installed, or booted live on a netbook.
