I have just got a pre owned computer that has been wiped. I'm really wanting to put Linux mint on it as the OS.

I have a tails usb that I use to access tor and was wondering if anyone knows how I can burn Linux mint to a separate usb through tor. I really don't want to have to download windows.

Many thanks in advance.

Yes, you should be able to do this.

  1. Start up Tails on your PC
  2. Download the desired ISO
  3. Install software to create a bootable USB stick (e.g. unetbootin) (See: https://tails.boum.org/doc/first_steps/additional_software/index.en.html)
  4. Plug in second USB drive and "burn" the ISO on it... or real burning on a DVD with the preinstalled brasero is also possible (if you've got a DVD-drive).
