Never heard of endless Linux or linpus, but whatever it is, it looks pretty obscure
I would actually suggest you install a distribution that people actually use instead, if you really want to try Linux. Most Linux distributions are free anyways, and if you don't like it you can always install windows
Check out Ubuntu, and maybe also manjaro (since that looks like a gaming computer from the bezels)
If you want to try out linpus for some reason, it shows that you're on a liveCD, not a full install btw, try ls to see if there's any hints on installing
Edit: Apparently outdated info above ... see Distrowatch:
Linpus Linux is a Fedora-based operating system created by the Taiwanese firm Linpus Technologies Inc. Linpus was designed specifically to fully support the Asian market
The Acer Aspire One and Norhtec Gecko netbooks come with Linpus Lite Linux pre-installed
Anyway what you're seeing is the Terminal - so either Grub (or whatever Bootloader it's using) is not properly configured or an install without an DE.
Solution: Wipe HDD clean (you should always do that if you buy something used) and install another OS.
That usually just a thing of going into the BIOS Settings and changing the boot order (with the Stick already attached) - as in the HDD being in line before the USB-Ports.
... Plug it into your Aspire One, press power, press F2 at the ACER screen, and navigate to 'Boot' option. Then, press F6 to bring 'USB HDD' to #1. Then, Navigate to Quit, and select Exit Saving changes.
Otherwise it's possibly another issue related to the type of stick/port used.
You need to enable USB boot form BIOS and press F12 while booting then you can select the USB or HDD.
And as for Endless OS its pretty bad IMO so I replaced it with Arch.
if he wants to try endless, I would download it and reinstall it.
linpus is not related to endlessos as far as I can tell. linpus is a Linux targeted for low end systems and offers a very simpler interface.
most any distro should work on that thing.
That is not an error. Some people just can't get over the idea of having super fancy GUIs. If your friend is new to the game starting with something like Manjaro might be a good idea.
