Install Linux On A Flash Drive Without A CD

Tue Dec 21, 2010 3:41 pm

If you're a Windows or a Linux user, and you have a flash drive, or external hd, let me point out there's no need to keep buying blank CD's and burning Linux on each one, cause I just found this program called UNetbootin (It's a portable application), and it does all the work for you, all you need is an .iso image of the OS you want to run off the flash drive, or external hd then you can burn it to the drive, and boot into the OS from your flash drive, and you're good to go.

This program without a doubt will save you time, and money, and it's definitely worth a try. (I just tried gOS, don't like it, but it definitely works)

I'm not to sure, cause I only have 1 SD card which is for my phone, but I'm sure it'll work, and if not there should be other software out there you can use.
