    Ubuntu 10.04 and Win 7

    I am trying to run ubuntu 10.04 from a usb drive like a live cd so I can test it before I use it. I have made my external hard drive active so that it will read, but i am not sure what to do next. I have put iso on the active partition however when I try to boot from the external hard drive it says boot mgr missing. Am I missing something ? Thanks for help

    An ISO is an image of a CD. If you have a program which can "burn an image" you could make a bootable CD to try Ubuntu. Just copying the ISO, to a USB drive or a CDR, does not help.
