    Setting 'try Ubuntu' as default

    When booting into Ubuntu on USB I get asked if I want to 'try Ubuntu' or Install. I don't want to install as I am using this on different PCs. Can I do something to remove this question every time.

    I believe you need a persistent usb install.

    Yeah, annoying indeed. So I'll be following this thread to see if it gives a solution.

    Method 1 should be what you want.

    To bypass the try/install screen on a persistent install replace the contents of the file syslinux.cfg with:

    Code:
        default persistent
        label persistent
          say Booting a persistent Ubuntu session...
          kernel /casper/vmlinuz
          append  file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper persistent initrd=/casper/initrd.lz quiet splash noprompt --
    Boot time will be reduced by about a third.
