    USB stick flash drive

    I want to learn how to make a USB flash drive and a live USB like a live CD with Ubuntu. And how to install Ubuntu .iso from a USB stick on the hard drive. I'm really new at this so please explain it like you would to a young teen. Thank you.

    Some links that will probably explain it better.
    The Ubuntu site you download from has instructions for both Windows & Linux.
    Many use unetbootin or pendrive if standard instructions do not work.

    Also instructions for CD/DVD or USB

    Write image or burn image not copy ISO as one large file to CD.

    Some have issues with USB3 ports and some have issues with certain brands of flash drives.
