    Ubuntu on USB with language screen

    Hi, I've been trying to get the advanced welcome page booting an Ubuntu 12.04 or 13.04 iso from USB, just as the Live CD does.

    I have tried Grub2 and Grub4DOS with these tutorials but I can't find any menu entry example to get the language screen.

    The only tutorial that worked as I wish was the one from RMPrepUSB, but takes a lot of time scanning for isos, is it possible to achieve it manually with Grub2/Grub4DOS?

    Thanks

    If Easy2Boot takes too long to enumerate the ISOs, then use the FASTLOAD feature. There are also other things you can do which are also mentioned in the tutorial.

    This is the syslinux boot. Some methods to make USB boot drives will make systems that skip it, or use another boot loader, for example grub2. I know two methods, that make USB boot drives with syslinux,

    - The Startup Disk Creator (usb-creator-gtk and usb-creator-kde) and
    - Cloning with dd (which is risky unless you use a tool to help selecting the correct target drive).
