    Ubuntu on Flash Drive

    I would like to install Ubuntu 14.04 on a flash drive. It is already downloaded on my computer. I then installed the universal installer. I am now confused. Please see attached image.

    Do not you have a Startup Disk Creator under System Tools, or what it is called in unity ?

    Yes

    I tried using it. Everytime I selected Ubuntu 14.04 from the Download folder, 12.04 would would be selected instead.

    Try moving your iso to another folder, for ex after creating a new folder under Downloads and make sure there is no .iso left in /Downloads.

    You may try UnetbootIn : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...ick#Unetbootin

    To note, I had to try with another usb drive, using usb-creator. The first one I had, although erased and 2GB, never worked.
