View Full Version : Making a persistent liveUSB netbook remix

August 8th, 2009, 06:05 PM

I'm not installing U. unto my netbook; I would just like to run it off my 8gig usb and have a persistent harddrive...

Do I boot it up from a second usb and then install it unto my 8gig usb?
Or.. I could partition my 8 gig so that it boots from one partition and then installs unto the other.

These sound like reasonable ideas to me. Are they easy to execute?

I'm not sure what it is your saying but if you want to do is rn ubuntu off your usb drive. In which case, just install unetbootin on your windows or linux machine. Use it to install ubuntu, and if you want to run ubuntu from your usb device, just press 'esc' when you first boot up. If you want to always run from usb (at at least, tell your computer to boot from usb first if present) you can go into bios (I think its f2) and reorganize your hard drive priority to usb first and hard drive second.
