View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu Copy HDD install to bootable usb pen

August 27th, 2009, 04:50 PM

I have quite a complex install with various apps running etc.

It would be great if I could drag my whole install from the HDD onto a USB stick and make that bootable.

ie. If my HDD dies or I need to temporarily run on another computer I can just run it from the USB pen.

Basically I need to make a custom bootable USB Ubuntu with my packages, programs and files.

And also if possible have a custom install option (like the one which is on the linux live persistent boot from cd) on the bootable install to allow me to to do my custom install to either a local/network HDD or another USB pen.
