View Full Version : Creating iso of currently installed Ubuntu version ?

January 21st, 2015, 09:36 PM
Hello everyone!

I updated to Trusty Tahr (14.04 LTS) last night, from a previous version of Ubuntu. Since the update process took place automatically, I don't have the iso file of Trusty Tahr. I would like to get its iso file so that I can make a bootable usb stick and install it in a friend's laptop. I don't want to download the whole thing again, so is it possible to create the iso from the OS itself ? I'm new to this field, so please feel free to correct me if you think I'm having any misconceptions.
Looking forward to your replies.
Thanks! :)

You just need to download it.

Also link on how to create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive, Windows or Ubuntu

Your install has updates and your specific configuration, so you would not want to use that to install to another user anyway.

And you should have a current copy on DVD or flash drive just in case you need to make repairs.
