    Re: Theme on Bootable USB

    It depends on how your USB was made. If made using UNetbootin and similar syslinux type tools, editing syslinux.cfg or txt.cfg similar to the way you edited grub.cfg on your main computer grub.cfg...
  2. Re: Unable to create "Persistent" Ubuntu 20.04

    If you are usin the stick to replace your hard drive then ActionParsnip's suggestion to make a Full install to USB is probably better than using a Persistent install, however a Full install can not...

    Did you know that instead of just cleaning everything up with Disks, you can click the three lines upper right, select "Restore Disk Image", select your ISO and Disks will finish making a bootable...
  4. Re: Unable to create "Persistent" Ubuntu 20.04

    Just to confirm:
    Created a persistent USB using YUMI-2.0.7.1, formatting was FAT32, MSDOS partition table, (GPT would not work), made casper-rw 1GB.
    Booted the drive and made some changes to test...
  5. Re: Unable to create "Persistent" Ubuntu 20.04

    Perhaps alok8 is using YUMI because he wants to multiboot a lot of OSs. Multiboot can be done with Full installs but not as quickly as with YUMI or Ventoy.

    Come to think of it Ventoy might be an...
  6. Re: Unable to create "Persistent" Ubuntu 20.04

    Yes, just rename the casper-rw file. Not the folder. You may need to be root.
  7. Re: Unable to create "Persistent" Ubuntu 20.04

    If USB is made using YUMI BIOS, (YUMI-2.0.7.1), it will not boot in UEFI mode. Suggest using YUMI BIOS/UEFI, (YUMI-UEFI-0.0.2.3), it boots in either mode. Only problem is that persistence is limited...
  8. Re: Unable to create "Persistent" Ubuntu 20.04

    What version are you using, BIOS or BIOS/UEFI? (2.0.7.1 or 0.0.2.3)
  9. Re: Flashing external SSD to boot with Sata - USB

    Oldfred:

    Are you booting the ISO's on the SSD toram?

    The 20.04 file system check takes me up to 3 minutes booting USB 2, when I switch toram, it takes 3 seconds.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Having issues making a bootable USB for 20.04 LTS

    When I get that error I reinstall grub


    sudo mount /dev/sdxy /mnt

    sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sdx


    Where sdxy is my EFI boot partition.
  11. [SOLVED] Re: How can I prevent third-party apps from accessing my personal files ?

    You can make an encrypted partition, or put them in an encrypted zip file, 7zip works well for that.
  12. Re: Flashing external SSD to boot with Sata - USB

    Mkusb is the best tool for making a Persistent USB, however I am wondering why you prefer a Persistent USB to a Full install USB?

    Comparison between Persistent and Full install USB

    Re: Howto make USB boot drives

    Smaller to download than the Ubuntu ISO but contains a Full 20.04 install.
    Easy and quick to flash to USB disk from Windows or Linux. I used Rufus.

    [ubuntu_studio] Re: How to install studio on usb

    A couple of my computers are only seven years old but are BIOS boot only.
    The GPT - UEFI (non CFM) do not work on BIOS only computers.
    Rufus might need to be run MBR - BIOS or UEFI.

  16. Re: any known issues with encryption on USB memory sticks?

    Often I install a Live System to the target USB and boot toram. I am then able to install to the same disk which would be sda. The BIOS/UEFI booter can be created booting in BIOS mode, EFI system...

    Yes, sda if only one drive plugged in.

  20. [ubuntu] Re: Having issues making a bootable USB for 20.04 LTS

  24. [ubuntu] Re: Having issues making a bootable USB for 20.04 LTS
