Ubuntu :: Make An Live USB That's Bootable Without Having To Install Qt?
Mar 21, 2011
how to make an ubuntu live USB that's bootable, without having to install qt? I've looked at the ubuntu guides on the matter but they either seem to be out of date, incomplete, or tell you to use unetbootit that requires qt. It seems silly to have to install hundreds of MB of qt on my tiny eeepc just to make a bootable usb.
I just downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 while using the 8.10 live cd. I was planning to burn it to a disc, but I forgot all about the live cd issue. So is there anyway I can burn Ubuntu 9.04 without having to download it to a real os. Or can I make a bootable usb with the live cd of 8.10.
how I can install and make bootable a usb stick. I have tried multiple walkthroughs on this subject and not one of them has worked, i am trying to do this via windows, i cant get any workable wifi drivers for linux i have an atheros wifi card. the closest i have come to getting the usb to work is the splash screen then it freezes and this was with linux live usb creator 2.0 it doesn't matter which ones i've tried i can't get them to work no matter what version i try to use. it's driving me mad.
i want the usb to boot without having a hardrive present in the computer. i just got a possible driver that will work for my wifi card and i will put that on the stick too then install it when i get the usb stick to boot into linux. i honestly dont know why there are so many walkthroughs on this subject that dont work it's silly. oh and besides bookmarking each post i make where is the button that links you to your own posts without having to manually search them out?
I understand that one can easily make a bootable USB from a live CD installer. But instead of burning a DVD, I'd like to make a bootable USB from the oss 11.3 DVD iso file. Note: I just want to make a bootable USB, not to install 11.3 on USB. ( There are many reasons to do that, e.g., USB is much easier to carry, and also reuse later for new versions. ) But it seems there is no instruction to do that.
I have a Dell Mini 9 with only Ubuntu installed, I want to install Windows XP also but I don't have and can't get an external CD drive, so I need to make a windows installation from the usb.All the tutorials I found use windows to make the usb bootable, how can I make the same from linux?
The thread's title is very eloquent:I have a Windows 7 ISO image and I would like to "burn" it on a bootable USB pen in order to install it on a netbook.Obviously I am on openSUSE, and all I read so far was instructions to burn an opensuse or any linux distros (the "dd" tales)
I finally got this thing exactly how I want it with all sorts of tools,... I would like to know how to make a live install cd so I can share with others and put on other computers.. Like be a as clear and specific as you can.. should I leave the install file there on the main desktop too?
I am trying to make Liveusb with persistence i downloaded live gnome version which is in .iso format i also downloaded win32diskimager mentioned on this page Live USB stick - openSUSE but it only .img files i also tried unetbootin ,there is no option for 11.2 version my laptop doesn't have cd/dvd drive so to install on hardisk i have to do it by usb,so i thouht of going for live usb. are there any alternatives
I am using osx on my macbook wanting to create a bootable ubuntu usb pendrive so that i can install ubuntu on my hp laptop. Is anyone aware of any similar tools for osx such as Unetbootin?, or how i can go about creating a bootable live usb.
I'm trying to install from the Live CD. I read the sticky about needing a /boot and a / partition. I think that sticky applies to me but I'm not sure; once the Live CD loads, I click the "Install to Hard Drive" icon on the desktop. It thinks for awhile but ultimately doesn't display anything.What I'm not sure about is how exactly I go about making those partitions. My current HD is a Ubuntu system (Karmic Koala), and its network slowness has prompted me to try FC12. I've backed up everything already, I don't need to preserve anything on the existing drive.
I'm looking for the easiest way to get FC12 installed. Should I fool with the partitions? I just download a different install CD i.e. a non-Live one? If so, which one? Do I need all 5 or so CD images? I don't have a DVD burner so downloading the DVD isn't an option. I'm comfortable working from a Linux command line once the system is working, but I don't have much experience "close to the metal" i.e. actually getting a system up and running.
This is the first time that I try to install Fedora 11 to my Cd-driver-less notebook. I try to boot from my USB stick it did not work. For me, only feasible solution is to boot from HDD.
However, how do I create bootable HDD from Fedora 11 live CD? I have already downloaded and burnt Fedora-11-i686-Live.iso to a CD. Since I cannot boot from my CD, I need to boot from the HDD. But how?
Also some additional info: I have already formatted my notebook's HDD by hooking it to my PC. So I can only access my notebook's HDD from my PC (winXP installed) As far as I can guess, I need to partition and format my notebook's HDD based on fedora's requirements. (I do not know how?) And copy some boot and installation files to these partitioned disks. (don't know neither)
Making a live CD using tools such as livecd-creator seems like a good solution to create a bootable read-only image to install on Compact Flash. My goal is to prevent failure due to write cycle limits of Compact Flash memory. A secondary goal is to have the live CD available for troubleshooting. However, Usenet postings indicate challenges in making the live CD image on CF bootable. Has anyone succeeded in doing this?
I know how to make a bootable Ubuntu disk on a USB but I want to know how can I make a windows cd bootable on a usb using Ubuntu. I only have Ubuntu installed on my computer but I want to make a small partition with Windows XP in it and I have the Windows XP CD and ISO but I dont know how to make a bootable USB in Ubuntu...
I am trying to make Ubuntu 11.04 USB using Arh linux I downloaded the CD iso and dd'ed it to the USB, it does not work How to make it using the 'normal' liunx tools (dd etc) and not the GUI USB maker ?
How can I create a multi bootable (with menu) cd/dvd that contains a number of live cds? Is there any "easy" way of doing this? Isolinux is the way to go I guess, but is there any tool available for this?
I need to install windows on my netbook in order to run some programs I need for school. I currently have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on here and am trying to make a bootable windows 7 usb. How I can do this?
I am trying to make a bootable usb with ubuntu 10.10. I want to wipe my hddn and install ubuntu 10.10 and win7 (dual boot). I cant use cds cause my cd drive is broken so usb is my only way. When I have created the usb it doesn't work properly. This is what happens when I start the comp. with the usb:

I have tried to make the usb in both ubuntu and win7 with the same results. I have created a working usb boot before but with an older version. I have come across this problem sometime ago when I tried to burn kubunt on a cd. Think it was the 10.04 version.
I'd like to make a bootable usb that can save more than 4gb of changes, but I don't see a way to use anything other than FAT format when using the disk creator. I can format the hard drive in ext, but creator always reformats in FAT.
