Create Ubuntu LiveUSB Windows

If you want to install Ubuntu on your netbook or your laptop which doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, or if you want a portable copy of Ubuntu to carry around, you can create a LiveUSB of Ubuntu which can be used in the same way as you use a CD/DVD.
Warning: Not all desktops support booting from USBs. Before creating LiveUSB please check if your system (where you want to install Ubuntu) supports LiveUSB installation or not. You can check on the company website if your PC supports USB boot. Almost all laptops and netbooks support LiveUSB feature, however many desktops don’t. You must also refer to this page before attempting installation.

Create Ubuntu LiveUSB on Windows
1. In order to create LiveUSB of Ubuntu using Windows you need a software called Unetbootin. Go to the website and download the Windows version of UNetbootin from here. It will prompt you to save or run it -- just save it. You won't have to install it, it will run directly from the downloaded file.
2. You, now, need to format your USB drive in FAT32 format. You can use the Windows formatting tool -- right click on the USB drive which you want to use as LiveUSB and select Format. Also note the Mount Point (Lable) of the drive (in my case it is F:), you will need it later.

3. Remove any other USB drive connected to your PC except for the one which you want to use for the installation.
4. Now, go to the download folder where you saved the UNetbootin. Clicking on the downloaded file will run the UNetbootin software. Once UNetbootin is running, select the Diskimage option and browse for the .iso file of the Ubuntu that you downloaded.

5 Now, under Type select USB Drive and then from Drive select the drive which you want to use for creating LiveUSB (in my case the USB drive was F:). Click OK and it will start preparing the USB drive.

6. It will show the below window upon successful creation of LiveUSB. Now, you can use this LiveUSB to test or install Ubuntu 11.04

\Warning: Be extremely careful in this section, selecting wrong Type or Drive may format/delete/damage your critical data. Carefully select the USB device which you want to use as LiveUSB.
