How to Create Ubuntu 11.04 Live USB On Linux


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.
It is recommended that you remove any other USB drive attached to your PC other than the one which you want to use here.
1. Run Startup disk creator. Go to System > Administrations > StartUp Disk Creator.

2. Select the USBDrive which you want to use as LiveUSB and click on the erase button and confirm. (Be careful while selecting the USB Drive, if you select any other USB drive connected to your PC, such as external hard-drive, you may end up losing data.)

3. Now click on the 'Other' button and browse the .iso file of Ubuntu 11.04 which you downloaded using the methods explained in Getting Ubuntu chapter. Once you browsed the .iso image using Other button, double click on the .iso file or click 'open' button and it will be added to the list.

4. Once again, click on the USBDrive from the list which you want to use as LiveDisc and click on the 'Make Startup Disk' button. It will start copying the files to the USB drive.

5. Once the process is complete you can remove the USB Drive and use it as as a LiveUSB to rescue data, test Ubuntu 11.04 on netbooks or to install Ubuntu on PCs.
