I installed in my Slackware 13.1 with generic kernel 18.104.22.168-smp VirtualBox packages taken from SlackBuilds.org (acpica, virtualbox-ose and virtualbox-kernel). Then for testing purposes I installed in VirtualBox Windows XP using CD-ROM drive connected to USB port. Its a lot of fun to see Windows as an application in Linux!
I tried making a boot-able flash drive like described in the install guide, here, on the wiki.Using Unetbootin - did it - didn't boot from the flash drive (just doesn't work).I thought: Hei, I'll do it again maybe I did something wrong.No way - my flash drive is now 8MB (and it was a 32GB FLASH DRIVE!!).I tried everything, fdisk, diskpart in windows, Killdisk ...
I can't boot 10.10 from my SanDisk cruzer flash drive on my Macbook Pro. I made my flash drive from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-mac-osx. When I have the flash drive plugged in, I hold down alt when I restart, but nothing except Macintosh HD and a Recovery Drive (which isn't the flash drive) shows up. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
I have a Dell Dimension 4500 with Windows XP on it. I wanted to boot Ubuntu from a CD/DVD or my flash drive, but I can't boot it from the CD/DVD I created or the flash drive. The CD/DVD will not boot from the DVD drive (you can only view DVDs with this drive) or the CD drive (because it is a DVD). The computer does not recognize my flash drive as a removable drive.
just got dell latitude 3440 with ubuntu preinstalled
I want to install another OS
I tried to do it from CD, but the optical drive did not show in the boot options
so I then tried to do it from flash drive
the flash drive showed in boot options, and I set it to first option, but won't actually boot.
I tried out the flash drive on a windows computer, and it booted fine.
yes, I am inserting it in a U
I'd like to fully install Ubuntu 12.10 onto a 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive, not create a live USB but to treat the flash drive as an external hard drive. I've read it's possible and I know my computer can boot from it. However, it doesn't work when I try. I've booted a Live USB from another flash drive and installed Ubuntu onto the 16GB one.
After rummaging through the VirtualBox Virtual Machine Settings -- trying to find out how to use a host device (in this case a USB flash drive) in a VirtualBox SAS controller -- in an endless loop, I feel hopeless.
Here's my reason for the use of a system block device in a virtual machine:
You see, this VM is a 64-bit VM designed to emulate a 64-bit system on a 32-bit processor. Why?
I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 persistent on a usb flash drive using Linux Live usb creator http://www.linuxliveusb.com/ and everything went fine. I gave it persistent memory for the flash drive to store changes. Once I booted up from the drive, it took a long time to boot up and after it booted, I clicked live mode so it wouldn't affect my computer.
