Hello. I am new to Linux and I would like to download a version of Ubuntu or Mint onto a 4 GB flash drive and then install the OS onto a laptop computer. The computer I have has no internal hard drive which is why I want to run the operating system from the flash drive itself.
How do I perform this task? Also, what is the distribution best for doing this?
I have encountered an error while attempting to convert a formatted flash drive into a bootable medium containing Tails Linux 0.21. I have attempted to make the flash drive bootable by the following means:
I am trying to make a liveboot usb of Linux Mint. I used the startup disk creator and it made an additional (unmountable) filesystem on my hard drive (Linux Mint MATE 64-bit) anyone know what it is and what it's for? I am trying to make a live boot, similar to a live boot CD but on a USB so it is read/write, not just read.
Hello. I have been here before, and I was wondering if you can install Linux Mint 15 on a USB flash drive. Not putting the .ISO on and installing to your PC HDD, actually putting it on the flash drive so you can take all your files, settings, e.t.c everywhere you go, and, like me, not having to worry about your hard drive. And if I can, what is the ideal size drive for Mint?
I am new to Linux, but I've made some progress. I have been able to create bootable Linux-mint OS on a flash drive, a dvd and an external SSD. Every one of them works fine on my laptop and my friend's desktop. They won't boot to my desktop (except in compatibility mode).
I installed Linux Mint 8 on my flash drive, but how can I boot Linux to run on startup? I do not know how to run Linux or, is my computer just to boot Windows Vista and I hate Vista. How can I boot Linux on my flash drive?
