I just got a windows 8 computer and got a flash drive to back it up on because I didn't want to erase any flash drives I already have. I purchased a 32 gb flash drive because it was a good deal and I figured I could put YUMI on it and have my Windows 8 backup on there as well as various linux distros.
Trying out Linux should be easy; with the help of Linux Live USB Creator it is. Quickly get any Linux distribution to boot from your USB key, complete with a persistent mode for keeping applications and documents in place.
Or is putting the live image on there better, since you can modify content and have the option to install? Basically I want linux on a flash drive so whenever I want to do something with wget or whatever I can pop it in, boot to linux and have a go. I'm tied to windows because all my classes force me to use windows, so I can't really virtualize since one of my classes has me
I have recently purchased a Windows laptop with the intention of installing Linux on it. My question is about the existing Windows installation (note that as an ultrabook, my shiny new computer does not have a CD drive, so I don't know what the recovery media is).
Hello fellow Linux users! So lately I've been missing my games that sadly haven't been ported to Linux. I'd like to switch over to Windows, I'm buying a bigger HDD so I can dual boot because I really love my Linux. But, I can't get far because I have no Thumbdrive or DVD drive..
have'm building a computer within the next few weeks, and I'm finishing up the last few things. I want to have Linux and Windows available. I originally was going to go with only Ubuntu, but then I realized it would be easier to run games and stuff from Windows. I bought a 90GB SSD for a boot drive, this is big enough for windows, but it isn't preferred.
Before i start don't lecture me on the fact that fat32 is old and hasn't been updated for nearly 20 years. Right now i have sorted that, I am trying to install ubuntu Linux on to a 64GB flash-drive and it wants me to format to one of the ext file systems.
The problem is if i put the flash drive in to a windows PC i cant use it.
