This is something I have found useful over and over again. It allows you to have fully functioning operating system that can be taken anywhere and used on any PC that has USB booting capability.

I'm trying to boot Xubuntu from USB Flash Drive on my old laptop Fujitsu-Siemens but it shows "Missing Operating system. Operating System not found". Although the Flash Drive works on my current laptop.
Can I make DOS USB Flash Drive with (x)Ubuntu Live CD on it?
I tried various windows programs to make a bootable USB, and Xubuntu Startup-disk without success.
I've just finished assembling my PC and I'm trying to install Ubuntu on it (there is no operating system on this machine). I downloaded Unetbootin on my Mac, downloaded the .iso image, and ran Unetbootin to put it on my flash drive.
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.
Linux Flash Drive
By Betty Rims
A Linux Flash Drive is an external hardware bootable device which can be used to install Linux OS into the host controller which is generally a PC. Linux is a multi-tasking operating system which is considered to be far more sophisticated & secured than any other operating system available in the market.
Ok, I saw many similar to mine, but could not find one with my specific situation. I currently have Windows 8. I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 to dualboot the computer. However, when I attempt to install Ubuntu 12.10, I just get a "No operating system found." I already attempted to burn the iso through Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool, ISO to USB, Linux Live. and no avail up until now.
I would like to have a setting, where Ubuntu Server is installed and booting from a flash drive (SanDisk Cruzer Fit 8GB), with two HDDs running in RAID1 and 4 drives running with RAID0 (only 1 drive at the beginning and adding up more over time).
