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.
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 am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my Acer TravelMate 4001LMi laptop (at present running Ubuntu 10.04). Trouble is, it will not even begin to boot from the live cd. It just goes straight to the grub screen. I have tried with various other live cd versions, even the old 10.04 one, same result. I tried F12 for boot options and selected the cd drive, same result.
So you want want to boot Linux, from a flash drive, on your Mac? If you're reading this, you probably already know it's harder than it should be. Old standbys like uNetBootin - while available for your Mac - do not create USB keys your Mac can actually boot. Don't worry. There's a simpler way – a GUI made specifically to get distributions like Ubuntu to boot on your Mac.
Hi everyone I have been trying to get the ubuntu cd to boot for the past 3days. I tried every solution using integrated graphics, redownloading etc. I also tried linux mint and that wont boot at all either. But Fedora and sabayon boot like no problem on my desktop.
I am trying to install Ubuntu 64-bit alongside Windows 8 32-bit. I have burned multiple discs with Ubuntu 64-bit and 32-bit and I mounted the .iso file to a USB flash drive. I went into bios and changed the boot preference to CD/DVD when I was attempting to boot from the DVDs and removable drive when I was attempting to boot from the flash drive.
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 live ubuntu 12.04 desktop on a usb flash drive. I've gone into my BIOS and changed the boot order so that it runs external drives first. On startup, when the flash is in, it will start to boot it. But, it doesn't do anything but give this message:

The underscore just flashes. I don't know what to do from here.
