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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
