The easiest way is to boot up Ubuntu CD and use Ubuntu's very own
"Startup Disk Creator" to put Ubuntu to a pendrive.
With a LiveCD, the worst you have in Ubuntu to do is to reboot and try
I just tried. According to what appeared on-screen, all went well ;/
BUT it would not boot :<
Not sure it's worth my time as it makes on screen comments about "persistent
store" wheick likely means it creating on of those "live installs" -
explicitly what I do *NOT* want.
Yes, the make-a-boot-disk tool just creates live/install media. No use
to me, either.
However, it should boot, even so. If it does not, have you checked
that your BIOS is set to try booting from USB /before/ it boots from
the hard disk?
Does your BIOS actually support booting from USB?
YES and YES
I also verified that I could boot by using a USB copy of
Porteus [essentially a Live-only derivative of a Slackware
Also note that even if it does, you must use a motherboard-chipset USB
port. The BIOS knows nothing about add-in USB cards and will almost
certainly not boot from a device plugged into one of those.
If your BIOS cannot boot from USB, or you can only use a port on an
add-in card, then the Plop boot manager will help you. I just today
posted a link to it in reply to a comment from Colin Law. If you can't
find that, look on www.plop.at/.
