Hi, guys.

I’m here today to talk about how you can run Linux from a USB flash drive.

If you are just starting with Linux and you are not sure you want to install Linux on your PC, or you aren’t able to because it’s a shared PC, etc., you can run Linux from a USB flash drive.  You will just need some Linux distro iso, aUSBb flash drive, and the program Universal USB Installer.


1: Download Universal USB Installer from:

2: After the download, run the program and connect the USB flash to the PC.

3: On Universal USB Installer, chose the Linux distro and the usb flash drive.

Note: Universal USB Installer has an option to set a persistent file size for storing changes. You can chose the size to save any changes that you may do.

4: Lastly, click “create”.

I hope this post help you. Let me know what you think!
