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.

Hands-on:

1: Download Universal USB Installer from: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/

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!

  1. I did the same thing in my laptop having window 10 but it is showing a problem “probably a buggy MP report”
    Please suggest some solution

  2. Yes thank you! this is just what I needed

  3. Very Informative. But can it work on window 8.1 and window 10?
