Last night I had the pleasure of making my very first bootable Ubuntu USB flash drive. The reason I made this new Ubuntu USB flash drive was because I wanted to have a real “portable” linux system that I can run everywhere.
Where, I got it up and running in just about 5 minutes (minus the fact that I had to download the ISO file). Ubuntu 9.10 ran flawlessly on my ASUS UL30Jt laptop, everything worked out of the box, the wireless, graphics, sound, and even my volume keys!
Anyways, let me show you how to make your own bootable Ubuntu USB flash drive. I will show you the way to make your USB flash drive “persistent”.
Persistent USB flash drive means that you will also be able to use your USB flash drive as a storage device so you can customize your USB flash Ubuntu and update it with new programs, not just a live CD Ubuntu.
