UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file.


  • The current version has built-in support for automatically downloading and loading the following distributions, though installing other distributions are also supported:
  • Ubuntu (and official derivatives)
  • Debian
  • Linux Mint
  • openSUSE
  • Arch Linux
  • And many more

  • Does not recognize NTFS formatted USB devices, so installing a DVD ISO ( > 4G) is out of question.

  • I couldn't get this software to work properly. I currently have Ubuntu as my OS and after the download it wasn't saved as an executable. I went into the personal settings and allowed it to run as an .exe. However, then I was presented with another error, "7z not found!? "This is required for either install mode.Install the "p7zip-full" package or your distribution's equivalent." I have no idea how to correct this issue after several hours of research; I've given up! Overall, a great concept that doesn't work "right-out-of-the-box" for the average user using Ubuntu/Linux already.

  • Does not work. Not able to discover any of my USB sticks.

  • If you are looking for something that will lock up you computer and help you lose data, then this is it.
