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)
- Linux Mint
- 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.
Very useful project!
