can't copy iso to flash drive
New [newb] here.
I checked the 5 links from the "Similar Threads"
Don't know enough to know if they'll help,
but I may have a different problem.
I copied the ISO to my hdd, ultimate-edition-2.7-x64, 2.52GB.
I want to copy it to a 8GB USB flash drive,
& run it from the flash drive, like its portable.
Looking at the "Similar Threads" links,
it looks like I need to install the ISO,
to the USB drive.
The USB drive is formatted 3.5GB, ext3,
w/ a 512MB swap space.
The rest is formatted fat16, for portable storage.
I tried to copy the ISO to the USB drive,
but got an Error Mess, not having 'permission'.
Of course, this is windoz box, 7hp,
which means winblows can't even see the USB drive.
I want to start getting away from windoz,
& I figure a 'portable' Ubuntu install,
running on a bootable USB drive would give me an
alternate way to run linux on almost any box I find.
What say ye, oh masters of Linux?
