Question Can iso images for OS instalation boot from USB Flash Disks?


I have downloaded Kubuntu 12 64bit iso image.

But except from burning it to cd, can i put it on a USB Flash Disk and boot from there?

It has to be uncompressed inside the Flash Disk?

System Info: VAIO VGN-Z41MD with Intel P8700

There is also a utility named unetbootin. It has a GUI interface.

Wait a minute, what are all those commands required? If i install it through USB i wont get the graphical install like i do through CD ISO? I ll have to know a list of commands with no internet access nothing?

I want to install it into the C just instead burning a cd to install from there , install it form usb steak

not have the os in the usb stick and boot each time from there. sory if i was missunderstood

What is C?

It will be just like booting from CD. If the downloaded iso has a GUI installer, you will get a GUI installer.

no, the install procedure will be the same with cd or USB flash disk.
we are just helping you to prepare the flash drive as an installation media...

nevermind the guide I have suggested in my previous post, just go for UNetbootin (as suggested above too)...
