Unetbootin does not have this functionality; it basically creates a Live-CD-on-USB.

Unetbootin is not part of the Fedora Project. Fedora has their own usb-creator application:
Why not try that instead?

You can create what you want with unetbootin. Then go to and see how to add in a casper or persistent feature.

If you want to create a Fedora stick you may wish to use the liveusbcreator from the Fedora site. It has persistence.
