Lightbulb Tried Ubuntu10 Startup Disk Creator to install Ult ED26


I just tried UB10's Startup Disk Creator under Admin drop down to install Ultimate Edition 26 and it worked like a charm. Now I have this distro. on a USB stick and can install it for friends rather than via disk. Also helpful for those with netbooks who do not have a CD/DVD reader. It was surprisingly painless and very fast. I am trying to get away from this clutter of CDs all over the place. regards

I'd have to agree with you. With prices and size increases of USB jump drives the way they are now, it's the smartest, fastest way to boot a live system.

I guess this is not a linux question.

I'll ask one then on your behalf.

Any other places for such info?

jefro replies.

Sure, one place is pendrivelinux.com

Two main programs are also common to most users here. Liveusbcreator and unetbootin.
