Using USB as Installation Media
 
(Cross-post from Ubuntu Forums)

I am trying to install Kubuntu through a USB key. All instructions that i've found require a computer already running Linux. I tried using the HP Drive Key Boot Utility, and then copying the contents of the Kubuntu iso to it, and booting from the USB, but it failed.

Is there any easy way to do this?

Thanks,

Not familiar with that HP utility. You may need to set the BIOS so that USB is a boot source before the hard disk. The iso file you downloaded would need to be expanded and the results placed on the USB drive.
