Universal USB installer (from PenDriveLinux) is a good choice.....and there's demonstration screenshots, too!

In step #2, browse to the location of the Puppy slacko 6.3.2 ISO you downloaded, and make that the 'target' for installation.


If you happen to have an optical drive, another way to do this would be the traditional way. Burn the ISO file to a CD, boot from the CD, then once in 'Live' mode, use Puppy's built-in Universal installer to install to your USB stick. Puppy has loads of 'wizards' & 'tooltips' to guide you through the process.

We usually recommend the use of this small utility from TeraByte Unlimited; Burn CDCC:-

This is the direct download link, and will download a zip file. Simply unzip (anywhere you like; it doesn't matter where it sits), and click on the .exe file. You can't go wrong with this; it does one thing, and one thing 'burns' an ISO file to an optical disc. It's as near 'idiot-proof' as it's possible to get.

Then power-off. Re-start your machine, and immediately go into the BIOS and make sure that the CD/DVD drive is top of the boot-order.....though you might have problems with Win 10, since it's UEFI, SecureBoot, and GPT-formatted.

Let us know how you get on, please. Once you get that first Puppy up-and-running, any subsequent Pups are a walk in the park, since there's all sorts of quick'n'dirty ways to get Puppy onto a USB drive from within Pup itself.

I'm going to make one recommendation, however. You might want to consider Tahrpup 6.0.5 instead. The current Slacko has been proving somewhat problematic trying to get it to boot from a USB; it often 'times-out', and says it can't find the Puppy files. Tahrpup is a lot more forgiving, and is one of the most stable & easy-to-use Puppies there is at present.

I'm not trying to change your mind for you, but I would like your first 'taste of Puppy' to be a good one..!
