Let's get started!

Step 1: Getting the Programs

WARNING: You need to format your disk in order to continue!

First, open up LiLi. LiLi can usally be found in the start menu.

When LiLi is open, you need to tweak several options:

- Set the USB flash disk drive in the drive selector drop down.

- Choose the source of your Ubuntu image (you can download Ubuntu from there).

- Set up persistence (change the size to a size that you are comfortable with).

- Format your USB and deselect all the check boxes in step 4.

- If you need to tweak additional options, click the options button.

When all is set up, click the lightning icon and when it finishes, restart your PC to boot into the live USB!
