Ubuntu 10.10X64 Live on USB Question? Answered
As a project I decided to install ubuntu 10.10 X64 Live to my flash drive so I can take it around with me anywhere I go. I'm familiar with this operating system, but I don't have it on my home computer, I just wanted to put it on a usb. Anyway, I used Unetbootin ( http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ ) to put it on my drive. It boots fine. The only problem is that I don't think it installed to the usb. Changes that I have made don't seem to stay and drivers that I download don't stay either. Its sort of frustrating becsue while I'm familiar on how to use it, I'm not familiar on getting it to work.
Anyway, when I go to the boot menu and select the usb, it gives me several options: Default, Install Ubuntu, Boot from Hard drive, Install Ubuntu (to hard drive), and several others including repair. Now I first was clued into the fact it didn't install because it showed install as an option on this boot menu.
The problem is that I want ubuntu on the flash drive, portable, but I don't want it on my machine. The Unetbootin is great, but it doesn't give any instructions for after its installed the software. All it tells you is to reboot. I would like to keep using this software because I trust it, but I need to get this working.
CAN ANYONE WHO KNOWS UBUNTU OR HAS DONE THIS HELP ME????
P.S. ANY Advice would be helpful here!
