Ubuntu is an operating system that can be installed on almost any computer and work perfectly. If our intention is to repair another computer, Ubuntu can also serve us perfectly in the face of many problems. But if we have never used it or our intention is not to install it on another computer, we can always create Live USB with the operating system developed by Canonical. A Live USB is a flash drive bootable from which we can start an operating system and make any changes we want, but will not be maintained once we turn off or restart the computer.
But if we already have Ubuntu, why do we want a Live USB? Well there can be a lot of chaos for those who come in handy. For example, always have a clean installation on a USB ready to run on any computer. In addition, if we want, we can also test other operating systems. The method we tell you about today is also a very quick process, so it always is better than using UNetbootin or Lili USB Creator, which both take theirs, as long as we don’t mind losing our work when shutting down or restarting the computer. It is true that the programs mentioned create better options, but they are not better if what we want is just a Live USB. Here’s how to create it in Ubuntu.
How to Create a Linux Live USB
The process is very simple and you just need to follow these steps:
- Right click on the ISO image you want to put in the Live USB and select Open with Disk Image Writer.
- Then we click on the drop down menu and select the drive of our Pendrive.
- In the window that appears, we choose Start restore …
- Then a window appears warning us that if we continue we will lose all data. If that’s what we want and we’re clear on, let’s click restore.
The process is very fast, so as I said before, if we don’t need the changes to be maintained and we need a quick option, this is the best. To run Live USB we just have to reboot and select the Pendrive we just created as the boot drive. That’s good, isn’t it?
