Applications to Create A Bootable Linux USB Flash Drive

Posted by : Rahmat Ade Saputra
For netbook users may have difficulty to install Linux on a netbook because netbooks do not have CD-ROM/DVD-ROM in general. But do not worry because there are applications that can make a bootable linux USB flash drive so you can install Linux on Your netbook through a USB flash drive.

Here are some applications to create a bootable linux USB flash drive:

LiveUSB Install
LiveUSB Install is third party Live Linux USB Creation tool created by Krasimir S. Stefanov. It can be used to install a Live Linux distribution of your choice on a thumbdrive from ISO, CD/DVD, or torrent download. Other unique features include the ability to customize the syslinux.cfg file, use WinGrub, or write an IMG file to the flash drive. LiveUSB Install was written in python and will create a Live Linux USB from within Windows or Linux, so it is an optimal choice for those who prefer not to use Windows.

XBOOT
XBOOT is yet another neat little Multiboot ISO USB Creator. It is a Windows based application that can be used to create a Live Multiboot USB or even a Multiboot ISO file that can then be burnt to a CD/DVD. XBOOT supports many Linux Distributions and Utilities, and allows you to use your choice of a Grub or Syslinux bootloader. Also included is a built in QEMU emulator (enabling you to boot an ISO from within Windows).

YUMI
YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer), is the successor to MultibootISOs. It can be used to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more. Contrary to MultiBootISO's which used grub to boot ISO files directly from USB, YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device, and reverts to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary. Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Multiboot Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes.

SARDU
SARDU is another nice Windows based Multiboot USB Creator that can also be used to create Multiboot CD/DVD's. Created by Davide Costa, SARDU enables you to create a Multiboot UFD containing your basic essential Utilities, Antivirus, and Windows XP/7 Installers. On top of that, SARDU offers the built in ability to Defragment your USB Drive, and burn an ISO to CD/DVD.

UNetbootin
UNetbootin is a Live USB creation tool that can be used to create a Live Linux USB flash drive from an ISO. Many Linux distributions are supported out of the box with custom install options available for Linux distributions that are not. It is important to mention that Live Linux USB flash drives created with this tool, do not currently utilize a persistence feature. The resulting USB Linux install will function just as it does from a CD. By default you will not be able to save and restore your changes. One nice feature of UNetbootin is that the tool is offered for Windows and Linux

MultiSystem
Multisystem is an awesome tool created by LiveUSB.info, that works similar to our Windows based MultiBootISOs USB creator, but was created for use within Linux. It also uses Grub2 instead of Grub Legacy, and can be run from within Ubuntu Linux to create a Custom Multiboot UFD containing your favorite Bootable Live Linux Distributions.

Universal USB Installer
Universal USB Installer is a Live Linux USB Creator that allows you to choose from a selection of Linux Distributions to put on your USB Flash Drive. The Universal USB Installer is easy to use. Simply choose a Live Linux Distribution, the ISO file, your Flash Drive and, Click Install. Other features include; Persistence (if available), and the ability to fat32 format the flash drive (recommended) to ensure a clean install. Upon completion, you should have a ready to run bootable USB Flash Drive with your select Linux version installed. 

Linux Live USB Creator
The Linux Live USB Creator is an awesome tool that can be used to install various Linux compilations, versions and distributions to a USB Flash Drive. The end result is a Bootable Live USB (in some cases with Persistence as well). Created by Thibaut Lauzière, LiLi USB Creator formerly known as ubuntu Live Creator, can create your Linux USB Flash Drive from a source Image, ISO or CD. It can also download the IMG or ISO for you. But it doesn't stop there. LiLi USB Creator can also install a Portable Virtualbox on the USB device. You can then either boot the Linux installation from inside Windows emulated using Virtualbox on USB or Boot from USB natively (if your computer supports booting from USB).
