USB Flash Drive Creation Prerequisites:
  • Universal-USB-Installer-
  • Windows XP/Vista/7 to create the USB (Win 98/2K WILL NOT Work!)
  • Fat32 Formatted Flash Drive
  • PC with a BIOS that can boot from USB
  • Your Favorite Linux ISO
Feel free to inform me of any updates to listed Live Linux distributions, and I will do my best to add support by updating UUI to support them.

More Live Linux Distributions will be added as time permits. Feel free to contact me to submit recommendations.

A Linux based method is planned for those who prefer not to use Windows. For now, visit the "How to install Linux from a Linux CD" section for Live CD based USB Linux installation tutorials, or use another Linux USB Creator.

IMPORTANT: When browsing for an ISO, UUI will only display ISO Files that match exactly what the tool is asking for. For example, if you chose to install Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop i386, you should not expect the tool to display your ubuntu-10.10-netbook-i386.iso as you have not chosen to install the netbook variant.

Auto Detection: If you run Universal USB Installer from the same directory containing an installable ISO, the script should Auto Detect the ISO and bypass step 2.Universal USB Installer auto detection of ISO in same folder
This tool does not support installing and booting from multiple Linux Distributions. Only One Distribution can be installed at any given point in time. However, we do offer a MultibootISOs USB Creator for this purpose.
To try an unlisted ISO, for example "Ubuntu 9.10", use one of the the last two options in Step 1, "Try Unlisted Linux ISO". Please inform me of unlisted "Linux ISOs" you get to work via these options!
