Create Ubuntu live Bootable USB drive

Anyone can make a free Ubuntu USB drive, CD, or DVD. A Ubuntu live drive can be used as a digital Swiss army knife to troubleshoot all sorts of problems with any PC, whether you need to recover files from a failing computer, diagnose hardware problems, perform a deep virus scan from outside Windows, or even reset a forgotten Windows password.

Visit Ubuntu’s website and download Ubuntu Desktop— we used 12.04 LTS for this, but any available version will do. Download the Universal USB Installer tool, then select your USB drive and the ISO file and the tool will create a bootable USB drive. You can also burn the ISO file to a CD or DVD, but those spinning discs will run slower than a USB drive tricks here use NTFS File format.

Once finished, you should be able to run Ubuntu directly from your Flash Drive, just as it does from a Live CD. Ubuntu's  casper-rw feature is also utilized for persistently saving and restoring your changes on subsequent boots.
