This article suggest to select Ubuntu Server 10.04 from the list in YUMI(I'm using windows edition). However, the latest YUMI does not have Ubuntu Server 10.04 in the list. The only Server version is available in the list is 11.00, which I am not interested in.

Anyone knows how to create 10.04 Server drive with YUMI?

You have two options, the easiest is try putting your ISO in YUMI's run directory. Supposedly it can auto-detect it.

Or you can manually install it alongside (I assume) your other BootCD's on the USB. It's actually a pretty simple process, especially with Ubuntu (others require hacking of the initramfs and mounting and other crazy stuff...)! So, you're lucky to get out easy on this one! Haha!

So, here's what you do:

  1. Download the 11.04 Server ISO from
  2. Extract the CD to a subdirectory of your flash drive.
  3. Find the syslinux menu. It's called either syslinux.cfg or isolinux.cfg. It will be the one loaded in either /syslinux.cfg /boot/syslinux.cfg /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg (or /isolinux.cfg, /boot/isolinux.cfg, /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg).
  4. Add these lines:

    label ubuntu
    menu title Ubuntu Server 10.04
    config /ubuntudirectory/isolinux.cfg
  5. In /ubuntudirectory/isolinux.cfg (or /ubuntudirectory/boot/isolinux.cfg) on every append or initrd (it can be either) add this kernel option to the end: directory=/ubuntudirectory/casper

That's it! Try running it in Qemu (use -snapshot!) to be sure if you don't feel like rebooting.
