My computer has a 500GB harddrive that is divided into 2 partitions (250GB each). One has Ubuntu12.10 and the other-one is completely empty. Currently, I do not have in my possesion a >2GB flash drive or an empty DVD, is it possible to Install a Raring-Ringtail image into the empty partition from within ubuntu?

Edit: Can I create a 2GB partition and make it a bootable flash drive?

Just to clarify, a 1GB USB-drive will be enough to create a bootable device. –  Steffen Christensen Jan 28 '13 at 19:54
Thanks. I'll try with my almost 2GB drive. –  Gilad Naaman Jan 28 '13 at 20:01
