I have a 16 gig flash drive with an installation of Ubuntu on it with a bunch of programs and built software. I know that normally a bootable version of Ubuntu will have a thing on the desktop to install to the hard drive. How do I replicate this full USB installation on a computer?

This might be a help: as it is a similar situation. – Mordoc Feb 27 '13 at 19:42

Simple: Install the following packages:

  • For Ubuntu:

    • ubiquity-frontend-gtk
    • ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu
  • For Kubuntu:

    • ubiquity-frontend-kde
    • ubiquity-slideshow-kubuntu
  • For Xubuntu:

    • ubiquity-frontend-gtk
    • ubiquity-slideshow-xubuntu

Then put a launcher to ubiquity on your desktop and you are ready to install Ubuntu from your stick at will.
