I put Ubuntu on a USB stick using LinuxLiveUSB

It works great, but upon start-up a dialog box for installing Ubuntu comes up asking if one wants to install it or to just continue to use it. It stops the start-up process, and if you click it closed it then shows you the desktop.

Can anyone advise me how to just boot straight into the desktop by getting rid of this dialog box?

This is definitely after the start-up, so I think it must be in an init.d script someplace.

For what I believe, editing the bootloader file will work out, because from there you can choose wether to try or to install.

And where is the bootloader file located? –  Lucio Mar 28 '13 at 0:45
    
Can you give advice on what it would look like? –  user142859 Mar 30 '13 at 15:59

If I understand well, you are trying to use a LiveUSB as a full installation of Ubuntu inside a USB stick.

Concepts:

  • The LiveUSB is used to try Ubuntu and to install Ubuntu in a HDD.
  • The USB stick with a full Ubuntu installation can be booteable and is used to run Ubuntu daily.
