This question already has an answer here:
I have installed Ubuntu several times on my thumb drive. First times were on 8 gig thumb drives. I noticed I could not save anything as when I rebooted, it was all gone. So, I got a 30 gig drive, tried installing again.. and same thing. Now I find out I am running a LIVE version.. not actually an install. So, for the somewhat novice who cannot do command-line installs, Step by step is there a way to install ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386.iso using, unetbootin-windows-585.exe to a 30 gig usb stick using my windows 7 machine? I am not running intel.
I love to death Ubuntu, but want to be able to download and install apps and have them saved. Thank you. Please, post the steps.. 1.Go to .. and download... 2.Use... to install... 3.Must format usb stick?....
Know full well how to do command line and such in windows.. just not Ubuntu.. thank you. Standing by, hoping someone posts this.. or even posts a link to where someone has RECENTLY addressed this.. all I could find is from 2011, 2010... thanks.
