I followed the tutorial here but I'm stuck at the part where I need to add ''persistent'' on the ''kernel arguments list''. I don't know how to do that. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
To display this screen, immediately when you see the purple screen with the symbol at the bottom (seen immediately after the boot sequence starts) press Esc... If you got to the "try ubuntu screen" you missed the opportunity!
enter the word persistent as shown.
When you press F6 a pop-up menu will display. Press Esc to make this menu disappear then use the keyboard arrow keys to move to the position shown in the picture.
When you boot the flash drive, at the boot splash, hit the F6 button.
You will see the options listed at the bottom, navigate on the line with the options with the arrow keys, add in
If it is working, you can edit
Note: When I use persistence, I use 2 menu entries, one with and one without persistence.
Also take care, persistence uses a bit of space if you update your packages. If you are going to do that, I would suggest a standard install. You might also want to just use a persistent home.
FWIW, you can do this graphically with unetbootin and the Universal USB Installer
unetbootin is in the ubuntu repositories and runs on Windows
