All live CDs "boot to RAM". That is, for any volatile storage they use RAM. This is technically achieved using a union filesystem such as aufs which allows you to mount a read-only filesystem (eg, the CD) and combine it with free RAM to enable writes, but the writes are gone when the computer is rebooted. This may also be combined with a compressed ...

But that's fine, because you don't need that. If your goal is just to clear out all the partitions on the disk and make a new partition table, you can do ...

For burning the DVD, Startup Disk Creator is the wrong tool for the job. Startup Disk Creator will not burn DVDs--its purpose is just to write bootable ISO images to USB flash drives and SD cards. You said you have K3b. That will burn DVDs, so you may wish to use that. Burning an Ubuntu ISO image with K3b is covered in the Burning from Kubuntu section of ...
