  • Usually, you install the iso to one USB drive and then you can install Ubuntu onto another USB drive but not the same drive. Do you have another USB drive? – mchid Aug 6 '19 at 6:29

ubuntu is already a live os you could create persistance to save the created data on live ubuntu. Rather than installing the entire ubuntu on same usb which contains all the ubuntu installation files.

    @random Can you please elaborate what you're trying to say and how this would answer the question? – Kulfy Aug 5 '19 at 19:17

Since you want to create a LiveUSB for Ubuntu 16.04 32-bit, and have a Windows machine available (the one you ran Rufus on), we will follow the Windows process which is about 80% down the page after the lengthy Ubuntu process.

Step 1: Install LiLi on Windows.
Step 2: Insert your flash drive you wish to use as the LiveUSB.
Step 3: Launch LiLi as an Admnistrator.
Step 4: Follow the steps at the LiLi Help Guide.
