  • Following this tutorial leads to connect the USB you made, always to the pc to boot whatever other OSs on your system as the boot loader is on the USB.If you prefer a live system and prefer to have a speedy boot and shutdown, then make a small partition FAT32 for home, where you can save data and an ext4 for the OS on the usb and make a multisystem by following this tutorial.pendrivelinux.com/multiboot-create-a-multiboot-usb-from-linux – beeju May 2 '12 at 9:01

After making it bootable, boot into the live version of it and click on install. It will start a series of steps where the hard drive partitioning part is where you have to be a bit careful. If you prefer to partition manually, choose that option and allocate space for your root folder. Basically these are the steps that you need to follow.

  • thank you. i has partitioned manually, created linuxswp and ext4 for / (root). so what do I still need to boot into the live version? or other options? Does USB Drive (Pendrive) have same interface like CD/DVD bootable? – obysr May 2 '12 at 7:52
  • Why would you want to boot into the live version now that you have already partitioned and are on the brink of doing an installation? :) If you want to boot into the live version, then simply plug in the pen drive and boot. It will take you right there. – harisibrahimkv May 2 '12 at 7:54
