I have a question and I hope there is a way to do what I want. Basically I have a 64 GB pen drive, and I wanted to use it partially for storage and partially for having a live CD (or better, USB). The main critical points are:
- The storage partition should be readable by Windows
- I'd like to be able to install new applications to the Ubuntu OS (I think usual persistence only allows for documents to be kept - TBC)
- The computers where I want to run this are pretty new (so UEFI firmware), but if there is a way to have it compatible with BIOS ones (for instance the installation disks of UBuntu boot in both BIOS and UEFI PCs) it will be great.
- Bonus point: suggestions to reduce wearing of the USB
I tried unetbootin, but I cannot make the storage partition to appear on Windows. I tried installing Ubuntu directly on the pen drive, but I was not able to boot properly (I was using Virtualbox with UEFI enabled; it booted in virtualbox but not on the real PC).
Is there some way to do this?
