Hi folks :whistling: ,

Now friends, you are allowed to make bootable USB pen drive and also install to windows or Linux with the use of that bootable pen drive without use of bootable cd. Just Cd image is required to make a pen drive bootable in how many easy steps do you think?

I can do that in 10 steps!
Any advance?
I can do that in 9 steps!
Feasible in less?
I can do that in 8 steps!
Maybe at a pinch?
I can do that in 7 steps!
Less! You gota be joking?
I can do that in 6 steps!
Any advance on 6 steps?
Go on then I can do it in 5 easy steps!

If anyone is interested, post a request & I will provide the links to the info!

If you want to take the following as a request, you are welcome to: it is a request, and a pretty much peremptory one:


For the record, the TWO wise ;) rules for success:

1. Never tell people everything you know.

Do not apply in this particular case. ;)

Hi folks :whistling: ,

Well its a sham, half truth, little white lie, a mirage, Its not what you say, it's what you don't say that Dupes people very often, & yes I have fallen for it on may occasions myself but it gives you a buzz doing it, my apologies!!!

At the bottom of the page is [4 Linux users] 1st clue, the words in the title are carefully crafted to mislead also!

Anyway all will be revealed now (Mikorist would enjoy this!)

The Program I am talking about is UNetBootin it will work from both windows & linux but it will create Linux distro's from linux or Windows & act as a boot loader for transition from Windows to Linux.

Hers the links to read all about it ENJOY!
The Tutorials section is not just for Windows is it?

UNetbootin allows for the installation of various Linux/BSD distributions to a partition or USB drive, so it's no different from a standard install, only it doesn't need a CD. It can create a dual-boot install, or replace the existing OS entirely.
Judging by the amount of interest shown "Members Who Viewed Topic Today (5)" in such a short space of time it's a formula that works!
Irrespective of my deviant behavior it seems like a kewl Utility all the same!

Regards & Respect,

ispy ;)

P.S. Off topic for a mo - Scenario you have a laptop, no floppy drive and your CD-Rom is knacker-ed do you think a tutorial explaining how to reinstall XP would benefit Boot-Land users?
