Ubuntu Full installation to an external USB Hard drive | USB Pen Drive Linux

Installing Ubuntu 7.04 to a USB Hard Drive A complete Ubuntu install to a USB hard drive is a relatively simple process. As a matter of fact, it is almost as simple as a regular Ubuntu internal hard drive or compact flash card installation. Due to popular e-mail demand from our subscribers, we have decided to write a simple tutorial on the Ubuntu USB hard drive installation procedure. So go grab an available external USB hard drive and a nice cold beverage and lets get started. *Ubuntu is a product of Canonical Ltd Notes: Do be forewarned that this is a full installation (not a compressed Squashfs install) . Due to the extensive read and write operations of a full Linux install, you might want to use an external USB or Firewire Drive with a rotating platter instead of a Flash Drive. Full install Prerequisites: * 8 GB USB hard drive (note "rotating platter" we aren't talking about a flash drive here) * Backup any information on your USB hard drive (device will be formatted during the install process) * Ubuntu ISO (Ubuntu 7.04 was used in this tutorial) however 7.10 should work as well * CD Burner Installing Ubuntu to an external USB hard drive: 1. IMPORTANT: Ensure that all internal hard drives are disconnected from your computer during the install (pull your SATA or IDE cables) 2. Download the Ubuntu 7.04 ISO, burn it to a CD and restart your computer from the live CD 3. Once the Ubuntu Live system is up and running, navigate to System-> Preferences-> Removable Drives and Media and uncheck the following options: Mount removable drives when hot-plugged Mount removable media when inserted Browse removable media when inserted 4. Click the install Ubuntu icon from the desktop to begin the installation 5. At step four Prepare disk space, select the Guided-use entire disk option and elect to install to your USB hard drive: Prepare disk space - Full Ubuntu external hard drive install 6. When the installation has finished, select the option to restart-now 7. Boot into your system BIOS or Boot Menu and elect to boot from your USB Hard drive. If all goes well, you should now be booting into a full installation of Ubuntu from your portable USB device. ;) Posted under: Install Linux to a USB hard drive Related Portable Linux Posts * Pendrivelinux V1 install to a portable USB hard drive * Grub Error 21 after full install to USB hard drive * Use a Floppy to Boot USB Pendrive Linux * USB SUSE Installation to a USB Hard Drive Disclaimer * Portable Linux Categories

The main steps are: * Prepare the USB drive * Boot the computer from your USB drive. * Install Ubuntu as you would from a normal boot CD Note: It is highly recommended to use the latest version of Ubuntu to prepare your USB drive.

Image Writer project files

Download project files After you've downloaded a file, you can verify its authenticity using its MD5 sum . (How do I verify a download?)

Installation/FromImgFiles - Community Ubuntu Documentation

# Download the desired .img file # Install the usb-imagewriter package * If your release does not include this, download it from Oliver's PPA * If imagewriter fails to launch, you may need to install python glade2 support. Install the python-glade2 package or Run sudo apt-get install python-glade2 * If your release does not include it and you are running 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope then run this command from the console: o sudo apt-get install usb-imagewriter # Open Applications -> Accessories -> Image Writer * KDE users will find this in Applications -> Utilities -> Image Writer * on some usb-imagewriter versions (console command: imagewriter) the application fails to write if the image path contains blank spaces, exiting with "IndexError: list index out of range". Also, in case you prefer to launch it from the command line, don't forget to sudo it, otherwise it will give a permission error. # Insert your flash media # Select the downloaded file and flash device, and click "Write to Device" # Remove your device when the operation is complete
