Install Simply MEPIS 8 to a Flash Drive in Windows

How to create a SimplyMEPIS 8 USB Flash Drive using our Universal USB Installer while running from Windows. MEPIS Linux was founded by Warren Woodford in November 2002. Warren didn't like how current Linux desktops worked, so he decided to create his own. The first version was released to the public in May 2003. The SimplyMEPIS 8 version is based on a Debian 5 stable core with a 2.6.27 Linux kernel.
