Make a USB Boot CD for Xubuntu 9.10 or 10.04

How to Create a USB Boot CD that can be used to boot a Xubuntu USB flash drive on computers with a BIOS that does not natively support booting from USB. A Boot CD created via this process works by loading the Initial Ram Filesystem along with any USB drivers from the CD. Because the USB drivers are made available from the Boot CD, the system will then attempt to find, decompress and load the final Xubuntu squash filesystem and casper-rw persistence file (if it exists) from the USB flash drive.

Make a USB Boot CD for Xubuntu 9.04

Create a USB Boot CD that can be used to boot Xubuntu 9.04 from USB flash drive on computers using a system BIOS that does not natively support booting from USB. The boot CD works by loading the initrd and vmlinuz kernel from the CD. Once the necessary USB drivers have been loaded, the boot CD proceeds to locate and load the filesystem from the USB flash drive. Because the USB driver modules are preloaded from the CD, the compressed filesystem can then be detected and loaded from the USB device even if your system BIOS does not support booting from USB.

Make a USB Boot CD for Xubuntu 8.10

Much like a USB Boot CD that can be used to boot Ubuntu 8.10 from USB, this USB Boot CD can be used to boot a prepared Xubuntu 8.10 USB flash drive on computers containing a system BIOS that does not natively support booting from USB. The boot CD works by loading the initrd and vmlinuz kernel from the CD. Once the necessary USB drivers have been loaded, the boot CD proceeds to locate and load the filesystem from the USB flash drive.
