Install Ubuntu 9.04 to a Flash Drive in Windows

Create a USB Persistent Ubuntu 9.04 Flash Drive using Windows. In the following tutorial, I show you how we installed Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope), a product of Canonical Ltd to a USB flash drive using Windows and our USB Installer installation script. Ubuntu 9.04 can then be booted and run entirely from your portable USB device. This Flash Drive creation process does utilize the casper-rw loop block file for persistently saving your changes and restoring these changes on subsequent boots.

Ubuntu 9.04 USB Flash Drive Creation tutorial

This tutorial is obsolete! Please use the Universal USB Installer instead.

  1. Download the torrent and then proceed to download the ISO using your favorite torrent client
  2. Download and launch USB Installer for Ubuntu 9.04, and follow the onscreen instructions
  3. Once the script has finished, restart your PC and set your BIOS or Boot Menu to boot from the USB device, save your changes and reboot

If all goes well, you should now be booting from your own personal Live Ubuntu 9.04 USB that allows you to save most of your changes persistently.
