Windows USB Kiwi Linux Flash Drive creation

How to Create a USB Kiwi Flash drive: In the following tutorial, I will explain how to quickly and easily install Kiwi Linux to a USB flash drive using Windows and UUI. Kiwi Linux is a minimal remix based on Ubuntu that includes Adobe Flash along with audio and video codecs for restricted formats and support for encrypted DVDs. This distribution is for English, Romanian, and Hungarian speaking users. This tutorial does support the persistence feature, enabling you to save and restore most of your changes on subsequent boots.

How to Create a USB Kiwi Flash Drive using Windows

  1. Download and then launch the Universal USB Installer
  2. Select Kiwi from the list and then 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 then reboot.
