Hi everyone,
i wan't to install ubuntu on my 16 gb usb so i can access this os only when i want it and on different laptops. I would also like this to be a complete installation accompanied with all the appropriate updates. Btw i own a notebook so i only have usb ( and no cdrom ) available. Can i just do this process with wubi file from my windows 7, by choosing the usb partition?
Thanks a lot

There are a number of guides available on how to do it, just do a Google for 'ubuntu live usb'. I think the problems come with the updates because when you install/run Ubuntu it immediately updates itself, but I don't think there's a ready updated package.

You Really need a USB 3 Stick,

You have to download pendrive linux, then you can download an iso from there.

Note this will create a live usb just like a linux cd and not an actual os drive as such, but you can still boot from it.

Thank you for your responses but i think i read somewhere about a method creating an actual os in the usb. I will give it a shot and let you know!
