Linux from a flash drive(2 posts)
How did you load Linux on the flash drive?
Live Linux on a flash drive will load exactly the same every time unless it has persistence.
I would use The Universal USB Installer from here http://www.pendrivelinux.com/u.....-as-1-2-3/ to put the ISO you have downloaded onto the flash drive.
Not all distros will allow persistence. I use Linux Mint 13 with the Mate desktop. It does.
