RUN MINT LINUX ON FLASH DRIVE(WINDOWS)

Post  Admin on Fri Jul 10, 2009 10:15 am

Here's the article that I've found in pendrivelinux.com
It shows how to run mint linux on your flash drive, while running windows operating system.

This is the whole thing:
USB Linux Mint 7 persistent flash drive creation. In the following tutorial, we show you how to use Windows to create a Portable Linux Mint 7 USB flash drive. Linux Mint 7 Gloria is based on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope and is compatible with it's current repositories. Originally launched as a variant of Ubuntu with integrated media codecs, Linux Mint has developed into an elegant Linux distribution. Currently maintained by Clement Lefebvre, more information about Linux Mint can be found at the Official Linux Mint site.

Note: The persisten feature works just as it does in Ubuntu 9.04, allowing you to save and restoremost of your changes.


Linux Mint 7 Gloria Screenshot:



Here are the things you'll need:
*2GB or Larger USB Flash Drive (Fat32 formatted)
*Linux Mint 7 Gloria ISO
*fixmint7.exe


Here are the steps:
1. Download and run this file: [url=http://www.pendrivelinux.com/downloads/USBMint7.exe]USBMint7.exe

2. Download USBMint7.iso and copy it to the USBMint folder on your desktop

3.From the USBMint folder on your desktop, run fixmint.bat and follow the onscreen instructions
Reboot your PC and set your system BIOS or Boot Menu to boot from the USB device, save your changes and reboot booting from the USB memory stick

Upon reboot, you should have a successful launch of USB Linux Mint (Portable Linux Mint 7) from your flash memory stick.

Persistence size: The default casper-rw loop file that becomes the partition for saving changes is only 1GB. If you have room and would prefer to use more space for saving changes you can download one of the following zip files and extract the new casper-rw file to your USB device, replacing the old one.

*Download these files:

Note: If any of these links doesnt work, just copy the links and paste them on your address bar(where you type websites).

You will lose any saved changes by replacing your casper-rw file with one listed above!
