Creating a USB Drive Install of Mythbuntu

To install Mythbuntu from a USB drive (a. k. a. thumb drive or flash drive), follow the Ubuntu directions using the Mythbuntu ISO:

  • Get a USB drive 2 GB or larger
  • Save anything you need from the USB drive. This procedure will wipe out the USB drive.
  • Install the package usb-creator
  • Run USB Creator (In Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, it’s in the menu under System -> Administration -> Startup Disk Creator).
  • Select the Mythbuntu ISO if it’s not already selected.
  • Select the USB drive and select “Erase the disk”
  • Select Make Startup Disk
