    Good sw, and the list is still expanding. Not sure if it’s better than LiLi, byt still can do pretty good work. USB live boots are litle disappointing tho.

    Very easy for an MS-Windows Administrator to create a live USB.

    It took me a while to find it, but this is exactly what I was looking for! I had a .iso image for Windows XP that I wanted to load to my USB drive but couldn’t get it to boot without all kinds of weird hacks and random software. This is the solution (more…)

    Excellent piece of software (tested on Windows). Haven’t used it to its full yet but have used it to put gParted and PartMagic on to USB from an ISO so far and love it!

    Just wonderful work, totally saves the day when a DVD image is not available or you need to get the system loaded FAST. Plus it’s greener for the environment to use a USB than create endless DVD’s that are obsolete in 6 months time.

Read the review on FreeWareMission


It’s open source.

Extremely easy to use.


There you go, if you are a curious Windows user like myself and want to try other operating systems on your machine I think the easiest way to go is through UNetbootin. Create a bootable USB disk, reboot and install the new operating system, with or without giving up on the old one. Now please excuse me, I have to reboot and install Linux Mint 7. Stay tuned to find out how it went

UNetbootin allows users to install Linux or create bootable liveUSB drives without a CD. UNetbootin has built-in support for numerous distributions, including Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, PCLinuxOS, Linux Mint, ArchLinux, Debian, CentOS, Frugalware, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Parted Magic, though many other distributions can also be installed via an existing ISO or floppy/hard disk image file. Version 240 adds support for additional distributions.
