Ultimate Edition USB Style...

Postby TheeMahn » Thu Sep 25, 2008 4:19 pm

    I have modified a version of unetbootin (great program btw, released GPL). There is both a linux version as well as Windows version available. The download here is different then what is available on their website; please read on.

    What it will do:

    • Build a USB installable / live version of Ultimate Edition 1.6 - Ultimate Edition 1.9 (both x86 & 64)
    • Optionally download it for you
    • Optionally persistent if you have set up the partitions on the thumb drive (see troubleshooting section for more info)
    • Optionally create a Live edition that runs from a partition (not currently recommended)
    • Boot other images (selecting custom images)

    What it wont do:

    • Tie your shoes ;)

    Requirements:

    • USB Thumbdrive (at least 2GB, 8GB for gamers)
    • Linux or windows
    • at least 2GB hard disk space (for downloading of the iso Image ~5GB for gamers)
    • Time
    Getting started:

    1. Download either the Linux (deb) version or Windows version.

    Release Name: Linux unetbootin (Ultimate Edition style)
    Version: 281
    Release Size: 3.5 MB (3,673,454 bytes)
    Download: Download

    Release Name: Windows unetbootin (Ultimate Edition style)
    Version: 281
    Release Size: 3.9 MB (4,060,148 bytes)
    Download: Download

    For those conserned I also provide the source...

    Linux:
    Installation unetbootin (Ultimate Edition style):
    install.png
    Installing

    dependancies.png
    Requires mtools the deb will automatically grab it for you.

    Using the tool:

    Firing it up

    Distro Selection (optionally you can select an ISO you have already downloaded)

    Downloading the distro for you

    unetbootin4.png
    Injecting the USB drive (sorry no Ultimate Edition 2.0 available yet ;)

    unetbootin5.png
    Reboot


    Windows:
    1. Download the tool (link above)

    2. Extract and execute

    Select USB drive and distro

    2.JPG
    Downloading Ultimate Edition 1.9 x86


    3. The rest is the same as above (linux how to)...

    Using the Thumbdrive:

    1. Reboot the computer
    2. Go into the bios select your USB drive as boot device (some mainboards such as mine allow hitting of F11 key to show a boot selection menu - keys very)
    3. Reboot the computer and enjoy...

    Troubleshooting:

    Some USB thumbdrives have problems with the MBR (Master Boot Record) being recognised... The Solution:
    Code: Select all
    sudo apt-get install lilo


    WARNING: Do not use lilo to replace your grub on your hard disk.

    Code: Select all
    sudo lilo -M /dev/sdx (replacing x with the letter of your flash device)


    References & further reading (including covering USB persistent).

    Enjoy Ultimate Edition Thumb style,

    Hello Aitsu.

    Please visit the links below for working links:

    UNetbootin 3.77 for windows:
    http://dfn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/unetbootin/unetbootin-windows-377.exe



    Ultimate Edition 2.4 and 2.5 won't work with unetbootin. Is there any modified version of unetbootin that can be used to boot Ultimate Edition 2.5 from a pendrive?

    Thanks.
