UNetbootin (Universal Netboot Installer) is a cross-platform utility that can create Live USB systems and can load a variety of system utilities or install various Linux distributions and other operating systems without a CD.


[edit] Features

[edit] USB Install Mode

UNetbootin on Ubuntu

This installation mode creates bootable USB flash drives and bootable USB Hard Disk Drives; it is a Live USB creator.

[edit] Hard Drive Install Mode

This installation mode performs a network installation or "frugal install" without a CD, similar to that performed by the Win32-Loader.

UNetbootin's distinguishing features are its support for a great variety of Linux distributions, its portability, its ability to load custom kernel, initial ramdisk and disk image (including ISO image) files, and its support for both Windows and Linux.[1] Unlike Wubi, and similar to the Win32-Loader, when installing to hard disk, UNetbootin installs to a partition, not a disk image, thus creating a dual-boot setup between Linux and Windows.
