Linux Bootable USB Creator


     Universal USB Installer aka UUI is a Live Linux Bootable USB Creator that allows you to choose from a selection of Linux Distributions to put on your USB Flash Drive. The Universal USB Installer is easy to use. Simply choose a Live Linux Distribution, the ISO file, your Flash Drive and, Click Install. Upon completion, you should have a ready to run bootable USB Flash Drive with your select operating system installed. Other features include; Persistence (if available) – Ubuntu, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu Casper Persistence feature works with FAT32 or NTFS formatted drives. Larger than 4GB casper-rw is possible only when the USB drive is formatted with the NTFS filesystem.

NOTE: To add multiple Linux Distributions, System Tools, Antivirus Utilities, and Windows Installers to your USB, try YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator

Update to support KDE Neon, Devuan, Vinari OS, and Ubuntu Budgie.
IMPORTANT: The Windows to Go option requires the USB be formatted NTFS with 20GB free disk space to hold the virtual disk. See FAQ for more info.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your USB drive must be Fat32/NTFS formatted, otherwise Syslinux will fail and your drive will NOT Boot.



Bootable USB Flash Drive Creation Requirements:

  • Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.7.8.exe
  • Windows Vista/7/8/10 or WINE to create the USB (Win 98/XP/2K WILL NOT Work!)
  • *Fat32 or NTFS Formatted Flash Drive. MBR partition only GPT will not work!
  • PC with a BIOS that can boot from USB
  • Your Favorite Linux ISO

Feel free to inform me of unlisted Live Linux distributions or version revisions, and I will do my best to update Universal USB Installer (UUI) to support them.
