Installing Ubuntu Studio from USB key

posted May 22, 2013, 5:16 AM by Warren Howard

These are the steps I followed to install Ubuntu Studio 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) Alternate Install DVD iso image through USB key. 

  1. I used a 4GB usb key formatted with the FAT filesystem.
  2. Download and run Unetbootin
  3. Using Unetbootin install a Ubuntu 10.10-HdMedia image onto the usb key.
  4. Copy the iso "ubuntustudio-10.10-alternate-i386.iso" onto the same usb key.
  5. Insert the usb key into the destination computer and boot from usb.

The Ubuntu installation process will now begin.

Later I wanted to access the iso file from within Ubuntu in order to install additional packages. To do this I followed these steps.
