Cómo instalar Linux desde un pendrive USB

Pasos a seguir:

  1. Bajar la imagen ISO de la distro en cuestión.
  2. Bajar UNetBootin. En Ubuntu, es más fácil si lo instalan usando Synaptic.
  3. Correr UNetBootin desde Aplicaciones > Herramientas del Sistema.
  4. Insertar el pendrive
  5. Elegir como fuente la imagen ISO bajada en el paso 1.
  6. Elegir como destino la unidad USB
  7. Aceptar y esperar a que termine (puede tardar unos minutos)
  8. Reiniciar la compu, configurar el BIOS para que arranque desde el USB.

De este modo, no sólo te ahorrás los CD/DVDs que hubieras estado obligado a quemar antes, sino que podés probar sistemas operativos completos sin borrar ni un ápice de los datos almacenados en tu compu. Eso sin mencionar que funciona mucho más rápido que si arrancáramos el sistema desde el LiveCD/DVD.

Para recuperar tu USB, lo recomendable es formatearlo, pero no es un requisito indespensable, con borrar todos los archivos copiados por UNetBootin alcanza. 🙂
