How to Create Bootable Live Linux USB with LiLi USB Creator

In the first step, you have to choose a USB disk which you want to turn into a bootable live Linux USB disk. You can use the USB keys or USB hard disks, provided that they have at least 4 to 5 GB free space available. In the second step, you have to select the source of the Linux distribution. You can use a Linux CD/DVD, a Linux ISO that you have already downloaded or you can choose an online source from where you want to download the Linux distribution.

The third step depends on your selected Linux flavor. If your selected Linux distribution supports persistence, then you can choose how much space you want to allot for the persistence. Persistence is the ability to save the configured settings and files for the next session. Most of the popular Linux distributions like Ubuntu, Kubuntu, PCLinux etc., support persistence.

In the fourth step, you have to choose options like hiding files on the USB key, formatting the target USB disk before creating the live Linux disk and ability to launch Linux in Windows (which uses VirtualBox to run Linux inside Windows without having to reboot or shutting down Windows first). In the final step, you can create the lightening icon to start the USB creation process. In a short while, you would get the message that your live Linux USB has been created successfully.

LiLi USB Creator is a one stop solution for all your Live Linux USB creation requirements. It supports all the popular Linux distributions as well as the emergency or security disks distributed by the security companies like Avira Antivirus. It can also automatically update the Linux on USB to a latest version without loss of any persistent data.
