Useful CD and USB Boot Feature

If your computer does not support booting from USB, you can still use a LiveUSB install of Ubuntu (and probably many other distros). All you need is an install CD.

  1. Insert the install CD AND connect the LiveUSB
  2. Boot from CD. Ubuntu will actually run from the LiveUSB, and you can even remove the CD.
  3. Enjoy the speed and persistent storage advantages of a LiveUSB, even if your machine can't boot from USB!
