Universal USB Installer ©2009-2011 Lance http://www.pendrivelinux.

com (offered und er GNU GPL License) - see Uni-USB-Installer-Copying Background of Universal USB Installer (UUI): Universal USB Installer is an easy to use installer script (GUI) I wrote using N SIS to automate the creation of a bootable USB device that can be used to put a select Live Linux Distribution on USB. How Universal USB Installer (UUI) WORKS: This tool utilizes Syslinux to make the drive bootable, and in some cases chainl oads to Grub4DOS and uses a corresponding menu.lst. A syslinux.cfg file or text. cfg file may also used in some cases. 7-zip is used to extract the files from the ISO or Zip to the USB device. The co mpressed filesystem of the Live Linux distribution being placed on the device is not altered in any way. DD for Windows (dd.exe) and Mke2fs are used to make a casper-rw persistent file for storing changes. The casper persistent feature was created by Ubuntu and can in theory be used on any Ubuntu based remix. Formatting is done via the open source fat32format tool created by Tom Thornhill Credits Resources and Tools used: * Grub4DOS grldr ©2011, the Gna! people http://www.gnu.org/software/grub (unmo dified binary used) : Specific Grub4DOS link: http://gna.org/projects/grub4dos/ * Syslinux ©2011 H.

Initially, I offered Distro specific USB Installers that could be used to put a specific Live Linux Distro on USB. They were based on Cedric Tissieres's Tazusb. exe for Slitaz (slitaz@objectif-securite.ch). His Tazusb installer helped me quickly understand how NSIS works and how easily it could be applied to this situation. Reminances of Tazusb may still reside in this script. There were many other textbook and online resources used over time to help me un derstand how to put this all together.
