3 tools to burn the Ubuntu disc on a pendrive

3 tools to burn the Ubuntu disc on a pendriveA few days ago we got to know the new version of Ubuntu and with this we could also see how some flavors lost their support, so many will have to be forced to update their versions or install other distributions. In these cases it is essential to have a good handful of DVDs or the cheapest and most widely used option: the pendrive.

Today you can save an installation image to a pendrive but for this we will need a disk image, a pendrive and any of these tools:

  • UNetbootin. It is the star program on Gnu / Linux platforms, it is a simple program that will allow us to burn any installation disc of most of the distributions, Ubuntu included. In addition, this option allows us to download any distribution, we do not need to have it to make the program work, once it is downloaded UNetbootin is responsible for recording the image on the pendrive.
  • Discs. If we have Ubuntu, Disks is a great utility that will allow us to record any disk image on a pendrive, not only Ubuntu, but any other image (distributions, antivirus, etc ...) Another option that Disks allows us is to be able to record the image directly to through the right button of our mouse. To do this, we click the right mouse button on the downloaded Ubuntu image and click the option "Open with Disk Image Writer”, This will open the Disks program with the final option, ready for the lack of indicating where is the pendrive that we want to record.
  • Yumi. If we have Windows to record the image on the pendrive, the best option is Yumi, a great software similar to Unetbootin that not only allows us to record a distribution on a pendrive but several on a single pendrive, as well as having a memory to indicate to the system which distributions are already installed.

Once the pendrive has been used, it can be reused

These are three of the best options there are to burn the Ubuntu disc on a pendrive, however there are many more with their virtues and their defects, although more of the latter than of the former. Now you just have to choose one, prepare your pendrive for installation, isn't it easy?
