Ubuntu 13.04, Creating bootable USB with Yumi (in video)

In the next video tutorial I will show you the correct way to use Yumi to create our Bootable pendrive to install the latest version of Ubuntu, Ubuntu 13.04.

Yumi is a tool, which unlike UNetbootin, allows us to burn or record in the same pendrive more than one Linux distribution, which is ideal for all those users who like to try several distros especially to use in their format Live from the USB itself.

In another graphic tutorial I already taught you how to use this tool to Windows, although due to requests from different users I have decided to create this new video tutorial to explain the process in an easier way if possible.

In the attached video you will find all the process explained step by step, from how to download the tool from its official website, to the correct way to download directly the Linux distribution that we want, going through the complete recording process from the pendrive or Bootable USB with our distro of Ubuntu 13.04.

If you still have any questions or queries, do not hesitate to use the blog comments or from the video itself uploaded to You Tube channel de ubunlog.

It's advisable download previously Linux distributions that we want to record on our pendrive, since if we select the download option from Yumi, the creation process takes a long time, especially if we are going to record more than one distro.

This latest version of Ubuntu 13.04 is called Daily Build and it is not a final version.

If we are going to record more than one Linux distro in the same pendriveIt is essential that it adapts in size to the number of distributions that we want to install, otherwise the installer will tell us that there is no space to record the selected distro.

The standard distributions of Linux usually occupy around the 800 Mb, so in a Pen drive of 2 GB you can install a couple of distros.

Yumi It also has among its options the possibility of installing system tools and antivirus to be able to use them directly from the pendrive or Bootable USB.

When starting our Bootable USB We will get a screen as a menu from which we can easily access all the distros burned in the aforementioned support, in this main screen of Yumi, the option that is marked by default is to start from our hard disk, if we do not touch anything in the predefined period of time, the computer will start from the aforementioned unit.

    Interesting. Have you tried Yumi under Wine? It works? Because I would not like to have to install a Windows just to use this program.

    1.    Francisco Ruiz said

      I try it and tell you

      1.    AlbertoAru said

        How was the test?

      Since Ubuntu I use multisystem, you have to add the repository and then it is installed, I don't use all the options but it has several, it has options for virtual box, it also generates a grub4dos and also allows a persistent distribution.

    3.    AlbertoAru said

      I think that depends more on the resources of your own computer and the type of pendrive you use if you are going to use it from there.

    I have used MultiSystem for a long time and it has never given me any problems.

      I do not know my friend, it will be a matter of trying it, what if it is true is that Yumi is very functional and works perfectly.

        There is also Sardu and XBoot that are similar, I have them all; the previous 2 are listed on the left side of categories of the Pendrivelinux.com page that you gave. The most complete I think is Sardu.

        1.    Francisco Ruiz said

          Thanks for the info I'm sure I'll try them.

    Can you make a tutorial on how to burn an ISO to be able to use ubuntu or debian as if it were Puppy linux or Icabian? (use the pendrive on any computer and that the changes are saved on the pendrive)

    1.    Francisco Ruiz said

      You just have to burn the ISO with Unetbotin and at the bottom add the persistence box and how much space to use.

        WAS THAT SIMPLE? !!! You just gave me life, I swear, now I see an etbootin differently. For me, that grub-like image was just something ugly and almost useless for the ordinary user, but you just opened my eyes 😀

    Hello, I have seen the video and I have the doubt, will I be able to start the two operating systems or Windows 8 is useless ??? please help!

    I have a question, I installed ubuntu 13.04 in my memory and from there I run the operating system but when I turn off the computer it does not save anything, example download google chrome and when to pay it and turn it on I do not save google or the updates that I had asked why it happens and how could it be solved

    1.    Francisco Ruiz said

      You have to re-record it on a Pendrive and when configuring the unetbotin below you have to check the persistence box and give it the amount of megabytes you want to use to save data.
      For example, if you use an 8 Gb pendrive you can give it a 4, 5 or 6 Gb persistence so that you have enough space to work with it and that the modifications made in the session are saved.

        but I have to use another program besides yumi

        1.    Francisco Ruiz said

          To give it persistence use unetbootin.

            And how is it installed or activated?
            what does it do?

          2.    Francisco Ruiz said

            It's like yumi, search the blog for a complete tutorial.
            You will have to burn the iso again and check the box for persistence and capacity.

            ok so i don't use yumi anymore ??

          4.    Francisco Ruiz said

            Yumi is rather to record several iso on the same pendrive.
