UNetbootin, Universal Netboot Installer Web Site
UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.
  • Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, or Linux, or Mac OS X 10.5+. Note that resulting USB drives are bootable only on PC platforms (not on Macs).
  • Internet access for downloading a distro to install, or a pre-downloaded ISO file
UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a "frugal install" on your local hard disk if you don't have a USB drive. It loads distributions either by downloading a ISO (CD image) files for you, or by using an ISO file you've already downloaded.

The current version has built-in support for automatically downloading and loading the following distributions, though installing other distributions is also supported: Read more
See Live USB Creation Guide.
Removal Instructions (Applicable only to Hard Disk / "frugal installs")
If using Windows, UNetbootin should prompt you to remove it the next time you boot into Windows. Alternatively, you can remove it via Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
If using Linux, re-run the UNetbootin executable (with root priveledges), and press OK when prompted to uninstall.
Removal is only required if you used the "Hard Drive" installation mode; to remove the bootloader from a USB drive, back up its contents and reformat it.
Uninstalling UNetbootin simply removes the UNetbootin entry from your boot menu; if you installed an operating system to a partition using UNetbootin, removing UNetbootin will not remove the OS.
To manually remove a Linux installation, you will have to restore the Windows bootloader using "fixmbr" from a recovery CD, and use Parted Magic to delete the Linux partition and expand the Windows partition.
Using a UNetbootin Plugin  
1. First, download the latest version of UNetbootin (for Windows) (for Linux)
2. Next, download a plugin to the same directory that you have the UNetbootin executable in.
3. Then, run the UNetbootin executable, and if all went well, the plugin should be loaded and you should see the customized version, such as this:
Imported from wikispaces
Troubleshooting If something isn't working correctly, try renaming the plugin to "unetbootin_custom.qm" or "unetbootin_custom_en.qm" (<-- substitute en with your locale here), copy the plugin and UNetbootin executable to your desktop, make sure there aren't other ".qm" files on it, and rerun the UNetbootin executable.
If this procedure works with the standard plugin example but not with the one you're using, it's an issue with the plugin itself, not UNetbootin; if you created the plugin please refer to the guide for Building a UNetbootin Plugin.
Custom UNetbootin Versions
UNetbootin Plugins See Using a UNetbootin Plugin for usage instructions.
It can be used with
 Smart Boot Manager (SBM), which can boot off CD-ROM and floppy drives on computers with a faulty BIOS.
