UNetbootin is a program for creating bootable USB flash drives with Linux / BSD operating systems. The application supports 40 of the most common distributions, each with a different version of the system.

You can choose to download the correct operating system, or if it already exists, you can specify the path to the ISO image. If you choose the second option, you can create a bootable flash drive even for a system that is not listed.

When selecting the desired distribution from the drop-down list at the top, UNetbootin shows its brief description and link to the project home page. Then you just need to click on the OK button at the bottom of the program window. Downloading the distribution and writing it to a flash drive will begin.

During the test not all distributions were downloaded (in particular, Kaspersky Rescue Disk, which is based on the Linux kernel and is also included in the list). In this case, the program offers to go to the site and download the distribution by yourself, and then create a bootable flash drive using the ISO image.

In addition to all the advantages, the program has a fairly small file size and does not require installation.

- Create bootable Live USB disks;

- support for Hard Disk Mode emulation for systems that do not support USB booting.

The best part of UNetbootin is that it works with so many of the different distributions. This way if you move from one to the other, you know this will work with it. What's also nice is how simple it is - it's so small, you don't even have to install it into your system.
UNetbootin, the tool to put Linux ISOs onto USB drives, is a nice and easy way to create a Linux bootable drive, would be easy to use for most people, and does not need to be installed on the computer to be used.
UNetbootin was a life saver for me. I needed a way to quickly and easily transfer my copy of Ubuntu to bring with me to work. Being able to put it on a flash drive was super convenient for me and the rest of my staff to use and boot off of. I would definitely recommend trying for how easy it is.
