How about trying out Linux from USB for a change? Sounds tricky. It’s not a big deal with tools like LinuxLive USB Creator (LiLi) available on Windows. All it needs is an ISO of the Linux distro you wanna try and a USB pen drive. It’s similar to Unetbootin in functionality but the LiLi interface is much more attractive to say the least. It’s also easy to use for anyone. Features:
- Many distros supported. Literally 100s of them!
- No reboot required
- Supported persistent space to save your work for selected distros
- Wipe the USB
- Can download ISOs and installs on USB
- Automatic integrity check
- Free and open source
Download LiLi from its website to use it. Portable versions are available.
