UNetbootin loads distributions by either downloading an ISO (CD image) file for your personal use or by just making use of an ISO file you've already downloaded into your system. Just select an ISO file or distribution to download, choose the target drive, whether it be a hard drive or USB drive, then reboot once you are done. If your USB drive doesn't show up, reformat it as FAT32.
UNetbootin is a cross-platform software that can also be used to load various system utilities like SystemRescueCD, Super Grub Disk, Dr.Web Antivirus, Backtrack, Ophcrack, Tuning, Smart Boot Manager, NTPasswd, FreeDOS, Parted Magic, F-Secure Rescue CD, and Gujin.
How using UNetbootin helps you
What distinguishes UNetbootin is its support for a wide range of Linux distributions, it's portability, the ability to load custom disk image files, and the support for both Linux and Windows Operating Systems. When installing to a hard disk, this software installs not to a disk image like other similar programs, but a partition, thus creating a dual-boot setup between Windows and Linux.
After rebooting, if you made use of the USB install mode, you would have pressed a button like an Esc or F12 immediately after turning on your computer, while on Mac OS, you are required to hold the option key before OSX boots. Also, if you used the "Hard disk" install mode after you are done rebooting, merely select the UNetbootin entry from the Windows boot menu. With UNetbootin, there is a built-in support for downloading and loading the following distributions automatically: Linux Mint, Puppy Linux, Frugalware Linux, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Gentoo, Sabayon Linux, Debian, OpenSUSE, NetBSD, MEPIS, Zenwalk, FreeBSD, SliTaz, centOS, Elive, 3CX, Fedora and much more.
To install other distributions using this software, download and run UNetbootin, then select the option for "disk image" and supply it with an ISO (CD image). There are no specific distribution rules for making your live USB drive, so most Linux ISO files would load correctly using this option. There are several translations included in the latest UNetbootin release like Hungarian, Hebrew, German, Italian, Japanese, French, Finnish, Dutch, Danish, Simplified and traditional Chinese and a host of others.
