Flexible Lubuntu persistent live systems

Lubuntu 14.04.3 LTS (32 bit) and mkusb version 10.4

A compressed image file with a persistent live system of Lubuntu 14.04.3 LTS (32-bit) and mkusb version 10.4 can be installed into a USB pendrive or flash memory card. If you run Ubuntu installed in UEFI mode, it provides an alternative to create persistent live systems that work in BIOS mode, and even for 32-bit computers.

This compressed image file can be downloaded from dd_lubu-14.04.3-desktop-i386_one-pendrive_7.8GB.img.xz

and has the following md5sum

See this link to post #49 in the thread 'One pendrive for all PC (Intel/AMD) computers - single-boot dual-boot multi-boot' for more details.

Lubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (32 bit and 64 bit) with mkusb version 12.1.2 and 12.1.4

mkusb version 12.1.2 (tested by more people)

dd_Lubuntu_16.04.2_i386_persist-live_mkusb-12.1.2_7.8GB_msdos-pt.img.xz

for 32 & 64 bit in BIOS & UEFI mode, not secure boot; msdos partition table, suitable when not installing with mkusb, for example in Windows

dd_Lubuntu_16.04.2_amd64_persist-live_mkusb-12.1.2_7.8GB_guid-pt.img.xz

for 64 bit in BIOS & UEFI mode, works in secure boot; gpt, which is good for big drives but needs fixing (done automatically by mkusb)

dd_Lubuntu_16.04.2_amd64_persist-live_mkusb-12.1.2_7.8GB_msdos-pt.img.xz

for 64 bit in BIOS & UEFI mode, works in secure boot; msdos partition table, suitable when not installing with mkusb, for example in Windows

mkusb version 12.1.4 (further developed)

dd_Lubuntu_16.04.2_i386_persist-live_mkusb-12.1.4_7.8GB_msdos-pt.img.xz

for 32 & 64 bit in BIOS & UEFI mode, not secure boot; msdos partition table, suitable when not installing with mkusb, for example in Windows

dd_Lubuntu_16.04.2_amd64_persist-live_mkusb-12.1.4_7.8GB_guid-pt.img.xz

for 64 bit in BIOS & UEFI mode, works in secure boot; gpt, which is good for big drives but needs fixing (done automatically by mkusb)

dd_Lubuntu_16.04.2_amd64_persist-live_mkusb-12.1.4_7.8GB_msdos-pt.img.xz

for 64 bit in BIOS & UEFI mode, works in secure boot; msdos partition table, suitable when not installing with mkusb, for example in Windows

  • If you use the shellscript backup, the system as stored in the casper-rw partition can be backed up to and restored from the tarball 1-casper-rw.tar.gz. The content of the usb-data partition is still there, and other (more current) states can be backed up and restored from other tarballs. It is a good idea to store copies of the backup files (tarballs) in a separate drive.

  • Advantages: flexible and stable systems, that work in most PC computers.
  • Disadvantage: Two systems (image files) are necessary to work in all computers. The 32-bit version does not work with secure boot, and the 64-bit version does not with with 32-bit computers.
