There’s an article about how to install ubuntu from usb without burning a CD in my blog,where I used Unetbootin which allow both Windows and Linux user to create bootable Live USB.This tutorial shows another USB creator with more powerful functionality and friendly,easy-to-use interface,that’s LiLi USB Creator.

As well as Unetbootin,LiLi USB Creator is a free software for Windows user to create a bootable Live USB key with a Linux on it.But this also offers an exclusive option of automatic virtualization to directly run Linux in Windows without any configuration nor installation.

* create bootable Live USB of Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Damn Small Linux, Puppy Linux and many others !
* enable persistency of your data
* launch Linux directly in Windows with a special Portable VirtualBox
* hide created files on the key

See the screenshot:

How to use:
* step 1 : launch the LiLi USB Creator and choose a USB key or drive in the list
* step 2 : select a ISO file or CD
* step 3 : choose the size of persistency data (usually more than 250MB)
* step 4 : check the options you want
* step 5 : click the lightning button to start the creation
Once you created an Live-usb,insert it into your machine and you can directly run it through virtualbox in Windows by following right-click menu options:

* —> LinuxLive ! : will directly launch your Linux in Windows (through VirtualBox)
* —> VirtualBox Interface : will launch the full VirtualBox interface
* —> CD Menu or LinuxLive Menu : will launch the original menu of the Linux CD
