UNetbootin — Homepage and Downloads

UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without a burning CD. It runs on Windows, Linux та Mac OS X. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you’ve already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn’t on the list.


  • Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, or Linux, or Mac OS X 10.5+. Note that resulting USB drives are bootable only on PCs (not on Macs).
  • Internet access for downloading a distro to install, or a pre-downloaded ISO file


UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a «frugal install» on your local hard disk if you don’t have a USB drive. It loads distributions either by downloading a ISO (CD image) files for you, or by using an ISO file you’ve already downloaded.

  • After rebooting, if you created a Live USB drive by selecting «USB Drive» as your install target, press the appropriate button (usually F1, F2, F12, ESC, or backspace) while your computer is starting up to get to your BIOS boot menu and select USB drive as the startup target; otherwise if there’s no boot selection option, go to the BIOS setup menu and change the startup order to USB boot by default. Note that Live USB drives are bootable only on PCs (not on Macs). Otherwise, if you did a «frugal install» by selecting «Hard Disk» as your install target, select the UNetbootin entry from the Windows Boot Menu as the system boots up.
  • Removal Instructions (Applicable only to Hard Disk / «frugal installs»)

    If using Windows, UNetbootin should prompt you to remove it the next time you boot в Windows. Alternatively, you can remove it via Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

    If using Linux, re-run the UNetbootin executable (with root priveledges), and press OK when prompted to uninstall.

    Removal is only required if you used the «Hard Drive» installation mode; to remove the bootloader from a USB drive, back up its contents and reformat it.

    Uninstalling UNetbootin simply removes the UNetbootin entry from your boot menu; if you installed an operating system to a partition using UNetbootin, removing UNetbootin will not remove the OS.

    To manually remove a Linux installation, you will have to restore the завантажувач Windows using «fixmbr» from a recovery CD, and use Parted Magic to delete the Linux partition and expand the Windows partition.

    Installing Other Distributions Using UNetbootin

    Download and run UNetbootin, then select the «disk image» option and supply it with an ISO (CD image).

    UNetbootin doesn’t use distribution-specific rules for making your live USB drive, so most Linux ISO files should load correctly using this option. However, not all distributions support booting from USB, and some others require extra boot options or other modifications before they can boot from USB drives, so these ISO files will not work as-is. Also, ISO files for non-Linux operating systems have a different boot mechanism, so don’t expect them to work either.

    What translations are available, and how can I use them?

    A number of translations are included in the latest UNetbootin release. See the Translations Page for the status of each.

    If a translation corresponding to your system’s native language has already been included into UNetbootin, it should automatically load the corresponding translation. Alternatively, you can force the language to use via the lang=es command-line option, where you substitute es with the 2-letter ISO 639-1 code for your language.

    If you’d like to contribute a translation, please use Launchpad Translations. If you are new to Launchpad, you will first have to join the corresponding Ubuntu Translators group for the language you intend to translate. For information on using the Launchpad Translations system, see the translations help page .
