Creating a windows 7 self updating hardware independent image
The rest of the drive space is used for storage compatible with Windows.When a linux distro is getting close to end of life, please try to find a new version or another distro with support for a fair interval of time, and that works in the computer.There are some commands in mkusb, mkusb-nox and mkusb-min, which are not available in old or very small linux distros, for example Wary Puppy. There are some commands in mkusb and mkusb-nox, which are not available in old or very small linux distros, for example Wary Puppy. You are able to toggle live only or persistent live, when your input file is an ISO file.A simple version based on version 7.4 is made for such cases - mkusb-bas. A simple version based on version 7.4 is made for such cases - mkusb-bas. And when you have started along the persistent path, some warnings may pop up and finally you are prompted to select the percentage of the remaining drive space for persistence.The other (non-LTS) versions are only supported for 9 months.Downloading and using mkusb-installer works with several linux distros. This method is independent of the Debian - Ubuntu tools for installation.
autoclone is 'replacing' the interactive shellscript dus alias mkusb-dus, and calls the executing shellscript dus-live.
In Xubuntu you can turn it off like this: mkusb will 'use the whole device', actually only the head end (size of the iso file), but the rest of the device is not available.
I have been happy using unetbootin, because of its high success rate.
Instead it is recommended to keep most program packages as they are, and only upgrade packages when really necessary.
The following command lines work, when you want to update & upgrade the program packages that belong to mkusb without affecting the other program packages.
