How to make Ubuntu Live CD using USB and Rufus

For this tutorial, we will just make an Ubuntu Lice CD. A live CD has so many uses. For example, if your principal operating system (like Windows 7, 8, 10 OS) is not working or will not load, you can use this to access your Windows files and backup it before reformatting it. I will not enumerate it all because we are here to just make one simple live CD.

How to make Ubuntu Live CD using USB and Rufus


1. Download and install first, Rufus.
2. Now, download the Ubuntu image also.
3. After download and installation, insert your USB flash drive in your USB port. Make sure your USB device does not have any of your essential files. If so, backup first all your files inside your USB device because all of it will be removed later.

5. Browse for the Ubuntu iso image file that you downloaded earlier. Select it, and then click the Open button.

9. When it finishes, click the Close button to exit Rufus.

10. Restart your computer and make sure to boot from your USB device. You can try pressing any of your computer function keys (F1 to F12) to be able to access your boot menu.

12. And the image below is a sample Ubuntu environment from a USB live CD.

13. Done! Just click the Gear icon located in the upper-right corner of your screen to Restart your PC.
