XBMC LiveUSB (formerly "LiveXBMC") V1: an USB disk image
#10
I have the HP tool already, but it only gives formatting options for FAT32 and NTFS. Also, doesn't have any tools for IMG files, just says 'No dos files found'. Using x64.

I would love to use this, i bought a 4gig Flash Voyager (Corsair) yesterday JUST SPECIFICALLY to install Ubuntu and XBMC and saw this today, making it even easier to do. I did find this a little tricky. I have the live cd for now, but am not linux savvy AT ALL, as i'm sure a lot of people aren't. But willing to learn.

One point i read over in the Tom's Hardware forums, which is not good, and something (of ALL tutorials i've read of installing linux on USB) is that THEY said it's NOT recommended for a BIG reason, the average USB stick (gave pretty specific and highly detailed specs of why.) has an average of 10,000 writes, which for an OS, one would find a USB stick to start giving error's from wear and tear after a period of time quicker then one thinks. Thats bad news to hear. Anyone hear otherwise? I know Tom's Hardware is one of the most knowledgable and respected site on the net.

But either way, i still have a 300gig USB hardrive sitting around not using anyway, since i use my 500gig netdrive since then, and want to get this working still, whether on my USB stick, or my USB hard drive. I'd like to start getting used to Ubuntu, and XBMC linux. I'll be closely following this thread for sure, in excitement of this easier solution, for the linux newbs.
