List of tools to make Bootable USB Drive

There were many operating system today like Windows, Linux, MacOSX but the most spread one in US and other countries are MAC and Windows and Linux is used by many server’s and that type of heavy weight system. But the interesting fact about Linux system is it distribution spread across the world , some of the popular Distribution are:
  • Ubuntu Linux.
  • Mint Linux.
  • RedHat Linux.
and many more are there so people have to use it for following reason:
  • Experiencing the new look and Feel.
  • Open Source software.
  • High Performance graphics delivers by Linux Distro.
To Install the Linux and other system like Windows and MacOSX into your system the convention are to make partition on your Physical Hard Disk and install the appropriate system that you wish to use. But Making partition and installing another OS creates so many difficulties in future like:
  • Recovery Problem (in Windows Recovery)
  • Unnecessary storage wasted even though you just want to test the OS.
  • Re-installing another OS feels trouble.
and there are many more unexpected error may arrive, so for better than that you can install the Operating system in your Drive in two secure ways:
  • Using Virtual Machine(Like VmWare)
  • Installing OS into Bootable USB.
NOTE: Bootable USB installation is only for those who want to just test the operating system and use them very few not like having big storage(can be solved by using 32GB USB Drive  ), for that separate drive installation is better.
