    Default Newbie question on making BT5 R2 bootable on USB

    Hi,

    I'm a newbie using BT5. I was reading the How-Tos on making BT5 R2 bootable through USB. However, it seems that I need to run BT5 before making this possible. I'm just confused now. How am I supposed to run/boot BT5 if my purpose is to make it bootable in the first place. Hahaha. I have the KDE 32bit ISO downloaded and I'm running on Windows 7. Is there a way for me to make it bootable through Windows? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Or you could use Universal USB Installer:

    You download it as an ISO, burn the DVD, boot make the USB. (Of just DL the ISO and use it to make the USB leveraging one of the tools listed above.)
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    To explain further, you need to format your USB stick to FAT32, make sure it doesn't have U3 Tools installed on it, and then open UnetBootIn. There, you will need to select the ISO radio button and browse for the ISO file you want to use. Select the drive letter of your USB stick from the dropdown box and click "OK". Your USB drive has to be 2GB or more.
