Today I found an interesting piece of technology. Let me share with you.
You can boot a computer machine from your usb pendrive. It's very easy.
Get ready to prepare a bootable pendrive from your windows pc.
First you need to target a Linux distribution. I choose "puppy linux" it's live image size is roughly around 94MB, quiet small. You can easily copy it to your usb pendrive.
Download any of the puppy linux release from http://www.puppylinux.org/downloads
Now the next thing you need to get is the software that extracts this downloaded linux distribution onto your usb pendrive and make it bootable. I used UNetbootin tool for this purpose you can download it from http://lubi.sourceforge.net/unetbootin.html
The last thing inorder to prepare a linux bootable usb pendrive -
Plugin your pendrive execute the unetbootin exe file and select the location of your downloaded .iso file. Remember to choose the correct drive letter of your pendrive otherwise this tool will try to make someother drive bootable which could harm your data.
Once you are done. Then restart your machine and select the USB boot option from your system bios menu and boot your machine your Linux - bootable usb pendrive.
Now you can do all of the following things and much more.
- Browse internet
- Listen and watch audio/videos
- Recover data from your NTFS based windows hardrive
- Access almost all of the storage devices attached to your machine
- Lots more.
