Universal USB Installer, or UUI, is a portable Linux operating system installer that lets you select from a list of Linux distributions that you can put inside your portable USB flash drive.  It is fairly easy to use, with a step-by-step process that guides you throughout the entire installation process. Universal USB Installer is a convenient way to test different Linux operating systems without having to purchase actual discs for short-term use.

The program needs only a portable USB flash drive that is at least 4 GB in size. Universal USB Installer will work only on Windows Vista and Windows 7/8/10. Your flash drive will require FAT32 file system formatting for the installer program to work. How it works is it installs or writes ISO files of different Linux distributions onto that flash drive, making it a quick and portable way to install and boot onto the destination hard disk.

Setting up is a fairly easy task to follow. After you plug in your USB flash drive, you can start the installer wizard, which makes the process of installing a Linux operating system simple with its guided steps. Here, you can choose from the dropdown list the Linux Distribution that you want. You can choose Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu Casper Resistance among others.

Keep in mind that you do need a specific ISO file to complete the three-step installation process. You’ll have to specify the location of the ISO file on your drive, but if you don’t have it, the program also provides direct links to downloadable ISOs. When you have the ISO, you just have to provide the ISO path and select which drive to install to. The whole process takes around five to ten minutes to complete.

A great feature that Universal USB Installer has is its powerful “persistence”. Persistence, in this context, means that the changes you make to your portable Linux operating system will remain after every startup or boot. Most portable Linux distributions lacks in this feature.
