This instruction describes how to install Ubuntu Server (in my case 11.04) onto a USB 3.0 stick and make it boot from that stick.
What you will need:
- A working Linux system
- gparted – Gnome Partition Editor
- unetbootin – the universal netboot installer
- The Ubuntu Server ISO image
- A USB 2.0 stick with at least 800 MB free space
- A USB 3.0 stick to install the system onto
