Creating a Persistant SCLive 3.0 on a USB Flash Drive

Why do we want to do that?

Persistant installations of liveCD gives us the best of both worlds. You are able to boot SCLive from most computers (LiveCD feature) but you can also modify the data as well as the system files.

This is almost like a hard drive install with the added benefit to be able to use it on most machine without any additional installation required.

In the context of SCLive, any modification that you will make to the existing projects will be safely kept on the USB Flash Drive.

The following video details one of the many ways to achieve a persistant installation.

Et Voila!

    Nice video and congratulations on the LiveCD excellent compilation!

    As a note, one can add that this method can also be applied to creating persistent SCLive on a harddrive.
    I am not using the LiveCD as my primary OS, however I’m running it under a virtual machine (VirtualBox) where I needed it to retain certain files without needing to mount or connect to any outside shares. Also, this has the advantage of being almost as portable as the USB method outlined in the article – just pack the image on a USB and start it up on any computer (as long as there’s VirtualBox)

      Thanks for the feedback Andrei, I believe there is also a prtable version of VMWare player (maybe virtualbox too). So in theory you could put both the image and the portable Virtualizing software on the same USB medium. That would be the ultimate portable solutuion !

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
