I've tried 2 other programs before UNetbootin (Iso to Usb and Linux Live creator) but the first didn't have the features i needed and Linux Live creator failed in concluding the process getting stuck at the "define persistence memory" step so don't waste your time...
I used UNetbootin to create 3 different Linux distros bootable USB's and it performed without errors, freezes or crashes (even on older systems) but it can be used to create a Windows recovery USB bootable drive or a utility bootable USB (with Anti-Virus repair and more Windows tools to repair your installation).Just in case you don't have a CD/DVD drive (like NetUltrabooks) and if you're new to this task you'll find that UNetbootin is really user-friendly! Use it once, and you'll use it forever!
With the advent of USB 3.0 & larger, cheaper flash drives experimenting with different environments utilizing ISOs of all kinds Linux distributions built-in or ones you make yourself are all at your finger tips. This tool make it extremely convenient and easy to get things running quickly with no fuss. This is a wonderful OpenSource project. Two-thumbs Up!
This is especially wonderful if you want to load your operating system from a thumb drive. I keep my operating system on a 4 gig thumb drive, if I reload, it's twice as fast due to disk speed limitations.
It's not limited to an OS however, other disk images like security tool scanners and such have worked as well. If you are big on using USB instead of a DVD or CD, this is definitely for you.
