Booting from USB (if your hardware supports it) has the advantage of speeding things up.
You do not have to buy a DVD and you can re-use the same USB over and over again for other installations.

Whether I am installing

  • Mac Osx
  • Windows
  • Linux

you can use the same software namely UNetbootin.

In the article about rescuing my computer we used Unetbootin to burn a cd-rom to scan for viruses.

Via Unetbootin you can install a diversity of tools and distributions

  • Ubuntu
  • Linux Mint
  • Parted Magic
  • SystemRescueCD
  • F-Secure Rescue CD
  • NTPasswd
  • Kasperky rescue CD

I scroll over all the options in the Linux movie.


Bitdefender Rescue disk will be installed.



Kaspersky Rescue disk will be installed


Mac Osx


But there are other ways to make a USB bootable like we discussed in the article about Mavericks or the article of El Capitan.
Personally I tend to use these options for Mac Osx.
