How to install a Linux OS on a flash drive (not a live USB, but an actual OS on a flash drive).

(I take out my hard drive to be safe but it isn't necessary).

Requires 2 flash drives, referred to here as FlashDrive1 and FlashDrive2.

Download the OS and right-click the file and "Open with Disk Image Writer" or rip the .iso to FlashDrive1 however you want.

Turn off your computer, plug in both flash drives (into slots you know will have power and work on your computer) and start it up again, entering BIOS first to set your boot order so it read FlashDrive1 first (before your regular hard drive OS if you have left that installed).

You should see the options screen and click "Install Ubuntu."

... Method so far does not work so will update later...
