Tuxboot Review

Fernando Ortega
Linux live disk creator for bootable drives with Clonezilla support
A review of Tuxboot by Fernando Ortega

Tuxboot is a utility which can create bootable USB drives.

The application is suitable for installing operating systems, not least of which is Linux, hence the name. It works perfectly as an alternative to burning a DVD or CD disc.

The interface of Tuxboot is very basic and includes a couple of options including the ability to create a bootable Clonezilla drive. It also supports gparted, drbl, Cloudboot and Tux2Live.

All that is required to create the bootable drive is an OS image such as a Live Linux distro. It can be in either 7Z or ISO format. The drive type can be defined as either USB Drive or Hard Drive.

In the end, a useful tool for installing linux from a USB device instead of wasting physical CD and DVD discs.

Tuxboot features and highlights:
  • Support Clonezilla live, DRBL live, GParted live and Tux2live
  • Uses the syslinux in the ISO/zip file to make your USB drive bootable
  • Compatible with the same version of syslinux boot menu in the ISO/zip file
  • Auto find the latest version
  • Download an ISO file and build bootable USB flash drive on the fly

Tuxboot is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from disk management without restrictions. Tuxboot 0.8.2 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
