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.
