This is a tutorial that will create a portable build which you can load in a virtual machine environment or you can even boot into it! It is essentially a live CD but on USB.
This process eliminates the need for virtualisation software (unless you have a mac), it also ensures that all your systems resources stay in your OS to get maximum performance. It is also kinda a cool idea to have a WiFi hacking laptop and accessories. If you want this you should also install Opera, Flash and other apps, games also if you want to (check out the repository). You just need to add the appropriate .tce or .tcz files (see here and note the appropriate file locations may not be the same as suggested here).
2. Rename your drive and format your USB as FAT32
3. Create a new folder on your desktop
4. Download UltraISO or any other ISO program where you can extract the files
5. Mount your ISO into UltraISO or other
6. Extract the files into your new folder that you created on your desktop
7. Drag all those files within your new folder into the USB drive, now.
8. Open UNetbootin and navigate to the following:
~ means your files on USB
some builds are varied and will be:
you can change these options manually. E.g. change the screen resolution (vga = 7??) or change the language (e.g. en.utf8). See Tiny Core FAQs for other variable options
Codes to change the screen resolution:
Colour 640×480 800×600 1024×768 1280×1024
256 8 bit 769 771 773 775
32000 15 bit 784 787 790 793
65000 16 bit 785 788 791 794
16.7M 24 bit 786 789 792 795
8. After rebooting, select the USB boot option in the BIOS boot menu.
Reboot now? Yes
Note, this may only work in Windows or Linux system, definitely not Mac OS X. Check out the video below for an alternative method if the one above does not work. Let me know which methods work for you the best 🙂
If the USB does not load you should add the following kernel boot parameter waitusb=6 to potentially fix the problem.
