How long to create a LinuxLive USB Key?

Here are the steps followed to create the LinuxLive USB key and estimated times:

  • Formatting the USB key (if option checked) (1 min.)
  • Cleaning previous install (< 1 min.)
  • Downloading VirtualBox as a background task * (5 - 10 min. but in the background)
  • Copying source files to the USB key (5 - 10 min.)
  • Renaming some files (< 1 min.)
  • Hiding files (if option checked) (< 1 min.)
  • Creating the persistence file (1 min. per 100 MB)
  • Formating the persistence file (1 - 5 min.)
  • Installing boot sector (< 1 min.)
  • Uncompressing and installing VirtualBox on the USB key (3 - 7 min.)

* If you use a proxy, please be sure that Internet Explorer has an Internet access because LinuxLive USB Creator uses its configuration.

Once your USB key is ready, go on to the next step.
