    Booting Fedora from live USB in Windows 7


    I like many others am having troubles with Linux installation on USB so perhaps the Linux forum community can give me a helping hand here.

    Task: Run Fedora(Or any Linux OS) on Oracle VM from USB stick

    Os Oracle is running from: Windows 7
    USB type: Lexar 65gb Jumpdrive

    Details: So, I downloaded the Fedora Live-USB creator and proceeded to burn or copy the Fedora OS into my flash drive. From there I created a usb.vmdk file for USB emulation on the Oracle VM.

    Problem: When I go to boot up the vm it says missing operating system, so I have clearly done something wrong, maybe with the way the file was added to the USB.

    Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance.

    ***Problem was solved. Needed to run Oracle VM as administrator due to privilege restrictions on the D\: drive.
