been using linux mint cinnamon for years and changed to linux lite
i am very interested in peppermint 10. when i look at the unetbootin distribution setting
i dont see one for peppermint
i read an article saying "use lubuntu 1804 live 64"
well, i have a 32bit machine and i wonder if the "live 64" will work
btw, ive downloaded  pep 10 32 bit OS
some people say use Rufus but i cant install rufus on my linuxlite
what should i do?

im thinking the only way of making live pep 10 usb is rufus
have to install a windows OS in another partition, install rufus and only then
will i get a live pep 10

nevermind. it was worth a try

There is no need to install windows if your machine has more than one USB slot... Peppermint has it's own Live USB creator Perhaps Mint Cinnamon has one hidden away in their system? :

Menu > System > USB Image Writer...

Now if you are asking about making a LiveUSB with Persistence @jikwan, I'll need to search the forum archives again.

thankyou spence for that idea

im running linux lite ---- and it really is lite---it dont have much on it---it dont have an image writer
i do have unetbootin that will create linuxmint 19.2. i could install that on a secondary partition on hard disk
i can the use its image writer to create a peppermint 10
format the secondary partition then install pep.
i ll give it a go

You can just use the image writer in a live session of Mint, no need to install it.

if you have gnome disks installed you can use that to create a bootable usb. just insert the stick select it from the displayed drives then using the 3 lines icon format first then restore disc image. you can see it here at 2:42

had a look at the vid----i did try it using the disk tool. it didnt work for me for some reason
i took a look how many files were in that "bootable" memorystick----there were only 8 compared to
many more when i used unetbootin
nevermind, next time im in town i ll get another memorystick and use the mint image creator

and if i can install everything this way i will mark it as solved
you got a very impressive list of solved problems on this forum

Unetbootin has never contained profiles for Peppermint (and this includes the latest 675-1 version) ..

This might be of interest though:

There's also Etcher.  You ought to be able to create a live flash drive with that.  It's pretty easy to use too. ;)
