Before we get started, you will need the following:
Linux Mint Release Candidate 32-bit or 64-bit
Universal USB Installer
1gb or larger USB flash drive
- Download the appropriate Linux Mint for your architecture (if you're not sure, if your computer is capable of 64-bit operations then you are safe getting the 32-bit version).
- Once downloaded, load up Universal USB Installer and select "Linux Mint 11 RC DVD" and browse to the location of the linuxmint-11-gnome-dvd ISO file that you just downloaded.
**Alternatively, if you have a larger USB drive I believe the program can download and install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions for you without having to do this step by selecting download the iso (Optional).
- Select the location of your flash drive and then hit the Create button.
You now have a bootable USB drive that will install Linux Mint upon reboot.
