  1. Download the latest version of Fedora LiveUSB Creator from and extract it;
  2. Plug a target USB flash drive into your computer (minimum 1-gigabyte);
  3. Launch LiveUSB Creator;
  4. Select Sugar on a Stick (Blueberry) in the drop-down menu on the upper-right side of the LiveUSB Creator window;
  5. Set the Persistent Storage slider to the maximum so you can save your Sugar work onto the USB device;
    (You may allocate as much storage as there is capacity on your device. You may allocate less than the maximum, if you want to use some of the device storage when not booting Sugar.)
    If you repeat this installation on a device after having saved some Sugar work or changes, all Sugar work and changes will be lost.
  6. Select your USB flash drive as the target;
  7. Click the Create Live USB button and then wait for the process to finish (the time required will depend mostly on your download speed);
  8. Close the LiveUSB Creator program;
  9. When ejecting the USB flash drive from the computer, first stop the device with the Safely Remove Hardware dialog.
