===Sugar on a Stick===
====Use Fedora Live USB Creator====
+
Sugar on a Stick (aka SOAS) is the USB implementation of Sugar for its portability and efficiency. There are many methods to create a SOAS. The downloaded sugar .iso from [[Sugar on a Stick/Downloads]] is then flashed (a bootable copying process) to a USB. For people who like GUI, there are Fedora Media Writer (Linux/Windows), UNetBootin (Linux, Mac, Windows), Rufus (Windows), etc. For command line interfaces, see ''livecd-iso-to-disk'' on [[Sugar on a Stick/Installation]]
The page [[Sugar on a Stick/Installation]] describes a number of methods of installing Sugar on a Stick. Here we walk through a simple [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphical_user_interface Graphical User Interface] (GUI) method, suitable for use with a Windows computer. (Fedora Live USB Creator also works on any Fedora system.)
     −
Have a look at the Fedora program you will use: https://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator/
  −
  −
Follow the instructions on [[Sugar on a Stick/Installation]] under the heading
  −
:'''2. Use Fedora Live USB Creator'''
  −
On completion you will shutdown your PC. Restart the PC with the newly written USB stick in a USB port. See [[Sugar on a Stick/Boot]] for extra information.
  −
  −
This method is covered in this screenshot tutorial: [[Tutorials/Installation/Create a SoaS v7 Live USB in Windows]] and in this [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieIj4aECk88 video] of an earlier version of this process.

  −
==== livecd-iso-to-disk ====
  −
  −
This is the first method described on the page [[Sugar on a Stick/Installation#with Microsoft Windows]]
  −
  −
This is a robust method of making a Sugar on a Stick because you are making your LiveUSB from within Sugar, with a LiveCD you have already tested, and all tools are already on the CD.
  −
  −
You do not have to be a paid up member of the Windows community. If you are running a Linux distribution, the ''livecd-iso-to-disk'' tool will work from the CD, on any PC which will launch the LiveCD.
  −
  −
You may need to spend a bit of time to become familiar with the Sugar environment using your LiveCD, see [[Getting Started/Explore]]. You need to become familiar with the Terminal Activity and how to gain administrative permissions, that is become root. The Help Activity has a chapter on the Terminal.

  −
  −
For expert users, from a running LiveCD, Ctrl+Alt+F2 takes you to a console which could be used to run ''livecd-iso-to-disk''.
  −
  −
To proceed with ''livecd-iso-to-disk'', full instructions are here, [[Sugar on a Stick/Installation#with Microsoft Windows]], in the method headed:
  −
::'''1. Burn a CD-ROM disc, boot from it, then run the script, ''livecd-iso-to-disk'''''
  −
  −
====with UNetbootin====
  −
  −
It is possible to install Sugar on a Stick with UNetbootin.
  −
  −
There is no persistent storage with this installation method. Software updates, Activities, and documents are not saved between boots, it is recommended mainly for a quick demo of the Sugar Learning Environment.

All VMs have excellent documentation on how to boot an .iso and again it is covered on this page [[Sugar on a Stick/Installation#SoaS on VirtualBox]] and the method to make a Sugar on a Stick from your VM, is covered here [[Sugar on a Stick/Installation#with Microsoft Windows]] in Method 3, Launch a virtual machine with the Sugar on a Stick .iso file, then run the script, livecd-iso-to-disk
